Retro Reborn: Pier Solar HD Trailer


Watermelon’s 2010 Genesis RPG Pier Solar and the Great Architects was a fantastic addition to Sega’s ancient 16-bit console. The game was a beautiful labor of love to RPG gamers who grew up in the good old days where Sega and Nintendo dominated every playground discussion, and fans from either camp lined up eagerly to defend their shiny box of choice. Unfortunately for those who don’t still have one of Sega’s 25 year old consoles tucked neatly into their entertainment center, you probably missed out on one of the finest, retro-inspired role playing games in recent memory.

Lucky for you, the successfully funded Pier Solar HD Kickstarter has made it so even owners of Sony and Microsoft’s new-fangled consoles are able to enjoy the game in dolled-up form when the game lands on the Wii U, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Playstation 4,  Android, Ouya, Mac, PC, and Linux platforms in April. Additionally, if you’d still prefer to have a pseudo-retro experience with this gem of an adventure, a Dreamcast version is also slated to make its way to the Watermelon Store.

For now, take a look at this sexed-up port of the best 2010 adventure that nobody played below.
