Arzette: The Jewel of Faramore is heavily inspired by Link: The Faces of Evil and Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon, two games generally considered bad that have sustained a long lasting popularity as a meme. Arzette creator Seth Fulkerson noted that, although his first introduction to the CD-i Zelda games was through YouTube Poops and memes, he had a sincere love for the titles and was not making his game as a joke nor an attempt to shock people, but rather to bring the redeeming qualities he felt those games had to the forefront.
