The email came days after the last update on the official website, stating even further progress had been made with the Beta testers of their upcoming game. The team is now currently looking for testers who are fluent in other languages the Sega Megadrive game is hoping to support.
But more interestingly, in the latest news article, the team can now proudly say that Pier Solar has official sold out. There are no more vacancies for pre-orders, however should all customers be happy and their cartridges are functioning correctly, the warranty copies they are holding back will be put up for sale.
Here is the latest update from their website:
Hello friends of Pier Solar,
Another great month of lots of progress has passed! Thanks to our last call for testers, a lot of helpful people heeded it and managed to pass through our hard approval demands to join us. More effective, versatile and dedicated than ever, the testers have in just a few weeks found a lot of new bugs and helped refining the game. Our programmers have fixed most bugs reported thus far, and the last focus is to tune the difficulty to make it "just right" (which is a very hard process, since everyone has a different opinion on it).
A tremendous effort of translation input has also been done, and as of now all the other languages are now in the game. Some of our testers are testing them, but we still welcome more applicants for this task (can't ask for more testers enough times!). If you are native to any of the languages featured in Pier Solar (German, French, Spanish, Japanese and Brazilian Portoguese) and want to help out testing and proofreading the in-game texts, please contact Fonzie via PM on the forum.
Also, with the last Japanese copy having been fetched this last month, Pier Solar is now completely SOLD OUT! We are holding some additional copies for warranty purposes. When all pre-ordered copies are shipped and received, these additional copies will be unleashed. More news on this will only come at that time.
Thank you for your continued patience and support!

Hopefully we will have more news shortly or even a photograph of a physical copy once the next update arrives!
