Giant Mr. Saturn Plushie Interview
H.S and friends have been working hard on the EarthBound ROM hack that remakes the first game in the series. Here’s a look at the current title screen: And here’s a short video showing off stuff in the first town in the game: There’s still a lot to be done, and if you want to keep up with all the itty-bitty, nitty-gritty details, you can follow the project’s progress here...Read More »
Tyler sent this in a while back: Hello Tomato, I work at the children’s library in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. Awhile back I sent you a message about a toy theatre adaptation I’m putting together of Mother 1 and though I’ve still got a lot of work to do, it’s coming along well. Toy theatre is basically a small table-top puppet show usually done with paper cutouts. Once up...Read More »
DragonDePlatino has released a new ROM hack for EarthBound Zero that changes the game in many neat, interesting ways! Mother: 25th Anniversary Edition aims to make Mother much more enjoyable for both Earthbound fans and those playing it for the first time.

Miles V. has been working on an EarthBound fan music album called “Moonsidian” for a while now – in fact, I briefly covered it back in 2010. It’s nearing a release now, so here’s a quick preview of a few of the tracks! And here’s a preview of one of the tracks, called “Instinct of the West”. Try to guess what song it’s based off of within the ...Read More »

Anyway, there were a few things related to EarthBound in there – the biggest one that wowed a lot of people was when it was revealed that you could take in-game screenshots and draw on them. One of...Read More »
A couple years ago I released a program that randomizes and jumbles up the content in EarthBound so fans can play the game in entirely new ways (see here.) People find it so much fun that now there’s a content randomizer for EarthBound Zero too, courtesy of BBGangZombie! This program can randomly change a bunch of stuff in the NES EarthBound Zero ROM. For example, it will change enemies arou...Read More »
A couple readers have sent in some pictures of the Devil Car enemy from MOTHER 1/EarthBound Zero as it apparently appears in the upcoming Smash Bros. games. I don’t know the source of these or if they’re even legitimate, but I thought I might share them anyway since they look pretty cool regardless: In EarthBound Zero, this name was actually localized to “PsychoCar” to av...Read More »
Longtime fans of Starmen.Net and/or EarthBound Central probably recall the name Stephen Georg/xfis – he’s the guy behind so many amazing EarthBound projects over the years. He was even part of Fobbies Are Borange, which was a radio play of EarthBound, as well as the EarthBound Zero spinoff, Loids Are Not Christmas. The thing about Loids Are Not Christmas was that Stephen hadn’t r...Read More »
