Unearthed Update: Battle Backgrounds Implemented

Just a quick update for all of you peoples who have been asking me about Unearthed. All of the battle backgrounds have be integrated into Unearthed, and I have assigned them to individual enemy groups.


This is a (belated) follow-up to my April post regarding the creation of 150 new battle backgrounds. Matching up battle backgrounds to about 260 individual enemy groups was a bit tedious, but it is finally done and I can focus in on more interesting things. Like bug-testing! And that Twitch stream I’ve been putting off for a year! Woo!

As always, check back to the blog or my Twitter for regular updates.

Unearthed Update: New Battle Backgrounds

I have completed another milestone in my never-ending game design quest. Behold! Mother 3 battle backgrounds integrated in the EarthBound ROM.


Well, that is just a single battle background. But I assure you, I’ve inserted¬†about 150 of them into¬†Unearthed. I’m not sure if I’ll be using all of the new backgrounds, but I certainly will be including the ones that look this cool (psychedelic sun dials!).

I still have to assign these backgrounds to individual enemy groupings – a slow and tedious process – but most of the heavy lifting has been done. Once I’m finished with that phase of production, I’ll put up a short demo on the blog. Additionally, I’ll be writing up some¬†instructions on how to include these backgrounds into your very own EarthBound hack.
