Tips for Buying EarthBound

March 31st, 2009 | Images, Misc.

A recent EarthBound community project was to create a really tall “Saturn ladder”. It’s hard to explain, but basically people drew a Mr. Saturn and then they were later all compiled into a really huge art piece, which you can see here.


Click to see the full thing (this is only 1% of the ladder…)

It’s pretty cool, so check it out sometime!

I regret not contributing.

I like the Mr. Saturn on the very bottom. Poor thing.

GarysLaptop said on Mar. 31, 2009

That’s such a cool pic. I wish I could save the whole thing!

Wow it turned out really really cool. I agree with James when I parrot that I also regret not contributing.

Ahh! So many Mr. Saturns!

I see mine! That makes me happy. Congrats to everybody who contributed – it’s awesome.

Satsy said on Mar. 31, 2009

Such an impressive project. 😉 I like how you can get the name of the individual artists if you hover the mouse over the Mr.Saturns. A nice touch, methinks!

Who did the background, anyway? I don’t think that was mentioned. Was that also done by different artists?

I wish I knew this was going on! I would’ve loved to draw a mr. saturn for this.

Artemis251 created the Background and put together the ladder.

VERY impressive work!

/me is happy to see Leder. ^_^

mitch said on Mar. 31, 2009

I’m on there as well, as MobileSprout. Arty misspelled my name. 😉

Anyway, really impressive work for Artemis. I love his painting of Leder.

Snubbed. 🙁

The Saturn I drew is there, but no fart waft propelling it into the air.

I’m surprised fans of Earthbound are so humorless, lol.

Viewtiful_Justin said on Mar. 31, 2009

That is abso-friggin-lutely amazing! It took 15 minutes to load, but it was totally worth it!

“The Saturn I drew is there, but no fart waft propelling it into the air”

I was just thinking, “I hope the bottom one doesn’t fart” before I read this.

Flint said on Mar. 31, 2009

Pimpshi said on Mar. 31, 2009

Oh geez. That’s craziness…one of those I MUST HAVE artworks, so I went from top to bottom of the page and assembled one huge pic from screencaps. It spans over 22,000 pixels high — that’s quite the monument to Mr. Saturn!

EBisumaru said on Mar. 31, 2009

The picture links to earthboundcentral.net.

R738XX said on Mar. 31, 2009

Who’s that sexy-looking robot in the picture? 😀

Neon Squid said on Mar. 31, 2009

Holy cow! That’s an impressive picture!

Pipomonkeydude said on Mar. 31, 2009

Man, the Saturn Ladder was awesome. The wait was totally worth it. I’m glad I contributed to it.

Psychomax said on Apr. 2, 2009

@Anon He saw everyone else doing it, and he was too shy to ask why…

DragonKazooie89 said on Apr. 6, 2009

That think is SO tall! The background is really good too.

phillipblabla said on Nov. 18, 2009

one word, wow.

MuthaTweeFan said on Dec. 30, 2009

Just when I saw Leder in the full picture… they went into the Lost Underworld…

skyrunner14 said on Feb. 26, 2010

There should be another one of these so those who didn’t get to participate last time can.

Mr. Saturn said on Apr. 11, 2010

I did the second one from the top.

motherman said on Jul. 20, 2010

Nobody is the name said on Sep. 16, 2010

(WARNING: This joke has probably been done 9001 times before) But… but… only 5 can ladder D:

Cre'lus said on Nov. 25, 2011

Kind of a spoiler-ey pic for people who have not seen Giygas. It’s a cool project. The moral of it is: Don’t believe rumors. FaR mOrE tHaN 5 cAn LaDdEr.

Mikeja78 said on Mar. 16, 2012

It probaly took a very long time to get all those saturns, from drawings to 3D objects of them. That ladder just has them all.

KingOfSwords said on Mar. 27, 2012

“Hey, it’s getting light and there are clouds, we’ll be at the bottom soon…”
“Ooh! Ground! The bottom can’t be far!”
“The volcano from Mother 3?! Wow, we must be close!’
“Oh hi Leder. We’ll be touching the ground now, right?”
“We’re in the Lost Underworld! You can’t get much lower than that!”
“…I don’t actually know where we are any more. Oh hey, the bottom! Hi, bottom!”
