Water Melon Team sneak another Pier Solar update out

piersolar2Once again the Water Melon Team have been stealthier than Solid Snake, releasing another quiet update on their Homebrew Sega Megadrive game, Pier Solar. Supposedly progressing well, Pier Solar is looking like a release this year is going to be very likely, pleasing the Sega fans worldwide.

Here is the latest, short but sweet, update from the team:

Date: 12/03/2010


Things are progressing...!

We are now done with the map checking and have moved on to the monster calibrations.

Tulio is scripting the sidequests. In my opinion, a great RPG can lack them, but a fantastic RPG needs them.

A lot of bugs have also been fixed, but don't worry, we'll save some for the final beta testing ;).

Until next time!

Don't hold your breath just yet, the term 'release date' is not something they like to discuss. So get comfy and look forward to the next update!

Well, I only pre-ordered it six months ago, so not getting as antsy as others may be...

Either way, a WHOLE NEW GAME seems like a very fun prospect. Excitement levels are up, slightly.
