earthbound or MOTHER 2 Documentary Announced by malerfique earthbound or MOTHER 2 Documentary Announced by malerfique

For a year now, Jeff Benson has been interviewing MOTHER fans, Starmen.Net users, and members of the EarthBound team in an attempt to document the space between a bunch of kids coming together on a message board and the reemergence of a cult classic—not to mention the formation of Fangamer, the business Starmen.Net played a major role in founding.

The documentary is called EarthBound USA, and it’s about how EB fans have fought to popularize the Mother series in North America since the 1990’s.

We’ve been keeping this project quiet, but our last interviewee has a lot of Twitter follower

Just finished an interview with some American MOTHER 2 fans who came to see me. Some of them were in elementary school when they played it but are now married with children, and still have a love for the game to this day. I’ve had all sorts of projects in my time, but this game is definitely in a league of its own.

Our time talking with Shigesato Itoi about the overseas fandom was strange, beautiful, and fascinating.

A Kickstarter is planned for later this year; we’re hoping to release the movie in 2015. We hope you like it.
