Ploaj is working on a remake of EarthBound Zero/MOTHER 1 using MOTHER 3-like graphics. Here are some screenshots:

Kind of reminds me of this old post.

Anyway, you can read more about the project here!

So this isn’t a modification of the existing Mother 3 engine, but a from-the-ground-up remake? Whoa.

Knowing history of these attempts this project will end up dead. This is like the third attempt I have seen someone try to remake Mother 1 using mother 3 graphics. :\

I hope this won’t end up dead, it looks really good. Also, I’m pretty sure he won’t abandon it because AFAIK he’s already got a lot of the main stuff down, such as the battle system, the menu system, etc.

If those pictures really are actual in-game screenshots, this remake is definitely farther along than any of the other ones. Having been a part of Toast’s remake, most of the shots from that were complete mock-ups, the most we ever got done was a very pre-alpha battle system with one enemy.

I have high hopes for this project though, it looks like a lot of work is already done.

Is this a rom hack or a RPG Maker executable?

Ploaj said on Aug. 8, 2012

Cool! I didn’t expect to be mentioned here 😀

I would just like to say that there is no chance I’ll ever completely abandon it. I tried this last year but I accidentally deleted the engine so I restarted. Since I still wanted this to be a reality I restarted.
This from scratch in Game Maker.
It’s currently only 5 days old actually, and I’ve already got the menus and a majority of the battle and over-world systems done. 😉

Great work, Ploaj! I’m really anxious for this, as well as the Mother Remake. If you need a tester, I’d be glad to help.

Apparently, I am not the only one who is reminded of old attempts…
I am surprised that they died.
