For now, here are some sample screenshots of the game: Again, che...Read More »

The past few weeks and months have been filled with news about a game called Flappy Bird. The whole thing’s been a crazy story that eventually resulted in the game’s creator taking the game down. The theme of a recent game development jam was to make a Flappy Bird-like game, and it looks like a fellow named Cory Martin made an EarthBound-themed one: FlapBound! Until now I’ve ne...Read More »
I’m very much out of the loop, but there’s a series of Japanese visual novel games called DRAMAtical Murder. I don’t know much about it, except for what I’ve read here. It seems that for an April Fools joke, a parody called DRAMAtical Mother was created that looks a lot like MOTHER 1: Here’s a video of it in action: And it looks like you can play it here (scroll do...Read More »
When I was in high school, one of the unexpected highlights was that I had to get a fancy calculator for some of my classes. I used to make little games of my own on it, and eventually people figured out how to put fancier games on them. Since then, calculators have become a haven for game programming hobbyists. One cool example is this project by Eiyeron to put together a MOTHER 3-like engine on ...Read More »

I’ve fallen behind in the update queue again, so it’s time for another blast of mini-updates! Anchorman/Earthbound mashup Joe sent this in: I found this video of an RPG remake of the movie Anchorman, and it is very heavily influenced by Earthbound! It made me happy link Giygas Bag Zombie Crow sent: Hello! I became a huge fan of Earthbound just last year. The games have made a big i...Read More »
About a week and a half ago the guys at Fangamer were like, “Hey, Valentine’s Day is coming up. We should do a podcast about love sims.” And then the discussion turned to, “Hey, we should make our own love sim.” And then I was like, “Hey, I know how to program games.” And after a few days of hard work by lots of folks, the game is complete! Behold: Sweet ...Read More »
A few days ago I posted about how the Ultimate Chimera Hunt game mode for Garry’s Mod was back in action (see hee). Now that it’s back up and running it’s gained a lot of attention, especially thanks to some popular YouTube players. Here they are playing Ultimate Chimera Hunt for the very first time, with no MOTHER series knowledge or experience at all. As you can see, they have ...Read More »
Trying to learn to type Japanese text on QWERTY keyboards can be tricky, so there are lots of games out there to teach Japanese people how to do it. I recently ran across a fan-made MOTHER 2-themed typing game called something like “Gyiyg’ Strikes Back Again”, check it out here! The story is that after Ness defeated Giygas, Giygas’ spirit still remained. Since Giygas was o...Read More »
- cattledriver: it’s obvious these are fakes. if Ness Isn’t in the game I might not buy it. I mean. I originally only bought smash bros...
- Anonymous: My 2 cents. I don’t think the game (Mother 4) looks bad at all (though the graphical style isn’t my cup of tea, per se) but...
- Oh My: No, I’m not ticked off. Not even a little. I’ve tried to explain the position of the fans who do not approve of Mother 4 as a...
- Raiden: It’s sad but I don’t think we’ll ever see Mother 3 or 1 being put on the Virtual Console. I don’t have a Wii U but...
- Raiden: You act like you’re a little ticked off Oh My. I don’t understand the big deal about why Mother 4 should use a diffrent name....
