EarthBound Journal Scrapbooks Across Eagleland

The EarthBound JournalPlenty of people in the video gaming community have gone on and on about Nintendo's EarthBound for the Super NES, and for good reason: it's spectacular.  It's also really hard to find now outside of Japan unless you want to spend a lot of money, so if you're curious about this whole EarthBound thing and want to get a feel for the story, here's your chance.  Created by Armand K., The EarthBound Journal chronicles the story of the 1994 RPG in scrapbook form as written by the characters themselves.

Having finally played Nintendo’s classic game Earthbound (Mother 2) earlier this year, I was compelled to create some art inspired by the game and the joy it brought me. After many, many hours (150+), I give you The Earthbound Journal. It’s meant to be a journal written by the four heroes from the game, recounting their adventures through commentary and imagery. Basically, it’s Paula’s scrapbooking project.

The journal mostly sticks to the established storyline, although it takes a few creative liberties here and there to flesh out some details (not to mention the surprising plot twist at the end).  It's an interesting art project and worth a peek.  Now, is this the part of the article where I'm supposed to implore Nintendo to offer Mother 3 as a downloadable title for the Nintendo 3DS?  Because I'm still very interested in doing that.
