It is no secret that I absolutely love The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I’ve been playing it every day and running all over Hyrule. There are many great parts to the game. One thing that I have been having fun discovering has been the sunrises and sunsets all around Hyrule. I capture many of them with the screen capture button on the Switch itself. The world is so expansive and beautiful. I enjoy just walking around. But, what went into making this game and how long did it take. There are so many questions to answer and these three videos do a really nice job talking about the game and its creation. There may be some minor spoilers but nothing too major, it is mostly about what was done to make this epic game that so many have discovered and loved.
How does the world of Hyrule in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild relate to Kyoto? Where did the game’s musical inspiration come from? How were the sound effects for Link’s footsteps created? Which time period in Japanese history inspired the Sheikah Slate? All of these intriguing questions will be answered in this developer video series.

Enjoy! And after you are done watching, get back to playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. You have a world to save!
I should take more lessons from Eva. One of them is to color outside the lines. She’s not even two so there is no way she’s going to have the muscle control to color in the lines in coloring books. Lines and structure are no match for Eva’s crayons.
I’ve been reading Trust Agents by Chris Brogan and Julien Smith and the first chapter called Make Your Own Game. In this chapter we explore the concept of games and how we first learn to play the game then we hack the game and lastly we make our own game. If you watch young children just learning how to do things for the first time they do things their own way always until they learn to do it “the right way”. Right?
The thing is if we didn’t have people who colored outside the lines we’d never have any innovation ever. Without the game changers there wouldn’t be an internet, an iphone, or chocolate ice cream. The world would be plain old vanilla and stepford would be a reality.
I’m very lucky to be friends with an incredible game changer, Ted Murphy. Ted is going to be redesigning my blog. No, scratch that, he’s going to do a complete tear down and an amazing rebuild. I’m not sure exactly where he is headed with it but I like the direction so far. Today he revealed my new logo on twitter. I wasn’t even online at the time. Allison was and she was like, “You’ve Got to See This!” I had no idea what she was looking at but right away I was really excited with what she saw.
So now I guess my current business cards are what you would call collector’s items. I have about 850 of those collectors items to give out to people who want them :-). I am glad however that Ted revealed the logo today because I ordered something super secret for IZEAFest and needed the logo. On top of the black and white logo Ted even uploaded some color ones.
So, what do you think of the new logo? Do you think that it will change the game here at BenSpark.com?
