Update #1

Original 16-bit SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis Graphics in Pier Solar HD!

Original 16-bit SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis Graphics in Pier Solar HD!

Wow, 57,000 in 2 days...we are really humbled by everyone's support. We can't express how excited we are and how much we are looking forward to bringing you guys Pier Solar HD!

We've got a surprise for everyone to celebrate!

We wanted to keep this easter egg a secret till a little later... but since there have been so many questions about it, we decided to announce this for everyone right now!

The original SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis graphics of Pier Solar HD will be playable on every single platform, XBOX360, PC, Mac, Linux, and Sega Dreamcast.

It will be unlock-able by finding a special in game item, a "Pier Solar Mega Drive Cartridge" that is hidden somewhere in the very beginning of the game...

Once you find this, it will unlock the entire version of Pier Solar for the SEGA Mega Drive & SEGA Genesis!

Lastly, we've been listening to you all and we added a couple new pledges and tweaked a few more.

1. The Digital Bundle. This bundle includes the XBOX 360 digital version, the PC/MAC/LINUX version and the full 4 CD Pier Solar OST in MP3 form!

2. The Physical Bundle. This bundle includes EITHER the regular physical edition of Pier Solar for Sega Dreamcast OR the regular physical edition of Pier Solar for PC/MAC/LINUX and the physical 4 CD Pier Solar OST! We will send you a survey to select which Dreamcast region you want later.

3. The "Big Boss" pledge, where we will create you as a big boss in Pier Solar, we decided to make this pledge even better by including a limited edition Dreamcast or PC/MAC/LINUX version that is limited to 10. It will included a custom cover with you as the big boss on it as well as the original signed sketch!

      Will the original version also have the original music as well?

      @Hollow_Tears Yes you will be able to play Pier Solar in its original 16-bit graphics. The HD version will have new things here and there, but you'll have to wait and see

      Will i be able to play the original version on the pc after i find the hidden item or is it more just the hd graphics be replaced with the 16bit graphics. Ether way i am looking forward to this game.

      How much added content will the hd version have compared to the original.

      @Thorium @Mathias Schiefner You sure can. Take a look at our FAQ at the bottom of our Kickstarter page for details on how to get multiple pledges!

      @Fl4v1en each pledge is not stackable and only includes what is listed within its detail section

      a 4CD Soundtrack addon option for the CE pledge would be nice.
      and a X360 version addon option

      cause i want the PC CE Pledge + Physical Soundtrack + 360 Version
      (and i only can select 1 Pledge here)

      Hum, and about the 125$ pledges, do we have a code for the xbox version too ?

      Creator Valery on November 8, 2012

      I would prefer FLAC or Ogg/Vorbis versions of OST to the dated mp3 format. Please consider that options.

      There was a Kickstarter project that used Bandcamp to distribute their exclusive soundtracks digitally. You might be able to contact that user for assistance on your project, should you decided to go that route.

      Is there a way to get both the limited editons for PC and Dreamcast?
      I would love to get them both and add to my collection that allready has Posterity Edition, Reprint and OST.

      Creator Jeff on November 6, 2012

      Awesome update!
      I love that you guys go the extra mile and include the option as an in-game quest. Little touches like that make WaterMelon one of my favourite devs!

      Thanks for the tip, we'll look into it!

      Creator John Stewart on November 6, 2012

      You should think about adding the soundtrack to Bandcamp, even if you make it exclusive to the people who back the project on Kickstarter, because then you could offer lossless download options, rather than just lossy MP3 files.
