- Zelda Eternity
Hey, all! You know what I don’t like? War, famine, death, pestilence, poor game design, and internet trolls, but most of all I don’t like long-dead ancient people making predictions about where and when our modern, advanced society is going to end. Nevertheless, some culture decided that this is exactly what they’d do (to upset me, no doubt), and so the newest conspiracy theory to come out of the Mayans (apart from tearing out the heart of a virgin will appease the heathen gods) is that the world is going to end in a paltry 72 hours… Hey, that sounds familiar…
Turns out, I’m not the only clever bum in the Zelda community, and other fans have recognized this correlation as well! Yes, Terrible Fate recently surfaced and serves as a countdown to the end of the Mayan calendar. Join Terrible Fate as they wait out the last few days of life on Earth in full celebration of the greatest series of video games ever– no, wait, just Majora’s Mask, actually. Still, the thematics at play here are quite compelling.
For accuracy’s sake, I suppose it should be mentioned that this website is actually just a teaser for a new music album to be released after the apocalypse. You can investigate further here and here. But we’ll all be dead by the time it comes out, so that doesn’t really matter, does it?
So, all of you meatbags with too much free time! Head on over to Terrible Fate and enjoy the World’s Most Outdated but Still Widely Referred To Calendar’s retirement party! In the meantime, I’ll be over here carpe-ing some dium and yol-ing some olo’s.
And here I thought Time’s End was supposed to be an old man standing at a lamp post…
