After way too much time, it's finally here. Nothing super exciting; it's meant as an introduction to the people who never played the game.

I decided to release what I originally intended to be the first half of Chapter 1 on June 27th, the same day Source Filmmaker got an official release statement. And to be honest, I don't think I could manage to make the second half of this without SFM (it is pretty ambitious after all).

Q: 1968? What? Isn't EarthBound in 199X?

A: EarthBound primarily draws from "america, as seen by the japanese", and a myriad of pop culture references that, while occidental, are definitely NOT from the 90s. TF2 takes place in June 1968 and all the aesthetics of the universe reflect that (except Coldfront?). And finally, if EarthBound had been made in the US, it would have probably taken place in the "wonder years" era of the fifties and sixties. Its themes place it more firmly there than in the nineties.
