Earthbound’s Onett In Mind-Melting HD

“This took me about a year to make” says Christopher Behr, 3D designer extraordinaire. Looks like a year well spent.

Chris took the first town in Earthbound, Onett, and rendered it in such painstaking high-fidelity that I’m freaking out right now at it’s sheer awesomeness. Somebody calm me down before I hurt myself – or just come take a look-see at these pictures and freak out with me.

    That is absolutely insane, but an absolute labor of love.

    Here’s hoping for Moonside next. Neon, neon, everywhere!

      Do you want Moonside done in HD?

        Yes, even though I had mixed feelings about Earthbound. I loved the writing and quirkiness, but I seem to be ruined forever on the Dragon Quest battle system, which is too similar to Earthbound’s for me to grind through. I tried the game for the first time in 2012, and stalled out somewhere in the third town.

          Hehe… and stalling out is why you said “Yes” instead of “No.”

          Some games are worth enduring the pains of grinding. This is one of them.
