Zelda Mystery Of Solarus XD

The Legend of Zelda: Mystery of Solarus XD is a parodic Zelda game that we released on April 1st, 2011. Though it’s a big April 1st joke, it’s a real, full game with two huge dungeons, 5-10 hours of playing, and lots of jokes and cultural references. Don't expect a regular and serious Zelda game !
