I have a bunch of stories to share I hope you won't find too frightening or unbelievable !
I played on a mystical instrument a dark and mesmerizing song. When it ended, I felt sleepy, a bit angry, and overall sort of weird.

Which video game am I in? Bonus: What did I find ?


Hints !

Hint 1 :

The video game I'm looking for is a very famous one, which I'm confident everyone reading this has at the very least heard of.

Hint 2 :

This is a wordplay puzzle, as mentionned by the tag. I've now explicitly indicated the important words.

Hint 3 :

As suggested by generalcrispy in the comments, the key is to find synonyms to the emphasized words. All of these synonyms should lead you as a whole to the correct game (you don't need all of them to find the answer though).

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Could we get another clue? Seeking synonyms for the emphasized words seems to be getting me nowhere. $\endgroup$ – generalcrispy Mar 6 at 18:30

Would you be in...

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask ?

I have a bunch of stories to share I hope you won't find too frightening or unbelievable ! I played on a mystical instrument a dark and mesmerizing song.

Did you play it on a guitar?

When it ended, I felt sleepy, a bit angry, and overall sort of weird.

It's all right, that's normal when you're dead.

Then a desert witch with almost no clothes on gave me a light touch with a talisman, and her curse made me silent as well.

She was probably a Gerudo, although I can't remember that part of the game specifically.

My lips were tighly shut and I started gasping for air.

You became a mask, unable to move your face.

I began looking for some vehicle to escape with, and luckily I encountered a ...

"Kokiri" kid on a horse, who ended up using your powers to enter the water dungeon?

    $\begingroup$ I think this would probably be a correct answer... if I hadn't put the "wordplay" tag ;) I'll edit the question to make it more explicit. $\endgroup$ – Soltius Mar 5 at 7:54

    $\begingroup$ My bad, I must've missed that. This is the only thing that comes to mind, though, at least for the moment. -.- $\endgroup$ – Justin Time Mar 5 at 22:34
  • $\begingroup$ This was also my line of thinking. I've no doubt the wordplay will lead elsewhere, but having jumped quite immediately to this answer it's hard for me to reframe my thinking to lead anywhere else. $\endgroup$ – Somebody Mar 6 at 17:25

Could 11 - "Almost no Clothes on" be:

Butt-er-free

?

$\endgroup$
  • 1
    $\begingroup$ Could you elaborate on why this could be the case? $\endgroup$ – Brandon_J Mar 7 at 20:42
  • $\begingroup$ Well, if your butt is free you have almost no clothes on... $\endgroup$ – Daniele Mar 7 at 22:12
  • $\begingroup$ True, but you don't explain what your answer references - I assume it's related to Henrique's answer, but if so, this should be a comment on his answer, not a separate answer. Good thinking, though, in bringing up this possible solution piece. $\endgroup$ – Brandon_J Mar 7 at 22:26
  • $\begingroup$ This is not the answer to Word 11 (doesn't quite fit in the sentence), but boy now I wish it was. $\endgroup$ – Soltius Mar 7 at 22:48
