Zelda Deforested is a serious game that revises the Legend of Zelda by removing all of the forest elements and replaces them with a rocky and monotone landscape. The graphics and sound have been redesigned to create a new narrative in which the protagonist is found in a dystopian world where people have taken to living underground due to changes in the environment . Within these bunkers the protagonist encounters characters hoarding supplies and trying to deal with the struggles of living life underground. Only one animal species has survived in a terrain without trees and water. The hero has taken to hunting in order to gather food and barter for tools. This work intends to challenge viewers to critically consider the role of technology in modern life and its relationship to the natural world.
