Reprint Edition Of Pier Solar Made Available Once Again As WaterMelon Open The Magical Game Factory

Reprint-Edition-Of-Pier-Solar-Made-Available-Once-Again-As-WaterMelon-Open-The-Magical-Game-FactoryOne of the most frustrating elements to WaterMelon's Mega Drive homebrew release Pier Solar, was how quickly the game sold out. It wasn't long before the game began hitting triple figures on eBay, something which is about to all change. The reprint edition of Pier Solar has now been made available to buy once again.

Upon release in early 2011 Pier Solar was hit by a sheer wave of demand due to the controversial delay linked with the game. As many frustrated retro gamers requested refunds and believed the game would never see release, they were soon battling it out for the remaining copies once WaterMelon finally delivered. This in inevitably lead to a huge price increase on eBay, which soon made Pier Solar one of the more desirable Mega Drive games available.

While WaterMelon did release a reprint edition of the game several months later, it wasn't long before this version was met with a barrage of buyers and a quickly rising 'sold out' sign. Those who missed out for the second time however can enjoy yet another pressing of the reprint edition which has just been made available.

WaterMelon have constructed what they're dubbing the 'Magical Game Factory', which now hosts an online shop to hold their products and all the latest news regarding their developments. Also arriving alongside the reprint edition is the new arrival of the Pier Solar OST (Original Soundtrack) spanning four discs in a stunning collectible package.

Very tempted with that soundtrack. Hopefully many others will now be able to enjoy this game without paying eBay prices.

I bought the original re-release which didn't come with the soundtrack. I tried to download it off their site but the file simply would not burn for me. Thus Im snapping up this CD release. Haven't actually finished the game yet though ^_^
