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 »

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 »

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 »
8bitsandwich recently sent this in: Hi there! I’d like to share a project of mine I just recently completed. It’s my personal tribute to the Mother series – a map for Team Fortress 2 based on Saturn Valley. I know what you’re thinking – this has been done over and over already. But take a look at the screenshots I’ve included. It’s not a direct recreation ...Read More »
It’s interesting how for the past many years EarthBound fans have been clamoring to remake EarthBound Zero using various different tools. The latest attempt is by AcePsycho, who’s used Game Maker Lite to re-create the intro from the game: AcePsycho adds: This is an Earthbound Zero remake that I attempted. This is only the intro, but if I get enough views on my video, then I will conti...Read More »
