"The SNES was home to some of the most important RPGs of all time; fans to this day still hold Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy III (VI), Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars and, of course, Earthbound in high regard. The year was 1995 when Earthbound hit Western shores and the cult classic established itself as one of the most memorable RPGs of its time. At the period, seeing an RPG in a modern setting, with suburban locations was a huge novelty that sparked players' imaginations. Compounded with an emotionally gripping story and offbeat humour penned by Shigesato Ito, Earthbound left a lasting impression that influenced young minds to eventually create games that were influenced by this immortal classic, such as modern titles like the obscure Grasshopper Manufacturer DS game Contact and Double Fine's Costume Quest. Even the creator of South Park, Trey Parker, cites Earthbound as a huge influence on his work: "mundane American setting and child heroes" was a concept that fuelled the engine of South Park: The Stick of Truth. Now Eden Industries aims to give players its take on the lasting inspiration of Earthbound with Citizens of Earth."
