Pier Solar HD heads to Kickstarter

Written by David Stellmack



2010s biggest 16bit RPG for Sega MD is back


Does anyone remember the Sega Mega Drive game released in 2010 called Pier Solar? Well, it was a 64MB cartridge that featured what the developer calls “the biggest 16bit RPG title ever!” Most cartridges back in the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive era cartridges were 12MB, so is a big deal.

Indie developer WaterMelon is bringing a new HD version of Pier Solar to Xbox 360, PC, Mac, Linux, and Dreamcast if the Kickstarter funding is successful. The developer notes that the niche title is massive with 50 hours of game play, over 300 locations, and 800 NPCs.

According to the developer, the SD version is already up and running on Xbox 360, Dreamcast, and PC, but the developer does not want to release it as a direct port; instead, they want to release Pier Solar in a new HD version so that it looks as stunning as it should. The developer claims that they are putting the same level of attention into the HD enhancements as they put into the original development of the game.

The developer has taken to Kickstarter to get the necessary funding, of which they have a goal of $139,000 to proceed with the development of the HD version on the specified platforms. As of this writing they have already been able to raise over $88,000 of the necessary funding.

While the title is projected to arrive in December 2013, if funded the retro niche of the title should prove interesting if the developer is able to raise the necessary funds. The developer is offering a number of different donation points that cover a lot of different perks for fans of the game.
