Tips for Buying EarthBound

April 19th, 2016 | MOTHER 1

A group of passionate EarthBound fans has come together to produce a documentary about EarthBound Beginnings, its history, the prototype cartridges, the eventual official release, and more.

The title is “Mother to Earth” and the project looks genuinely impressive. The team has even lined up interviews with key individuals including the game’s head localizer and the people involved with the prototype’s leak in the late 1990s!

The documentary guys need help funding this endeavor, so they’ve created a small Kickstarter here:

And here I was just wondering when/if Roo was going to do a follow-up retrospective on EarthBound / EarthBound Beginnings in light of the VC releases. Looking forward to seeing this, though; it’s always great to hear insider information on the development / culture of my favorite games (particularly those from before my time), and I’m sure EarthBound Beginnings definitely has a lot more secrets to be shared!
