A downloadable game

Unfortunately, Nintendo has asked me to take stop hosting the game. It can no longer be downloaded. Follow my future projects on twitter!

After being inspired by Nintendo's 2D prototype of Breath of the Wild, I've decided to try out making my own fan-game! Breath of the NES offers a new adventure in the classic Zelda style, but with smooth animations and a more interactive world!

The demo lets you play around in a mini overworld, testing out the gameplay, and discovering tons of fun items! Please let me know what you think!!

(Edited 1 time) (+1)

You can't. It got copy-wronged by Nintendo.

how do i get it?

can I download it


How do I download this? Or is it unavailable?


it's unavailable

Amigo no se como descargar tu demo ayudame porfavor

No se puede. Actualmente está baneado su demo. Lo va a rehacer todo el proyecto y ya no se llamará así, para q Nintendo no le pueda reclamar nada. Quizá encuentres algun link d descarga en los comentarios.

it would be awesome if in your next project like this to make a little nod to this demo. keep up the amazing work!!

Drake, this is incredible. I think it was wrong of Nintendo to shut this project down. Could you make the protagonists tunic green?

winterdrake, your work is remarkable. But unfortunately your work has been suppressed. But a software called Scratch is an educational software so it can not be suppressed. I worked on a demo in French and English that you can take back if you want. : https://scratch.mit.edu/projec...

Quisiera pedirte permiso para grabar el juego y compartir el link esta pagina para que mis suscriptores lo descarguen ^^ si se podria? 

¡si por supuesto!

There is a fake app for cellphone, called "Breath of the NES", which is phising your, cause only show screencaps & ads. You should report, mate.

PS: Could you upload, where we can test the game online, when you have a final version?

whoa, interesting! I've never had that happen with a game of mine before.

When the new game is playable I'll be sure to share it with you all!!

hi i know the game was taken down but if you would ever want to translate the game to arabic i the future i would be more than happy to help

by the way do you have any idea when you can get the game running again im interested to see what you will make it to since you have to change it now


This game has a lot of potential and I really enjoyed playing it :) Can't wait for more updates to come, so excited to see what new things will be added to this game!

How do i dowload the game ^^ I would love to play it !

Sry for bothering some people but i'm new to this...


It's in the description. Nintendo won't let him host the game, so he had to take it down.

This Demo is very nice, but I hate that I have to replay the whole Demo when I was killed...   Sorry for the bad English

tu peut sauvegarder en cliquant sur le petit symbole (s/c) en haut, tu as le choix de le sauvegarder en ligne ou avec un code, tu as une sauvegarde auto tous les 10min, lorsque tu tue tous les ennemies d'une map ils disparaissent, mais il y a la lune de sang qui les fait réapparaître.

pour ma langue, je suis français, ton ordinateur te traduit automatiquement mon texte et connaissant google traduction, il traduit toujours tous de travers.

Je vous propose une version demo faite en deux semaines pour remplacer celui là

Oh my gosh i'm so sad this got shut down ;-;

Version 1.3 is on TPB


link please

https://mega.nz/#!QwVERDpK!MfFioHejSyjfaVeQEmOW0lhYfxmfiPg8hN4Oy7gyRjA is this 1.3

what's the decryption key for the Breath of the NES demo?

Hello, I really wanted this game i thought you could change the name not Zelda Breath Of The NES because like you said Nintendo doesn't want you selling the game so i thought you could just change the name and then you won't be attacked by Nintendo! justing saying btw i REALLLY want this game!!!!

Can somebody who previously downloaded it put a mirror up or post it on piratebay please?

(Edited 1 time)

I have 1.3 version downloaded, but from what i know, there were higher version before deleting link to download, but if you want i can put a mirror\

(Edited 1 time)

Could you? That would be awesome, I just hear about this and I am super bummed I won't even get a chance to play it.



Can you update the game under a different post in the future so I can get to keep the current build in my files?

Exactly my thought

Winterdrake im gonna make a twitter account and im gonna help you to make a adventrure game like breath fo teh wild

so sad this got shut down

Expected this day one, the more you talk before something is ready the more you're going to risk losing it.

Cannot believe folks still don't know how to shut up until something is done.

We've lost a lot of cool fan projects thanks to impatience.

ye and Nintendo being greedy with their characters

Well that's one thing, but it has a lot to do with how copyright law works as well.

(Edited 1 time)

Have you ever thought that Winter intended for this to happen? Of course he knew if it got big enough Nintendo would stop it, but it being a 2D top-down remake of a huge title such as BOTW is great to publicize the game. there was already a plan to make new sprites before Nintendo did anything, and I would say that the early versions brought a lot of attention to his project, I would say this is a HUGE success so far, wouldn't you?

Well, there's a couple of thoughts...

a) I will keep condemning the concept or premature fanfare. (various reasons)

b) good theory and might be very true

c) the new sprites could still be just the dev getting cold feet ahead of time, but well after making the game public. I'm not saying that's the reason definitely, but then again nobody can look into the dev's mind. Just a theory.

d) Yes, a huge success indeed.

this may sound stupid but wheres THE download link?

nvvr mind they say that they closed this really sad

By The Way Im a graphics designer and i tried making my own games i had very good textures to start with but had no knowledge to code

How do I get version 2? I only saw 1.3 when I downloaded previously though v2 vid was on site.

v2 never got finished 😥




Im your biggest fan, can i help u to make this game i love to make games

i really appreciate the support!😁 If you want to help out with anything, let me know on Twitter! Thank you!!

Sorry but i have no twitter

Then make one, easy peacy

How to download or play this game of zelda


You cant download it anymore

What are you using as programming language

I'm programming the game in Game Maker Studio!

Hey winterdrake, first off big fan of The Breath of the NES its wildly entertaining even as bare bones as it is (its a shame you got shut down), second are you using GSM2? Also is there any way to IM you directly, I'm working on a project myself and was wondering if I could get your input and pick your brain.

im using GMS1 although I'm probably going to be forced to switch to GMS2 later in development. Contact me on Twitter if you'd like to chat!

ok, unfortunately I don't have a twitter but if you'd like I just set up this email t.wrecks922@gmail.com hit me up, thanks
