Second Quest raises $70K to reimagine Zelda and games through art

Once upon a time, a hero was born. He defeated evil, saved a princess, and then did the same thing over and over again, only more poorly.

Writer Tevis Thompson no longer thinks The Legend of Zelda is good, but he hasn’t stopped believing in it. Neither has Braid artist David Hellman or the 1,500-plus backers who pledged money to their Kickstarter campaign Second Quest, named so after the post-game challenge in the original Zelda that has since become a regular staple of the series. The Kickstarter ended tonight, surpassing its funding goal of $50,000 for a grand total of nearly $70,000. (Braid, Culture, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword)

I pledged enough to get the hardcover book. October 2013 seems so far from now!

He doesn't like Zelda any more? Odd.

I think it's kind of one of those things where you've been loyal to a series for so long, and you're disappointed in where it's gone/is headed. I understand that. I feel this way about one of my favorite series, Silent Hill. Love it, but I'm it's toughest critic.
