In the Year 199X +1...
fangame, title pending)
is your chance to provide me with feedback about this fangame that I'm
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
you a better idea of what I have in store for this game.
Considering that 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 address
. 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
2) Of all the characters
in the EarthBound/ Mother universe (save for Ness), which characters would
you like to see most in this game, even if it's only in the form of a cameo?
(feel free to rank them in order of preference, if you like)
3) Of all the enemies
in the EarthBound/ Mother universe, which enemies would you like to see
most in this game, even if it's only in the form of a cameo? (feel free
to rank them in order of preference, if you like)
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 and what it was about them that made you feel that
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
have some 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
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

Thanks for stopping by.

be more to see...)
