The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
is already a rather creepy game. The darkest iteration of the franchise yet, MM's
tale of a world constantly on the verge of ending is oftentimes haunting. But what if the cartridge were actually haunted?
What would the game look like?
A tale credited to Jadusable has been chronicled on Creepy + Pasta
. The story begins with a mysterious shop keeper and an odd cartridge -- "It was the standard grey color, except that someone had written Majora on it in black permanent marker." Given away for free, the recipient played through the game without a problem; the only noticeable glitch involved NPCs calling him BEN, the name assigned to the cartridge's first save file.
Activating the Day 4 glitch
, however, spawned a number of odd, unexplainable events that only a ghost (or a very determined hacker) could produce. One of the game's most iconic lines -- "You've met with a horrible fate, haven't you?" -- repeats throughout the eerie series of events, chronicled on YouTube. Who is BEN? And what could this all mean?
