Shigesato Itoi’s Gold Mine Adventure
I got a humongous package of MOTHER goods from LucasTizma and Onion today (super duper thanks!) that I’m planning on posting about soon, but first I thought I’d show off this. I absolutely love old 80s gaming guides, they’re so full of life and enthusiasm. Here are two random pics from one MOTHER 1 guide I like:
There’s a ton more pics and info here, definitely check them out when you get the chance. It’s incredible (and sad) to see how staler guides have become since then, here’s a pic from the official MOTHER 3 guide, for example – and that’s one of the better pages!
Basically, I love EarthBound / MOTHER merch, but the strategy guides are probably my favorite type of all. They somehow manage to capture the feel of the games that shirts and keychains can’t. I’m sure glad EarthBound’s guide got that same treatment before guides started to go bland!
