Geek Treasure: DIY Legend of Zelda Chest With Sound

When you spend hours upon hours playing a video game, all of the sounds and songs that are repeated over and over in the game tend to become a part of your permanent memory. Even if you put the game away for years, hearing one of those sounds again can trigger a whole tidal wave of good memories. That’s why you should brace yourself before watching the below video if you’re a Legend of Zelda fan: it features the most awesome treasure chest to ever occupy the third dimension.

The treasure chest looks a lot like those found in the Legend of Zelda games, but the best part is the way it sounds. When you open it up, it plays the song that you hear in several of the Zelda games upon getting a treasure chest item. It’s one of those iconic songs that most gamers will recognize immediately. Zachariah Cruse, inventor of this excellent homage to an outstanding series of games, we’re grateful for your contribution to our Zelda addiction.
