If the debut trailer for Molly Medusa: Queen of Spit didn't remind you of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, then the second trailer certainly will.
From publisher Burning Planet, Molly Medusa will be launching on Switch on April 20th, 2023. The latest trailer showcases some of the characters you'll be meeting on your journey, along with a generous glimpse at the game's puzzles and sailing mechanics. It might not share the same combat gameplay as The Wind Waker, but with heart pieces, a sail boat, a hookshot, and a more-than-familiar art style, it certainly looks like a pleasant homage regardless.
Burning Planet has also provided a nice breakdown of the cast of characters you'll be meeting in the game. Check it out:
- Olympiodora is Molly’s mother and a vase painter. Her big sunhat could perhaps become a platform to stand on if it were somehow turned into stone.
- Menelaos is Molly’s younger brother. Their father is a traveler.
- Pygmalion is a famous marble sculptor and Molly’s art teacher. He’s a bitter old man, and his relationship with Molly is strained and filled with frustration.
- Graeca sells swords and blades from all around the world. Her collection is huge. Where has she traveled in her youth?
- Adeimantus is a self-centered bully, but he is also the only person in the whole village who is of Molly’s age.
- Hipparchia stands guard at the village entrance. She is also friends with Molly’s mother.
- Laërtes guards the village together with Hipparchia. He suffers from terrible hiccups.
- Phoebes is a shy and quiet child. They secretly carry romance and poetry inside their gentle heart.
- Daphne is an adventuresome young girl. She frequently explores the surrounding forests and might perhaps be the most capable person in the whole village!

Cool, love anything to related to zelda😀👍
It looks promising to me and I like the aesthetics and Ancient Greek theme so if it gets decent reviews I will definitely add this to my to-buy list.
so stiff. i always find that these indie games lack animation, but I get that its hard to find a nice middle ground between good controls and smoothly animated characters.
While this doesn't seem to be my cup of tea, I'm at the very least glad that indie devs are riffing on a zelda game that isn't A Link To The Past, because while its a good game, its kinda annoying to see a lot of indies be basically that game, but with a different coat of paint.
I'm interested in hearing how medusa powers/curse work in their world. Everyone seems to be looking Molly in the eyes unharmed
They forgot to inspire themselves in the overall quality of Wind Waker, right?
Congrats to them on the game! I hope it turns out successful. The indie scene is very competitive.
@Deltarogue Same, I love a good 2D pixel game, but it is nice to get more variety. 😊
The animations are pretty stiff on some of the characters, but otherwise it doesn't look too bad. This just makes me really want to play Wind Waker again though.
@Bobb looks like she's not cursed yet
@Bobb Probably lets her hair down and Zap!
That’s a little TOO inspired, if you ask me. Might try it though
@Hopeful_Cynic Same, couldn't have said it better!
The voice acting felt out of place. Perhaps it was the fact that the mouths didn't move with a rhythm anywhere close to that of the syllables. Perhaps it was because I'm used to nonsensical grunts and exclamations with the animation style. Perhaps both.
I was waiting to see something happen that actually looked interesting or, you know, fun. But those things never really materialized. Hopefully the full game is a different story. I'm a sucker for pretty visuals, so I'm still interested in keeping an eye on it, but so far it's a pass for me.
