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.
