Awesome Geek Dad Mods Zelda and Turns Link into a Girl in the Process

Legend of Zelda Mod

We’ve got another awesome parent to add to our list of Awesome Parents of 2012, who will be joining the ranks of the awesome mom who modded her son’s push car into a DeLorean. This time around, we’ve got Mike Hoye who did some modding on The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker so that every reference to Link refers to him as a her. In short, Mike turned Link into a girl for his little three-year-old girl named Maya.

Mike explains that he did it because “she’s the hero of the story.” Maybe Maya finds the story more relatable with a female lead or a heroine, so her dad made it happen. It took a lot of work, too, since it probably took Mike a few weeks at the very least to finish modding the entire game.

You can read about how he did it here, if you’re curious.
