Watermelon Games Announce Additional Print Run For Sega Mega Drive Homebrew RPG 'Pier Solar and the Great Architects'

Pier-Solar-Reprint-Edition-Back-In-StockWhere homebrew retro games are concerned, Watermelon Games have set an incredibly high standard to follow, after releasing an incredibly deep and detailed adventure for the Mega Drive in 2010. Having sold out numerous times over following repeated reprint editions Pier Solar and the Great Architects is due to become available once more following the unexpected arrival of cartridges.

Although the game has since been released on a wide range of modern platforms, the 16-bit original is still by far the most in demand title. Arriving in an incredibly lush box with an authentic finish, both gamers and collectors alike have found themselves lusting for Pier Solar, especially those who missed the initial batch - and quite rightly so. The RPG features everything we know and love from the adventures of the 90s, allowing fans of Phantasy Star, Final Fantasy, and Dragon Quest to once again experience that new game feel.

Watermelon Games recently revealed on their blog that their latest batch of Pier Solar Reprint Editions had finally arrived and would soon be made available. Whilst the homebrew developers sort through existing orders and attend to existing pre-orders, those still looking to get hold of this game can place an order of $59 with their online shop and hope there are enough copied to go round.
