I honestly can't think of a better follow up to the spirit of Ocarina of Time than a 2D version and this fan game looks really great.

"OoT 2D is a 2D remake of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time that is styled like ALttP. It has been attempted many times and by many different authors, the first attempt of which was over a decade ago!

This embodiment of OoT 2D will use no already-existing engine and no utilities such as Game Maker. While building it from scratch is slow and old-fashioned, this method of programming will grant full control over everything, resulting in a high-quality product! We hope you all like it!

It is available for download now for free on PC and the project creators say it works well in Wine on Mac and Linux.

Interesting, have you played it?

Not yet, I've been into Borderlands 2 on Linux lately.

Having never played OoT and not knowing much about it story-wise, I'm looking forward to seeing how this works out and if the story is compelling in a 2D environment.
