'The Legend of Zelda' documentary seeks Kickstarter funding

By
A Legend of Zelda documentary looking to explore the franchise's cultural influence is seeking funding on Kickstarter.

It's Dangerous To Go Alone... The Movie is seeking $50,000 in crowd-funding ahead of its planned launch in December.



Created by Joe Granato, the documentary aims to "examine the pervasive fascination for 8-bit gaming beyond nostalgia", all the while exploring Zelda's international appeal across cultural divides.

"From the time most of us first touched the 8 bit cartridge, our lives were changed," reads the Kickstarter blurb.

"As children, the fantasy game contained in that golden plastic NES cartridge was our initiation into our own imaginations. Years before we were able to delve into and appreciate the worlds of Tolkien, we became the heroes of this adventure story.

"The game franchise continues this day to inspire and compel new generations. Our film will be its own narrative adventure story through which it will explore the games' far reaching influence."
