But developers are able to have an even deeper appreciation for the mastery on display in Tears of the Kingdom because of their own personal experiences with game development. While you or I can rightfully celebrate the game for everything we love about it, there’s something more powerful about hearing praise from folks who know a little bit about what’s actually going on under the hood. For instance, we’ve seen a handful of devs go nuts for the game’s physics engine alone.
