The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past 2 by egodbout

In what appears to be the first 2D RPG on 2.0, egodbout (creator of the Diablo: The curse of Tristram RPG) is working on a remake of the original Zelda, within StarCraft2. It's pretty clear some work still needs to be done, in regards to pathing and what not, but it seems to be shaping out quite nicely! Check out his thread for more videos! As you can see below, he's showing off the functioning animations, music, sounds, and attack/pickup functionality.
