Yeah, this doesn't look too bad. It could be like the Earthbound sequel we never got.
futurebot
You mean this one? http://mother3.fobby.net/

I'm aware that there was an Earthbound/Mother sequel released in Japan. But it will never be officially released. I just hope that fan translation gets completed.

Camonk
I'm guessing that the original earthbound is also a sprawling piece of crap that's collapsing under the weight of it's own trudging banality? Wow I'm sure glad we're getting more of THAT...

So, there's not any fighting or anything in this game? Is it just the main character doing something the creator of the game can't do in real life: talking to people?
Rafiki
You beat me to it. Of the two videos of this game I've seen posted on POETV, there's absolutely no gameplay shown other than walking around and talking to people. In fact, going back to watch the first video, he sells the gameplay as solving puzzles and trading items to enter new areas. So it's a huge game of dumb Fedex quests.

There was one puzzle that seemed quite clever- it was something like Yuu (!) need to get your brother to turn off his computer, and he says SURE, IF YOU GET ME SOME BATTERIES FOR MY GAMEBOY! So you go into the basement and throw the breaker switch. Lateral thinking.

joffe b
did he really have to be naked to make this game?
klingerbgoode
beaten

goddamn naked fool

Making a game by yourself isn't impossible or unique to yourself, o vain dork.

I want to hate him for the ego trip mentality, but it does look like a cool game.

Except for the bits that involve him.
Camonk
What the fuck is with you people saying this looks cool? Based on what? What the hell is in there that makes it look like anything more than ego wank? Oh there's walking... AMAZING! And... dialog well I NEVER! Jesus you are the most easily impressed people in the world.

Harveyjames
It's cool like a dude making Notre Dame Cathedral out of matchsticks is cool, or a mile-long length of chain out of gum wrappers.

Keefu
Well, it looks Earthbound-ish and it, well...

yeah, nevermind

StanleyPain
At this point it's irrelevant. He's never shown the game running on a DS, never shown what the second screen will do, and never allowed anyone to see any portion of the game outside of his own videos.
So, even if you think it looks cool, chances are like most weird, obsessive fan projects it will never be released in any appreciable way because he either keep tweaking it until it breaks, or make some weird decision like 'I'm CHANGING ENGINES!"


StanleyPain
I take it back. I wasn't aware he finally showed videos of it running on a DS.

Camonk
So "pudgy kids" have there own clique, but there's only the one scrawny kid?

PS: Making shitty games is not "impossible" we all just wish it was.

MrBuddy
I sware one of those teachers looked like Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII (and you thought Severus Snape was harsh!)
Udderdude
This guy is blowing his own horn a little too much.
Keefu
Just a little

Frank Rizzo
yeah, I was just about to mention the ego tag.

Seems like said 25 year old is still obsessed with his high school social structure.

PUT A DAMN SHIRT ON!

There was a great thread on the Somethingawful forums where Bob's "friend" posted about the game and how awesome Bob was for making it, and everyone was tentatively supportive and excited, but then they asked for more details on the game, as they were interested, and Bob himself signed up and went into full-on insane autism mode and just defended his own genius while refusing to give away any details because everyone would steal them while everyone ripped into him for four pages.

Also, for a game based entirely around dialog, Bob writes shit dialog.

It might be worth it to double his time size and get someone who can write.
