Despite being a mild success in Japan and a flop in the West, the MOTHER/Earthbound series is one of the greatest sources of plagiarism inspiration amongst indie developers and the RPG scene has been forever been changed by it. What exactly explains this?

uhhh they like the game?

I want to see a WRPG earthbound-like

It was one of those cult classic games that had little recognition and a very devoted fanbase with a feeling of being cheated out of a sequel (or at least an official Mother 3 translation even after it was announced) which made people make their own spiritual sequels in an attempt to plug that hole in themselves. Then those people became gamedevs themselves.

River City Ransom didn't have the same impact but is comparable in its cult status making a strange number of fan content. Sonic was popular but its fanbase proactivity was probably more due to its present games being so different from the classics. Fallout: New Vegas might have a moment like that in the future.

YIIK is based on Earthbound?

 No.20381

Beyond being a quirky jrpg set in a modern setting, no. YiiK is mainly based on Murakami novels (to the point of straight up quoting one of his books in the game).

 No.20497

the japanese portrayal of american culture is camp-y and endearing
it had an actual memorable story which is extremely rare for a jrpg
it's generally auteur-ish and aesthetic for some game that came out on the SNES and gameboy in the 90s which were typically arcade-ish platforms
