Alright we've all seen brilliant attempts at beating games with the most incongruous of peripherals, like Bloodborne being defeated with a Guitar Hero controller or Metal Gear Solid being beaten with a dance mat*. But one gaming Hero of Sparetime has taken the hijinks to a whole different level of madness, and it involves a very familiar musical instrument.
Twitch streamer MonotoneTim has taken up the challenge of going through the seminal Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time using a real ocarina as a controller. Yes you read that correctly.
Using notes and pitch modulation to control Young Link through battles against Ghoma and King Dodongo, MonotoneTim makes light work of the two early bosses, which is ridiculous when you think about it! He's playing the game with a friggin' ocarina. Lord knows how he even comprehends Z-targeting.
Seriously this is a really impressive feat, and as much as I'd love to see MonotoneTim smash his way through the entirety of OoT, I'm sure his lungs would probably explode like a bomb in King Dodongo's belly. So... be careful Tim.

*I tried this once many years ago and was incredibly unsuccessful with my endeavor. It's the taking part right...?
