Pier Solar for Mega Drive... AND Dreamcast! (SOON)
« on: August 17, 2014, 00:58:14 AM »
Hey gang, one last one I wanted to bring up while I think of it and again, I couldn't find a thread so thought I'd start one, the MIGHTY Dreamcast refuses to die huh!! The gorgeous Pier Solar which came out for Mega Drive on its 20th anniversary and it has since been announced as a HD Remake/rerelease on Dreamcast and many other major platforms.

Has anyone played the Mega Drive version? Do any of you plan to get it when it comes out? I tend to pledge/back these quite early on so my Dreamcast copy has been paid for about a year lol. I'm interested to know what you guys all think of this one, it will probably be too long of a game for me to ever complete but I have to own it, its on DC after all  :4:

We've discussed it and there is a thread talking about it for PC and other systems.  It's OK to have a thread for the Sega systems.  :)

I have the MD version, and I backed the Kickstarter for the DC version too  :113:
I haven't finished the game but I did play quite a bit and I really like it.

I missed the original Kickstarter as well.  At least it can be preordered on their page.  :)

Got an email from Watermellon with updates for some of their projects.
Here's the part about Pier Solar,

Pier Solar
We know everyone has been waiting patiently for the final release dates for Pier Solar on Dreamcast and each of the modern platforms. We're in the absolute final stages of bug testing and submissions/acceptance with Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony.

Pier Solar is almost here and as soon as we get our final acceptance (SO soon!!!!), we will announce the final release dates and you'll be playing Pier Solar HD in no time.

As for Pier SOlar REPRINT, REPRINT EP and strategy guide, we are still tweaking our new manufacturing quality control process. We will send a separate news with more details shortly. Thanks for your patience.


Getting close  :113:

We have release dates for some of the platforms!

Quote
Hi everyone.

We're proud to announce that Pier Solar will be released on September 30th, 2014 for PS4, PS3, STEAM, and OUYA. Development is completed for all remaining platforms. The release dates for Xbox One, Wii U and SEGA Dreamcast will be announced next month, pending certification (Wii U & Xbox One).

Starting on the 30th we'll contact the backers of the above mentioned platforms and provide the download codes. As soon as the Wii U and Xbox One versions get certified we'll contact the backers with those versions to provide the codes. Also, physical versions will take a bit longer due the extra tests necessary on the discs since they can't be patched.

Best regards!
-WM

I already have this one on the MD, but if ebay snipers don't jack up the Dreamcast version I may get it as well down the road.

Yeah I have a copy from the first reprint, but I also backed the Kickstarter for the DC version. Looking forward to it being finished so I can compare the two, also never finished the game which I plan to fix!
