Mother 2.1: Slightly Less Terrible Edition

Hack of EarthBound

Description:

Once upon a time, there was someone who was stupid enough to not like EarthBound and make a sarcastic hack of the game. He became so hated for his hack that some people even actively attempted to end his life because of his clearly unforgivable sin of having an opinion about a video game. Not having learned his lesson, the dumb sap went and did it all over again and this is the result.

Mother 2.1: Slightly Less Terrible Edition is just that. A slightly less terrible version of the Mother 2.1 hack previously posted by FractiousLemon. There are some new adjustments to the dialogue as well as graphical and gameplay alterations as well here. If you want to play a completely pointless hack of EarthBound that exists for no particularly good reason, featuring equally pointless changes to dialogue in random locations, mildly less pointless changes to a few character and enemy sprites, and one or two extremely pointless inside jokes that only one person in the world will get, go for it. Be my guest. If you become offended when someone doesn’t like a video game and swear violent revenge when that person makes a ridiculous and insincere slight against a Japanese celebrity he’s never heard about, then don’t play this game. You’ll only end up wanting to murder me and that’s really a lot more trouble than either you or I want over something as stupid as a completely irrelevant video game hack.

TL:DR Version: This hack exists and it sucks, so play it if you want, but don’t get mad if it turns out to be exactly as stupid as I told you it was.

Hack Features:

  • A run button and more streamlined menus thanks to the EarthReBound hack.
  • Tenda tribe renamed to Gummi like in the original Japanese, for no good reason.
  • A few enemy sprites edited because I could, also for no good reason.
  • Attempts to manipulate your opinion of Porky and everyone in Happy-Happy Village now dressed in blue, for a little bit of a reason, but not a particularly good one.
  • Snarky jokes about Shigesato Itoi watered down to two little stupid jokes in hopes that nobody will actually try to kill me, but it’s probably better if you just don’t play this hack at all if you like EarthBound in any way.
  • I don’t know, I think I made a joke about Tony’s creepy stalker obsession with Jeff.

If you hate Jokes, this is for you

Reviewed By: daJoschi on 17 Aug 2018

Ever had the issue of playing EarthBound, just to be confronted by a dry humor game with good punchlines, a lot of charm and actual effort in writing and localizing?

Angry that you just finished Undertale (Full disclosure I enjoyed Undertale) just to jump into EarthBound while realizing that this isn’t your internet humor indie rpg from the 2010s?

Always wanted to have your game throwing a super self aware line here and there? Without any actual changes? The original script isn’t cynical and salty enough? Having your character a slightly different name is a bad localization for you?

Well, fear not! This hack is totally for you! With amazing grade-A gags like “No Fat Chicks” or a totally witty one liner during the death of Buzz Buzz because that’s totally “”"hilarious”"”.

“Come back if you finish EarthBound”? Nah, that’s a good meta joke, let’s change it to “Come back if you finish the game”

Mother 2.1 is the romhack for everyone who hates jokes and believe that Itoi’s writing is narcissistic and pretentious!
