This new footage from the EarthBound-inspired Y2K looks soothing


Digging the style

Y2K is still in development, and it wears its EarthBound/Mother inspirations on its sleeve. The latest footage of the RPG shows the protagonist running around in the "East Mainstreet" town area, taking in the sights while a soothing track plays.

The art style is excellent, and the modern/retro look is doing the game a lot of favors. I especially dig how far the draw distance looks, and the idea of exploring vast faraway lands looks fun.

It's a tiny sneak peek, but I'm interested.
