Ocarina theme

It’s dangerous to go alone! Take this.

Ocarina is a medium contrast colour scheme loosely inspired by The Legend of Zelda video game series. It has been created in celebration of Zelda’s 30th anniversary. It comes in light and dark variants, while using a single 16-colour palette.

Packages or ports of it are available for Vim and Atom, as well as the Xfce4, RXVT-Unicode (urxvt), and XTERM terminal emulators.
