EARTHBOUND: In the Year 199X +1...
(a fangame, title pending)
is your chance
to provide me with feedback about this fangame that I'm working
I haven't figured out how to use forms properly
yet, so for the time being, what you'll have to do is provide
feedback to me via
e-mail. Before you provide feedback, make sure to look throgh
some of the other sections under the "My EB Fangame" header, as
they'll give youa better idea of what I
have in store for this game.
I'm making this game almost as much for the fans of EarthBound as I
am making it for myself, I figure that it might be a good idea to
get your opinions on a number of issues, so that I can better build
my game so that more people will be happier with it. Feel free to answer as many or as few of
the questions as you like. Thanks!
(PLEASE keep in mind that although all of your
comments will be read and considered, not all of them can or
will be implemented in the final version of the game. IF I feel
that you've contributed a significant idea that I end up using, I'll
likely list your name somewhere in the credits, unless I thought of the idea on my
own before hearing it from you...)
Just copy and paste these questions into an
e-mail message and answer as many as you like, then send them to this
. Thank you for your time.
1) Though it's not likely that I'll be changing
my mind on this, would you have rather seen direct ports of graphics from EarthBound (for the SNES)
for this game, or new graphics?
2) Of all the characters in the EarthBound/
Mother universe (save for Ness), which six character would you like
to see most in this game, even if it's only
in the form of a cameo?
3) Of all the enemies in the EarthBound/ Mother
universe, which six enemies would you like to see most in this game, even if it's only
in the form of a cameo?
4) How do you feel about an EarthBound game being a point-and-click "Adventure" game
instead of being a Role-Playing Game?
5) If you've played other point-and-click
"Adventure" games, name a few, and let me know why
you did or didnt like them.
6) A lot of people liked the music in
EarthBound an awful lot. In your opinion, would it be best for me to
simply re-use EarthBound's music? Or should I actually try to get
someone to make original music for the game (hopefully music that
would be faithful to the feel of EarthBound's music)? Or would a
mixture of the two be better? Or would putting any sort of music in
the game just be a mistake?
7) As you're likely aware, Ness didn't talk in
EarthBound (or, we weren't TOLD what he was saying, at least). In your opinion, should Ness speak in this
game, or should he remain silent?
8) This game will be released in a series of
parts that I will call chapters, each of which will be
self-contained pieces of the story. The upside of this is that
downloads will be smaller and hopefully their more manageable size
and the feedback from each chapter will keep me motivated enough to
continue on with the project. The downside is that you may have
siginificant waiting time between chapters being released. How do
you feel about this "chapters" system?
9) Since this won't be an RPG, combat, though
it will exist in the game in some form, won't be very much like that
seen in EarthBound at all. What are your feelings on the change in
how combat will take place? (NOTE: The combat in this game will
likely take the form of inventory puzzles, conversation puzzles,
logic puzzles, and combinations of these.)
10) If you've played other EarthBound fangames, which
ones were your favorites and why?
11) If you've not played any other EarthBound fangames, why
are you considering playing this one?
12) It's not likley that I'll be implementing
the "Name Your Characters/ Dog/ Favorite Thing/ Favorite Food"
ability into the game (frankly, I'm not sure how, even though I'm fairly certain it can be done).
How do you feel about this?
12.5) Supposing that I DID give you some
options for your favorite thing and favorite food, what would your
favorite thing and favorite food be? (Though I'm not sure if I will,
I *MAY* include at least some of the choices that people respond
with for this question, so if you want there to be a chance that
your favorite food and/ or favorite thing be listed in
the game, THIS IS YOUR CHANCE!!!)
13) Similar to questions 2 and 3, what
characters, enemies or locations would you rather not
see in this game, and why?
14) Supposing this game is any good, and that
Mother 3 is apparently right around the corner, what do you suppose
my chances are of having Nintendo making me cease and desist before I
even get a third chapter out?
15) Speaking of the chapters, should each
chapter have a seperate title? Or should they each be called
something like EarthBound: (subtitle) -- Chapter 1, etc.?
Let me know what you think.
