About Mother 4July 28, 2011
When Travis, younger brother of Belring’s promising and hard working Zack, learns that not everything in his world is as it seems, he prepares for the adventure of his life. When a pulse of mysterious energy blasts the area during a visit to Flutune, Travis and Zack find themselves in the middle of something much bigger when they witness a dear family friend and many other citizens abducted by mysterious men in flying ships as local wildlife, plantlife, and inanimate objects are sent into a violent frenzy. What is the cause of these strange happenings? Who’s responsible? After a narrow escape, Travis and Zack resolve to get to the bottom of things, with the help of a few others who find themselves involved. Throughout their adventure, this unlikely group explores a vast world, and discovers something astonishing, both about the world around them, and themselves.
The world’s about to change forever. Can Travis and his friends put a stop to this strange threat to their world, or is this enemy too much for anyone to handle?

- Zack: A strong, kind kid. Oh, and Travis’ brother.

Starting in 2008, MOTHER 4 began as a fun little after-work project started by Chaisu and a friend. After posting the project on Starmen.net, it received a wave of helpers and fans and grew larger than anyone had expected.
Since then, the game has completely changed. There has been revision after revision to the story. The game’s engine has moved from RPG Maker to Game Maker and is now being custom made in C++. Over the years the team has undergone many staff changes but, as always, is striving to create the most realistic “Mother 4” possible.
