First Screenshots of Homebrew Mega Drive RPG Pier Solar's Upcoming HD Remake

Pier-Solar-HD-Remake-ScreenshotsIf Watermelon's recently surfacing screenshots of their in-development Mega Drive brawler Project Y were not enough to win you over, the latest captures from the 360, PC, Mac, Linux & Dreamcast remake of Pier Solar will surely captivate you. The homebrew Mega Drive RPG hit has gone from pixel perfect to HD ready, leaving us all anticipating its upcoming release.

If you're only just becoming aware of Pier Solar, homebrew heroes Watermelon Games released an incredible role playing adventure on the Sega Mega Drive back in 2010. After an overwhelming success and several sold out reprint editions, Watermelon headed to Kickstarter to help fund their next dream, a HD remake of this very title. Raising a massive $231,370 through crowdfunding, a total which exceed their initial $139,000 target, the talented team have been back in the studio updating the 16-bit hit.

Since the Kickstarter's completion, Watermelon have been rather tight lipped about their efforts until now where a recent blog post update discussing the game's strategy guide revealled several screenshots of the remake in action. Needless to say, very much like its Mega Drive original, Pier Solar HD looks fantastic and set to be a real treat for both retro and modern gamers later this March.
