Stretch Goals: Wii U, the Directors Cut, Android & OUYA, Japanese Translation, Dreamcast Extras

Posted by WaterMelon Co. (Creator)

Hey everyone,

We put together a quick, funny video for you guys so we could express our thanks in person and talk about our stretch goals too :) We also have another exclusive and never-before-seen screenshot from Pier Solar HD below. It's a particularly beautiful one. But first, the details on our stretch goals!

145k - Japanese Translation: Pier Solar HD now translated in Japanese, on every single platform!

150k - Dreamcast Extras: 16x9 Widescreen support, VMU integration, VGA support: We are sweetening up the Dreamcast version with everything we can think of! VGA will look stunning, and with 16x9 support it will be the perfect match. We aren't leaving out anything and thats why your VMU will be integrated with Pier Solar!

160k - Pier Solar HD Directors Cut: We are going to add in tons of stuff we left out of the final version of Pier Solar due to technical limitations on the original SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis cartridge. We're talking tons of new sidequests, mini games, and never-before-heard songs!

  • 10+ new sidequests!

  • 4+ new minigames with 2-4 player action!

  • New battle features!

175k - Pier Solar HD for Android & OUYA: Pier Solar HD for Android devices and the OUYA!

200k - Pier Solar HD for Wii U: Pier Solar HD for the Nintendo Wii U! 

Thanks everyone for your continued support!

- WM Team

      I can't imagine playing this game on a phone

    2. Matthew W on

      Just heard about this and was excited to donate not only because I love classic RPGs, but I would LOVE to see this on Android, especially with controller support (not just on the Ouya).

      Cool to see Android in the stretch goals. Will be exciting to see how well Pier Solar does on the platform.

    4. Michael Luenzer on

      Nice, the Dreamcast extras are for the Directors Cut.

    5. WaterMelon Co. Creator on

      @Nathan Wolfe We've got to reach the goal first before we can offer it :)

      @Mark Cerqueira check the FAQ at the bottom of the Kickstarter page for details on how to pledge for multiple items at once

    6. Mark Cerqueira on

      Any chance we can get a bundle with a physical copy of the game ($49 level) with a digital version of the OST? Seems like you could get a lot of people up from $49 who don't want to go all the way to $90 to get a physical version of the OST. :)

      Fonzie looks pretty tired!
      hehe that's a good sign: he's working his ass off! :)

      Right now I am back $140 125 for the collectors edition and 15 for the xbox version. If the WiiU stretch goal is made will I be able to get it for that instead of the xbox 360?

    9. FlamingFirewire on

      @WaterMelon Co. Awesome news, I still hope that you can get the Genesis music into all the HD versions. I'm sure alot of us would really appreciate it even if there were a warning or something in the menu that if you try to use the Genesis music it might cause slowdown.

    10. Hollow_Tears on

      Sorry for the double post, What i ment to say is the home page instead of the first update post.

    11. Hollow_Tears on

      Is the Directors Cut content going to be added on top of the extra content that was mentioned in the first update post. I was thinking will there be some dating sim elements for the main character Hoston to choose from, In the form of side quest's or other added content.

    12. WaterMelon Co. Creator on

      @Ian Clarke check the FAQ at the bottom of the Kickstarter page for details on how to pledge for multiple items at once. Otherwise, you can add any amount of funds above and beyond to your pre-existing pledge to offer any support you'd like!

      I wanted to add that I agree with almost everyone on this board that the directors cut would be a great first stretch goal since it benefits everyone. Most younger japanese gamers learned English in school. I do like the idea of a Japanese translation so no gamers their are left out. I would love to see Piers Solar become a global hit.

      You guys rock! I have not felt this excited about a game since FFVII. I was wondering how can we re-pledge? I want to change my pledge so you at least get to add in the directors cut content. Also a Wii U version would be amazing.

      Edzo04 on

      a wii u version to play directly on the gamepad would be fantastic. im also considering switching to the limited edition dc version. its just so tempting

    16. Brian Gomes on

      That moustache is like a push broom on steroids

      @FlamingFirewire > The music might have few tracks recorded live in studio. No promises, else it will be the CD soundtrack. It might be available in its original 16bit version in all versions of the game but again it's a lot of CPU processing to emulate the high quality FM sampling rate so it's still under discussion.

    18. Mr. C on

      Seriously thinking of switching my pledge to the DC Collector's Edition, now.

    19. Mathias Schiefner on

      i want both Soundtrack version too

      and SegaCD music should be considered as the Main Music for the HD version ^^ (but switchable)
      (SD with SCD,SD with MD M, HD with SCD, HD with MD M) ^^

      MD=Mega Drive/Genesis

    20. FlamingFirewire on

      So will it include the option for the Genesis music, Sega CD music, or HD music (if the SEGACD soundtrack is not considered High Definition), or will we be stuck with only one option? I would love to hear some Genesis tunes in these versions.

      If you only want the Wii U version, how do you pledge for it? I can't see the option.

    24. closedsocket on

      I demand to know what the fonz almost spoiled! :p hey we forgot to tell them... Cut the tape! I feel like the directors cut should have been the first goal because it makes the game more enjoyable for everyone' hope we get it!

    25. Chris Skuller

      Aside from the Directors Cut, I'm really not interested in any of them. :-( But I am glad that Pier Solar reached it's goal. I'm SO excited about this game right now.

    26. Freezy on

      The only ones I care about are the Director's Cut and the Android / Ooya Version stretch goals. Japanese Translation, Dreamcast extras, and a Wii U edition isn't very interesting ton me personally.

    27. Paul Marzagalli on

      Would LOVE to play this on the Wii U!

    28. WaterMelon Co. Creator on

      @Jack Clough Yep, you'll be able to play it on your old school TV perfectly

      @logan449 take a look at the pledges on the right hand side (we've got 21!) and if you want to support the stretch goals you can consider upgrading your pledge! Thanks for your feedback and support!

      @Dean Alex Taylor VGA will be up for sure, accidentally added it in the update (cannot edit now) when it is already going to be a feature for the Dreamcast version, don't worry!

      Thanks again everyone!

      If the $150,000 stretch goal is reached and 16:9 support is included, would the game still have an option for 4:3 aspect ratio? I haven't got a fancy television as I have all my consoles hooked up to an old CRT set.

    30. logan449 on

      I do not understand why you do not add any additional content depending on the amount reached. How to increase its interest to have put the same game on different media??

    31. kenshin_sp on

      Its gonna be awesome!

      " Same to Tim Stevenson "

    33. Aaron Markworth on

      You should make the Pier Solar Guide Book an add-on to the lower pledge levels. A larger print run can't be that much more expensive and you can ask maybe $15 extra for a copy of the book added on top of the original pledges.

    34. michael hubert on

      we can make it to atleast 150k guys lets keep up the pledge's.

      Tim Stevenson on

      Parabens Tulio and team! My suggestion is to add some $5 -$10 extras for people who have already pledged. I'm sure many people (including myself) would happily chip in a little more without having to make a big jump up to the next pledge level. It would really give you a nice boost in these final days. Congrats again!

    36. Riplue on

      Android & OUYA, COME ON :) Would be awesome to be able to sync your savegames across the platforms, too. Looking forward to the game very much!
