SpellBound is an EarthBound hack featuring Picky and his brother Porky. The objective is to (unwillingly, of course) track down and defeat the chosen four one by one in order to initiate King Porky’s Pigmask Empire in the distant future.
Along the way, you will meet their previous adversaries in combat (with many more surprises under their sleeves) and recruit them as party members as well.
Both Picky and Porky have very limited psychic abilities, but this shortcoming is compromised for Picky’s magic skills. You are given a spellbook full of commands that you will learn out to utilize both in and out of battle (much unlike EB’s PSI system) over the course of the game.
You will be able to earn these spellbooks that contain different commands by completing sidequests and defeating bosses, as well as finding secret areas in the game.
Progress as of this video’s upload time is as following:
*Picky’s gameplay is well established, and the spellbook is working optimally.
*The beginning of the game has been completed.
I’m quite proud of the progress of this hack, and I’m hoping it works out the way I want it to. Seeing as I’m off to a good start, I’d say that you can expect more.

THIS IS EVERYTHING I’VE EVER WANTED
Wow :O This sounds awesome. I’d love a game where you play as Porky. It seems odd that Picky is helping him, though. Maybe not of his own free will lol. And then the magic… but I guess something has to make up for Picky’s lack of PSI. That’s a little weird, but HOLY SHIT. Who gives a crap about the Mother 4 fangame? I WANT THIS!!!!!!!!!!
