Pier Solar HD hits funding goal on Kickstarter photo



2010's homebrew Sega Genesis RPG Pier Solar was one of those projects that was fun to watch from the sidelines, but I never got to actually play it myself. That's what was great about development team WaterMelon turning to Kickstarter for a revamped take on the game due out on more easily accessible platforms (Xbox 360, PC, Mac, Linux, and ... Sega Dreamcast).

With six days left to go, Pier Solar HD has surpassed its funding goal of $139,000 and its first stretch goal of $145,000, which will result in a Japanese translation for all versions. Additional goals are focused on extras for the Dreamcast release like widescreen support and VMU integration; a director's cut of the game; Android and OUYA support; and perhaps most exciting of all, a Wii U version of Pier Solar HD. Yes, please.

When the Kickstarter was first launched, I was worried that even with passionate fans, there wouldn't be enough support to hit the not unsubstantial funding milestone. However, some 2,000 of you pitched in, making this a success. Funny how these things work out.
