We believe Earthbound fans living in a country other than Japan have been neglected by Nintendo for far too long. Our response to this is Saturn Valley Online. We're convinced that an online game could unite the fans and make Earthbound popular allover the world. Are you a person who likes Earthbound and hates the fact Nintendo of America did not put Earthbound on the Virtual Console nor release Mother 1+2 and Mother 3 in the US? Do you believe getting together online with other Earthbound fans will have a positive effect on Earthbound's popularity and perhaps make Nintendo reconsider? If so, Saturn Valley Online is a game, a community, for you!
The game is an MMORPG or online multiplayer game based on the style of the humorous Mother (Earthbound) series RPGs published by Nintendo. The project started back in 2006 when Skye was annoyed by the fact Earthbound was being ignored by Nintendo of America, it was originally a one man project but soon other people who felt the same way showed interest and started to help out.
This group became Team Skyon
Our goal is to create an Earthbound styled world for Mother fans, old, new and uninitiated; to explore together. This game puts emphasis on the social side of gaming, so we encourage people to sign up and mingle on our forums and give us ideas that might improve the game. If we combine everyone's ideas, we can make Saturn Valley's New Morel a place where people come together, chat, play and enjoy the company of other fans of the series.
The game also puts an emphasis on content, our approach to quests for example, is quality over quantity. Saturn Valley Online is a game that will be bursting with references and jokes about almost anything we think will be funny for the players, but it will be presented to to you in carefully planned out quests, "dungeons" and other diversions such as mini-games.
What makes SVO so special is that there are two "worlds" you can play in. The first one is the Earthbound world where you can replay the Earthbound storyline but this time you can play it together with friends. The second world is one we made up ourselves called New Morel (Numeral, get it?) which features a completely new storyline and new content. These two worlds are separate from eachother, this means you cannot go from one world to the other. However, you can chat with players from both worlds and when you create a new character you can select what world you want to play in. This means you can have characters playing in the Earthbound world and in the New Morel world.
