8bitsandwich recently sent this in: Hi there! I’d like to share a project of mine I just recently completed.

Saturn Valley Online has been around for quite a while now – if you haven’t heard of it before, check out the site here. Anyway, Skye, the head of the project, recently sent me this: You remember Saturn Valley Online I assume. I wonder if you could do a shoutout to the EB community that we’re urgently looking for a second C# programmer. Darkfrost is currently doing all the codin...Read More »

Over the years there have been many attempts at recreating MOTHER 1/EarthBound Zero in a more modern format. As far as I know, none have the projects have reached completion yet, but I was recently shown this project that looks promising: There’s not much information, but it looks like it’s being made for Macs. See for more info and some screenshots. Now if someone would just make thi...Read More »

TalentNinjaInc., qpringle1, and NorthofOnett have been working on a fan game called Super Smash Bound – from the name you can probably guess that it’s an EarthBound-themed Smash Bros.-type of game. Here’s some sample gameplay: A beta version of the game is available on the project page here, and progress can be more closely followed on the Starmen.Net forum thread here! ...Read More »

Every time I see a video of that Ultimate Chimera Hunt Gmod, I’m amazed by something new. And even this particular video is pretty old by now, I’m still amazed by the way all these MOTHER 3 locations looks in 3D: I don’t have the stuff to play this myself, but my many hats go off to the fans who designed these awesome-looking levels and the neat little touches like turning into ...Read More »

Most fans by now know that there’s been a fan-made Mother 4 in the works for a while now. I check it out every now and again, and it seems to be coming along pretty well.
