EarthBound fans have pulled off a variety of wonderful community events/projects over the years:
Nearly every year it seems like we've managed to take things to an exciting new level, and this Kickstarter / Convention has begun to feel like a grand finale of sorts.
In spite of everything going on, I have to confess that I haven't been particularly engaged with the game for years. Since I went to college in the early 2000's, EarthBound has been a macguffin: a convenient excuse to try new things, learn new skills, and meet new friends. That's why the aspects of this project I'm most excited about are the Documentary and the Convention. Its exciting to get to tell the story of the fans who make up this community while simultaneously planning its next chapter.
The reason I bring this up is because I feel its important to point out that this campaign has something for everyone: from die-hard fans/collectors to adults with little more than fond memories of renting the game (or visiting earthbound fansites) when they were young. This community is old and scattered, but it's always a thrill to see the troops rally for another project. Join us!
