August Update

Posted by Aevin , 06 Aug 2016
Hello, everyone! Welcome to PureZC's little news corner.

First of all, I'd like to once again welcome Polaris (Shane) to the PureZC staff. We've brought him on as a forum assistant! We feel he's demonstrated great maturity, and has been a part of PureZC for a long time. He's hosted events, runs the unofficial skype group, and is an active quest developer. We're confident he'll do a great job! If you haven't already, you can give him your congratulations here.

Four new quests have come out this past month, each following very different styles. First we have Kivitoe's classic NES-styled "4-temples," then Mr. Redead's LttP inspired "The Dark World's Return." Next, we turn to an open-world adventure in the Link's Awakening tileset with Yeto's "Island of Yeto." Finally, a side-scrolling quest in the style of Metroid, we have "Metroid: Origins" by ywkls. In addition to quests, there's a lot of other gems, so be sure and have a look through the Scripts, Music and tile portions of the database.

After many years, a big change has happened in the quest database. Shoelace's The Hero of Dreams has at last been dethroned as the #1 quest. In the Lost Kingdom of the Banana Blood God by Moosh and Russ currently stands at the top. Will its position stand the test of time? Why not go see what all the hype is about?

Summer is winding down, and for many of you school starts again soon. There's still some free time to play quests, or make quests and other resources. Oh, and maybe some other stuff like "playing outside" or something, too.

Thanks for tuning in! You all have a great rest of your summer!
