Dink Smallwood is a rather tongue-in-cheek RPG developed for Win32 in 1997,designed to be Zelda-style in appearance. It has since gathered a hugefollowing, with numerous fan-made quests (D-Mods) being available fromthe Dink Network.
I know a lot of people have been hoping for a port of this game for a long time. The website mentions some code that needs to be replaced, but I hope that someone gets a Linux version up and running soon.
