-->''Learn something, experience somewhere, grow some more.''

Mother 4 is a fan game in the VideoGame/{{Mother}} series that is currently in production by Azure Studios. It started as a game made in RPG Maker, but was later moved to the GameMaker engine, and then to its own custom made engine in C++. The game follows the adventures of a young boy named Travis and the leader of a bike gang named Leo, who get caught up in the events surrounding a group called the Modern Men. More information can be found [[http://www.mother4game.com/ here]]. The game is slated for a Winter 2014 release. Oh, and that's winter at the end of 2014, not the beginning. Still, you have a nice Christmas present for next year.

!!Tropes used in ''Mother 4''
* ArtEvolution: Compare the [[http://m4old.andonuts.net/wp-content/gallery/old-screenshots/chasehouse.png early screenshot of Travis (Formerly named Chase at the time) on his porch]] to [[http://www.mother4game.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/relaxing-scenery.png this even newer one]].
* {{Book Worm}}: Meryl.
* {{Darker and Edgier}}: It's been stated that this game will be darker than VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}. And considering how dark ''that'' game was...
* {{Delinquents}}: Fitting of the games 'idealized' America setting, Leo and his biker gang are based off the 1950s version of this Trope, right down to the lether jackets and greaser style hair.
* DesperationAttack: A new element called the "Final Stand" feature will be used, causing a character's stats to dramatically increase while their health is rolling down toward zero. Similarly, when your psychic points are rolling down you can still use PSI for a cost as high as the number the meter indicates as it slowly decreases.
* DevelopmentHell: Hey, it wouldn't be a ''MOTHER'' game without this.
* FanSequel: Quite possibly one of the most promising ones on the internet. Not only does the overall style stay faithful to the Mother series as a whole (the sprites taking cue from {{Mother 3}}, but being set more in VideoGame/EarthBound and {{Mother 1}}'s 'modern' urban setting), but even the music doesn't sound far off from something that would be made for an 'official' Mother game.
* InUniverseGameClock: Time passes between day and night (if you so choose it) when staying in a hotel, with a number of different tasks and events available only at certain times of the day, or with specific character combinations.
* {{Leitmotif}}: As in ''Mother 3'', every one has their own battle sound effects. Unlike the 3rd game, they have their own level up jingles as well[[hottip:*: see VariableMix below]].
* MusicalNod: They've remixed the ''MOTHER'' title theme, "Humoresque of a Little Dog", the hotel theme from ''MOTHER 2'', and the Yado Hotel's theme from ''MOTHER 3''. They've also combined and remixed "Battle Against a Dangerous Foe" and "Sanctuary Guardian".
* OriginalFlavour: You'd swear it was an official ''MOTHER'' game if you didn't know it was made by fans. It's even apparent with the music. For example, "The Green Run" sounds just like the Onett theme, right down to the instrumentation, the beginning bass line, and the trumpet duets.
* PsychicPowers
* {{Retraux}}
* {{Sampling}}: One of the battle themes samples several sounds from ''VideoGame/EarthBound''. Fittingly, the theme's name is "Battle Against a Familiar Foe".
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: One of Floyd's attacks is to bribe the enemy with money so they'll stop attack them.
* [[{{Seers}} Seer]]: Meryl can see into the future.
* SkyscraperCity: They've stated that they have a Fourside equivalent.
* SliceOfLife: Perhaps not to the extent of Persona 3 and 4, but emphasis is being placed on character relationships and interactivity with towns and cities beyond using them as a means to continue your adventure.
* SpoiledSweet: Meryl.
* VariableMix: Instead of a singular level up jingle like the other 3 Mother titles, every character will level up with their own leitmotif (Travis's is a retooled version of the original level up tune). These will seamlessly overlap with one another when two or more characters level simultaneously.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Meryl's sprites (at least so far) show her to have purple hair.
