MaternalBound

Hack of EarthBound

Description:

MaternalBound: An EarthBound & Mother 2 Bond!

This is an Earthbound hack which takes as ultimate goal to make it as close to Mother 2 as possible, taking care of most of the uncensoring that NOA made during the localization of Mother 2, including even the Gas and Title Screen modified to match that of Mother 2, and also a modified Credits sequence.

Mainly, create the best experience possible of Mother 2/Earthbound, combining an uncensored version of Earthbound made from scratch (graphical and text-wise), and also adequate a Mother 2 title screen and references, this ROM will no longer be named EarthBound, but rather a proper Mother 2 american version of the game, like it was supposed to be and leaving the main game intact (without modifying any core-gameplay mechanics).

The changelog and modifications done to this hack is QUITE extensive, so head over to Starmen.net’s Forums for full details on what has been changed and also instructions on how to apply the patch properly:

True dedication

Reviewed By: rainponcho on 15 Apr 2017

Hack sets high standards for itself. To turn a well-known game into a finely tuned machine. As I never played it before without this patch, this one made it a good experience. Everything looked clean and ran well. Didn’t see anything that bothered me.

After the ending, read the regional comparisons and changelog fully. Checked out changes myself. Everything in the game was carefully combed over. This finished product: nothing distracting was left in there. Finely polished and sculpted muscle of romhacking. Nice.
