"The Legend of Zelda" has inspired an oddly named Australian indie developer known as the Prideful Sloth to create an adventure game that is very much "Zelda" in nature. "Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles" is set to make its way on the Sony PlayStation 4 as well as on PCs on July 18.

In the meantime, "The Legend of Zelda" has been getting rave reviews especially since it is one of the launch titles for the recently launched hybrid console Nintendo Switch. However, those on the PS4 and PC platforms may not have been able to experience Link's adventure if not for the adventure game by Prideful Sloth. Take note that the team is made up of former Rocksteady staff, the team behind the "Batman Arkham" series, which is said to be of great pedigree.

The game is said to have taken notes from "The Legend of Zelda" seen in the latest teaser trailer reveal. From the color palette, down to the landscape features and the little creatures on the game, "Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles" is every bit the "Breath of the Wild" action that PC and PS4 gamers are set to feast on. As for the story of the game, "Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles" deals about a dark cloud gradually consuming a lush land.

Furthermore, the game also sports eight different environments akin to "The Legend of Zelda" such as beaches and snow-capped mountains. The game also features hundreds of NPCs as well as a day and night cycle. "Yonder: The Cloud Chronicles" is expected to offer a meatier experience than most indie games with an adventure to look forward to, GrabIt Magazine reported.
