Earthbound Bash celebrates Mother for charity


11:15 AM on 11.30.2013



Ben Bizzle is an Earthbound fan. His friend James Hensiek is also an Earthbound fan. James has been diagnosed with cancer. When Ben found out about his friends diagnosis, he got in touch with Fangamer/Starman.net, who in turn got in touch with Earthbound/Mother creator Shigisato Itoi, who signed a copy of Earthbound to be auctioned off to support James through his treatment. 

That auction is happening tomorrow as part of the Earthbound Bash, a weekend-long live stream event celebrating Earthbound and auctioning off Earthbound-related stuff for charity. In addition to the signed Earthbound cartridge for James, there's a variety of other Earthbound collectibles up for sale, with proceeds going towards Speak your Silence. There will be plenty of special appearances from members of the Mother/Earthbound fan community, including an live interview with Marcus Lindblom, Earthbound translator/localizer/ Pencil Eraser creator. Anthony Carboni will be conducting the interview, hot off his appearance on the live Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special. 

If you're already an Earthbound fan, then there's obviously a lot for you to enjoy here. If you're among the many who have never checked out the game, or the hugely creative and supportive community that surrounds it, this is the perfect opportunity to find out more about it.
