In the wake of the immensely successful Super Mario Maker, fans and wannabe game developers itching to explore their creative tendencies further turned their attention to another Nintendo property: The Legend of Zelda. Rumors of an official Zelda Maker have swirled online for years, its existence the product of mere speculation and hopeful thinking. While Nintendo may or may not be at work at a Zelda version of its Mario Maker formula, other developers have stepped up to the plate.
Block Quest Maker, originally released on mobile and Steam, has the look of an indie Zelda Maker. It features voxel art direction reminiscent of 3D Dot Game Heroes and an intuitive creator toolset, but some of the designs in the final product constrain its potential.
