I just realized I live in Hyrule. Well, Ohyorule.

The next time you criticize a video game's climate changes as being unrealistic, keep in mind that in my state it can change from Summer to Winter blizzard in 12 hours. Miyamoto should make the next Zelda game in Ohyorule. ...

Indie Dev Adventures: Marketing
