Tips for Buying EarthBound

April 30th, 2015 | Audio Stuff, EarthBound, Hacking, MOTHER 1

I shared this during the last EarthBound Central live stream, but it’s awesome enough that I want to share it here on the site too!

Basically, the EarthBound Zero / MOTHER 1 remake hack for the EarthBound ROM is making significant progress, and vince94 recently did a custom version of Pollyanna for the hack, using EarthBound’s music engine. It turned out amazing:

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

This is too good! I bow to you, vince94!

EDIT: The basic arrangement was inspired by a remix by Nelward Music on YouTube, which you can check out here!

LOVE IT. I really can’t wait to play this.

This MP3 was actually made by a guy named Nelward Music on YouTube, and I commented on his video, asking him if I could cover it in EBMusEd for the Mother Remake.
He never responded, but I ended up drawing from a bunch of other versions of the song too, so as to not steal the arrangement from him outright, LOL.
The final version that I made is here – https://youtu.be/sKR0KfZZ1xI

Oh nice 😀

Sorry for the confusion! I don’t want to take credit for this guy’s arrangement.
Could you edit this to give him credit/link to the version that I did?

Thanks for the update, vince94…I actually like your final version better than this one. 😀

Sounds awesome. I can’t wait to play it when it finally gets finished.

The Mother 1 remake hack believes the morning sun always gonna shine again. Speaking of that song, you totally took the little guitar from the end of it. xD I’ve heard that version of the song so many times, there’s no way I wouldn’t notice that, lol!

little guitar solo*
Is what I meant to say. :p

Outstanding, I would easilly believe it’s an unused tracked if you told me so!

Looooove it. Pollyanna is one of my most favorite songs ever.

The much older Bein’ Friends is really good too.

TokoWH said on May. 1, 2015

That’s amazing. That has to be one of the most accurate EarthBound style remixes of Pollyanna I’ve ever heard! As someone who loved the 8-bit original rendition, let me just say this is an incredible remix!

I can’t wait for this game!! It looks awesome~ ^o^v

With those instruments it sounds just sounds… too much like EarthBound music. I feel like this game is trying too hard to turn MOTHER 1 into an EarthBound-like experience, and in doing so is robbing it of it’s unique charm.

Star and Moon said on May. 3, 2015

@Matt It’s running in Earthbound’s engine so it’s gotta use the same kind of instruments and stuff. At least, I think that’s how it works.

Either way, that’s kind of the whole point of the mod anyway.

If that song is playing I’m gonna be standing in one place for a while just listening to that awesome song.

NessinEagleland said on May. 4, 2015

That was excellent

nelward said on May. 7, 2015

Thanks for giving me credit!

I love the way this arrangement includes the background “dooweeooweeoo’s” from the version from the OST…
