Mother4 thumbnail.png Oddity RPG Started off as a Mother fangame, but has been rebranded and now has no relation to the Mother series. Some info from a website (that should not be named) reveals that the tone is most similar to Mother 1, about as long as Earthbound, rhythm combos from Mother 3 make a return, maps are open similar to Earthbound, no need for grinding (but don't expect to spam boosting moves and being able to steamroll bosses) and dialogue will be devoid of internet memes.

Unreal Tournament 2014.jpg Unreal Tournament FPS A reboot of the series, with the same old deathmatch fun, fully modern Unreal Engine 4 graphics, and free! Not some fake "free to play" that is actually "pay to win", the game is really completely gratis for players (the only catch is that Epic takes a 30% cut from community-made paid mods).

As of late, some of the dev team behind this are currently working on Fortnite, which kind of sucks.

ON HOLD (Probably cancelled)
