Episode 36 - Number One Womb - Earthbound

You cannot grasp the true form of Giygas's podcast,

This week, we're going to be talking about one of the most interesting RPGs to come out of the SNES era, Earthbound. Known as Mother 2 in Japan, Earthbound is the first entry in the Mother series to be released in the States and despite underselling on its initial release has developed a cult following and it's tone and visuals have inspired both game players and developers for years. We haven't seen too many games that are this unusual and aggressively weird out of a major developer since. We talk about contrasting tones, mechanical and narrative pacing, and neurosurgery.

Thanks once again for checking this episode out, we'll be back in two weeks to discuss Overwatch!
