We are listening and we will be happy to pursue these goals as soon as we reach our initial funding goal of 139k. Help us reach this goal and then we will happily put together stretch goals like: PS3, Wii U, Android, and a Japanese translation!

      For now we'll only have the guidebook in print, but we will consider this as a potential option for the future - thanks for your feedback and continued support!

      @WaterMelon Co.
      Is there a possibility for a digital guide book? I don't have the money to burn on the fancy physical one and even if I did, my kids would probably find it and trash it.

    3. Federico on

      @WaterMelon Co.
      Sorry if my answer comes late. Many kickstarter projects offer specific "piece of rewards" for some extra dollars. Like i'm pledging 10$, then if i increase the amount of another 10$ i could, for example, receive the digital soundtrack, or the pdf of the walkthrough. Usually the developers send a survey after the campaign ends, so of course it's a lot of extra work...still sometimes it can really increase the funding level. Maybe an english native speaker can explain it better, sorry. Can't wait to see your stretch goals! Good luck!

    4. TheChosenOne on

      Packages? ;o The really high priced ones?

      And a guidebook with art is nice but it will always be mainly a guidebook.

    5. WaterMelon Co. Creator on

      @TheChoosenOne: Haha, then it means you didn't see our packages hehe! Hope you'll be surprised.
      @Federico: Hoh, what do you mean by "add-ons?". Sorry, for asking.

    6. TheChosenOne on

      Nothing beats a proper artbook though. If you really want to make something special (and a bit more costy ofc) make a making off/art book. May have said something about it here already... can't keep track. ;o

    7. Federico on

      You could add psvita to the possible goals, there are many game similar to PS there (inherited from psp).
      Also, why don't you consider some add-ons? they are quite fit for people who would want something but not an entire pledge package. However i'm sure you'll reach the goal in 4-5 days max!

    8. WaterMelon Co. Creator on

      @Andrew Bellwood: PC/LINUX/MAC or DC (EUR/JP/USA) yeah.
      @TheChosenOne: It could be but you'll see that every guide/goodies that comes with Pier Solar contain a bit of artbook content. All toguether forms an artbook. But we could take it in consideration if there are high demand. See you!

    9. Andrew Bellwood on

      When you say "collector's edition of your choice" you mean Linux or Dreamcast correct? Or are there other collector ediitions available that I'm unaware of?

    10. TheChosenOne on

      I wouldnt mind an artbook for this game like many other KS have done.

      Maybe a not so unique version of the bethi one. it will only be at a ~$100 or slightly up tier but it certainly will be picked up more then twice.

    11. WaterMelon Co. Creator on

      Apologies for lack of clarification - we mean any pledge at or above $250 receives a collectors edition of your choice AND the limited, numbered poster!

    12. Corpselocker on

      I wouldn't have read this update if it hadn't shouted, "EVERYONE READ".

    13. Sam J on

      *updates to 151$ ?

    14. Sam J on

      I pledged for the DC collector (125$) so if I update my pledge I'll receive 2 DC collector edition and a poster?

    15. Damon English

      So if I increase my pledge to $151 I get a poster?
