My Earthbound themed games (made in Ren'py)

#1 Post by josh » Fri Dec 07, 2007 4:09 pm

I'm new, i've been working on Ren'py for several months, and i've produced several games based off the SNES game "EarthBound".
(Although natively made in linux, these are for windows. Linux versions will be provided, upon request.)

Happy Happy Halloween

Nice. Although, I'm not familiar with Earthbound, so I didn't 'get' it. Could you provide some summaries about the particular setup here and which direction you pushed the plot?

Ran through Threed's Hero's...was funny =)

Starmen.net will tell you about Earthbound...

Having played Earthbound a bunch - heck I still have it! - it was interesting to see how it would play compared to the *true* Threed scenario. It's quite funny, and was definitely worth downloading...funny watching 3 guys who essentially are bored and tired of the zombie threat try to solve it themselves =)

Whoa! EarthBound fans! I didn't expect to run into any here. Those were good. Really liked them.

Downloaded both games yesterday, and they were a few minutes of fun :).

I can't really say too much about the content of each, as I'm unfamiliar with Earthbound. If I had to make one suggestion though, it would be eliminating the redundant choice in Threed's Heroes - everything (or almost everything) on the 'left' choice is included in the 'right' choice, so it might be better to turn it into a linear Visual Novel (ie no choices).

Congratulations on releasing your first games :)

Hi josh, following the discussion in the RAA thread, I'd like to ask whether you'd give permission to mirror both of your games (Threed's Heroes as well as Happy Happy Halloween) at the RAA (http://www.renai.us). Thanks for considering!

OMG I love Mother/Earthbound!

(btw for people not familiar with the games : Basically you're a boy on a quest to save the world from a horrible evil. Unlike other rpgs it's more about aliens, zombies, and stuff in a modern setting rather than fighting dragons or slimes like in "typical" rpgs....but there is a dragon in at least one of the games...it's really cool check it out)
