What is this?
PK Scramble is a key item shuffler for Earthbound! How? Well...
- The game script is patched to handle being played out of order.
- Areas opened by moon logic (like the mines) are already opened.
- Areas opened by long-distance plot flags are opened with new key items.
- NPCs who teach PSI or talk about visiting "Your Sanctuary" locations unlock random teleport destinations.
Then it shuffles all the key items, character join locations, and teleport locations.
Finally, enemy stats, chest items, and shop items are scaled to match some logically-possible path through the game.
The Y button is run. The R button lets you manipulate your last-received item. You start with PSI Teleport. Have fun!
If you get stuck, try talking to a hint man!
