Grassy Grottos

My favorite video game setting. I want to live in these places. Please make sure your plant-filled cave is lush, friendly and comfy.

They call it a Space Station but perhaps it still meets your criteria despite the windows.

I always loved the light world in LTTP coz most of it was lush and green, especially under the bridge where you get one of the bottles off that guy camping. It always just seemed so cozy and comfortable down there.

Can I tell you this one little screen is possibly why A Link to the Past is my favorite game in the series? Whenever someone mentions the game it’s almost always the first image that springs to my mind.

it’s “Moss World” so actually hardly anything i posted is grass haha

this thread reminds me of when i would play Worms as a kid and just dig tunnels into the terrain instead of fighting, acting out little stories. there weren’t that many grassy maps but it had a similar sort of comfort
