Uh, what mother fan forums? Starmen dot net? Starmen dot net is pretty dead. Toby Fox and most of the old garde have moved on, and it’s all babies now, so nothing really interesting going on whenever I check in, about once every three years lol.
Unless there’s some other forum now, which I’m sure there is. But usually I’m pretty turned off by fandoms of any kind, the new mother fandom is no exception. Tons of weird little babies who know nothing. So yeah, I don’t expect them to catch on to anything. I mean, the whole reason I made this thread was because starmen dot net’s “games similar to earthbound” section is never updated and misses the most obvious ones! It’s an echo chamber! This bleeds into other Mother fan hubs I’ve seen, which were all quite juvenile and trying to take themselves way too seriously.
Even Tomato admits Eb is not his favorite game, and Rediman admits that he just made the fansite. There are bigger mother fans out there.
But this post is cool, I somehow missed it so far too! I will signal boost it though. My friend who runs their own publication, Otaquest, is a huge mother fan.
No, the true Mother fandom lies under no single banner, it is within us all. It is within weirdos like me. And most importantly, it’s with our allyship with Frank Cifaldi, one of the number one advocates for the series’ lost history!
This has been your frontline report of the MOTHER fandom.
