Mother 3

January 1, 2009

This maze was made in honor of the video game Mother 3.  I made a similiar maze earlier based on characters from the game’s previous edition, Earthbound.  This is full of various enemies and characters found throughout the game.  Unlike my first Earthbound maze, this time I did actually make an attempt at polishing the maze up in photoshop.  The main characters and the sunflower field were edited in, everything else was hand drawn.

Anyway, let me know what you think!  Be sure to check out more details of this maze and many many others at my gallery site, .

Here it is in all it’s unedited glory- the 100% dedicated Earthbound maze. The maze isn’t particularly challenging, but there are 21 (so far) characters and objects in the background that come straight from the game. I left a small part blank because I still want to add the four playable characters.

I tried to incorporate certain levels into the maze itself- obviously Onett is present from the beginning. The grid pattern in the bottom right is representative of Fourside. The flames are there to show Fire Spring, but they also serve as as a metaphor for the increased hardship Ness and his friends must face as they near the end. Finally you’ll have to travel through Giygas before you can find your way out. FYI, there is no pencil eraser or eraser eraser- you’ll have to find another route!  Be sure to see more details at
