I dont know, it all seems a little made up, based on what Im seeing. Some sort of plot to get the thing popular. Here what I got.
What we know:
Guy is working on a 2D OoT.
Guy dies pretty much right before the project is "complete".
Entire site is removed, and everyone is told to stop even discussing the project and pretend it never existed out of "repect"
Story is now spreading accross the internet. I know I have never heard of this thing untill now. Popularity is increasing.
Someone just happens to get a hold of the project, and they complete it out of "respect"
Or the more likely:
He never got more than a couple of areas done. I can not imagine that a 15 year old has the time, or skills to map out the entire Ocarina of Time game. The game was freaking HUGE. And he did it in only 2 years? While at the same time going to school? I doubt it.
The "death" was nothing more than a quick way out of a pretty well hyped project, so as to not dissapoint all the people waiting for it.
As for the accident, the car sliding on the "wet road", weather reports say there was no rain that day, and only 0.1 cm of precipitation the day before. There are also no news or police reports of any teenagers dying in his area.
And the site? The family's first order of business on the day of his death is to make sure his site gets shut down, and leave a message saying "Dont talk about the project ever again" ?
Not to mention I am looking at a screen cap saying he logged into the site at 11:17pm that night. I thought he died at 4:00pm?
