Ipswich knows how to rock, gamer style. It's annual not-for-profit arts and music festival, called Switch Fringe, has taken a rather unique direction with the town map included in its event programme. As you can see, the map has been designed like a Legend of Zelda stage.
According to a report via Slashdot
, "This is in part due to this year's theme 'Re-imagining Ipswich,' that PixelH8
is coming out of semi-retirement to play a gig during the proceedings and possibly due to the fact that the map's designer — The Decibel Kid
— spent too much time playing Zelda on a Gameboy Color during the first Web bubble."
It's always good to see people get inspired by video games in a positive way. Even if it is in the form of a simple town map. Good work, all round. You can learn more about the Switch Fringe by clicking here
