Don’t get too excited, Shigesato Otoi wasn’t involved, and there’s nothing official about this otherwise fantastic fan-made masterpiece-to-be. That said, it’s shaping up beautifully, and every detail screams Earthbound.
In typical Mother fashion, the story follows a group of youngins as they uncover the truth about their seemingly lazy town. Naturally, things aren’t as they seem and the gang travels across the land, exploring various locales and digging through plenty quirky quests and characters.
The game features an original story, artwork and music, and was built by fans with love and respect for the franchise. Mother 4 will be a free download when it launches this summer on PC, Mac and Linux.
