EarthBound Completed in 9 Minutes
June 13th, 2009 | MOTHER 3
About a year ago, while I worked on the MOTHER 3 fan translation, a goofy bug turned up:
It quickly became an inside joke and everyone on the blog and on Starmen.Net was quoting it. It got to the point that there were even many requests to put it on a shirt and sell it or something. I kept telling people, “I dunno, maybe after the translation.”
Then I forgot about it until a little while ago when reid and Jonk asked me about it. They wanted to make a patch (a literal cloth patch) with the phrase on it and sell it on Fangamer, a new company they made. I was like, sure go ahead, knock yourselves out. The result is this:
You can check it out here on the Fangamer site. There are limited quantities, so if you happen to be one of those “welcome to the :|” fans, pick one up quick! Jeff and I don’t get anything out of this, but I thought people would like to know about it anyway 😀
