Show Notes

What's real? What's fake? Can you trust everyone you mean on your journey and even if you can, should you do what they say? While this may sound like the thesis behind The Stanley Parable, it's one of the many complex themes in Link's Awakening, a 4 bit Game Boy game released in 1993.

On this episode, myself and a host of Zelda fans talk about this miracle of a game. First experiences, ending conspiracies, and why the game works as a work of fiction and a work of play.
