EarthBound (or Mother 2) is a SNES game which was released in 1994 in Japan, 1995 in North America and never in Europe. A cult-classic and generally regarded as one of the best RPGs of the nineties, EarthBound follows the adventures of Ness as he sets off to save the universe from an evil alien named Giygas. The game is really rather more surreal and twisted than this basic plot premise may suggest, and so Egg Says Whut's very own Sebastian has taken it upon himself to help you more easily digest just exactly what type of story EarthBound is attempting to tell, albeit very subtlely.
Like many Nintendo games, the world may appear both bright and cheerful, but this game hides many dark layers below its colourful surface. So pour yourself a glass of fine wine, then sit back and relax as we find the plot of EarthBound.
