First things first: happy new year everyone, hope you've had a great holiday. Now, onto the important stuff.

WaterMelon is back, stronger than ever. We have a lot of stuff going on, of which some will be explained in detail very soon!

First of all, we're introducing

:OTo start big, the REPRINT is back! Orders for the REPRINT edition of Pier Solar with English, German and French are now open and available for immediate shipping. We also opened preorders for the REPRINT edition of Pier Solar with English, Spanish and Portuguese, attending the high demand. 

Preorders are also open for the Pier Solar Definitive Original Soundtrack. It includes four discs, including the full Mega-CD/Sega CD soundtrack, a bonus CD with unused tracks and re-arranged tracks, as well as mp3s and VGM files. The fourth disc is nothing less than the Enhanced Soundtrack Disc which was included with the classic and posterity editions. That's right, now reprint buyers can get their official Enhanced Soundtrack Disc as well!

New reprint edition run on the way!

Yes, you read correctly. Another production run of the reprint edition of Pier Solar and the Great Architects is on the way. This time, we won't have pre-orders, so the game will ship ASAP after the game is paid for. We aim to start orders around October or November, but, as usual, nothing is certain at the moment. More news will follow soon!

PS. This is our 100th blog post. Woohoo! DS.

Martin shows hs new toy! The White Element Pier Solar Sega Nomad!!!

Dear you!

Perhaps you remember the contest we had a few months ago, which had a special custom made Sega Nomad as the prize? No? OK, whatever. Here, the winner Martin (who traveled all around the world showing off our game - see a previous blog entry) presents his precious:

As you can see, it looks totally awesome, all thanks to the brilliant mind of Fonzie, Pier Solar programmer and producer. But, that is not all. The screen is also replaced with a less battery sucking one by Tiido, Pier Solar sound programmer and hardware designer.

Soon, we have news.

Best regards,

The future of Pier Solar

Dear fans of Pier Solar,

Every day, we get emails from people who wishes to buy our game. We are very thankful and honoured for that! Previously, we had decided not to produce more copies of Pier Solar for various reasons. But not long ago, we were given an offer we can't refuse. So Pier Solar's reprint edition may be available again in the near future. However, nothing is certain. We'll let you know when there is more information to be had.

Best regards,

/The WaterMelon team

Pier Solar @ Retrospelsmässan


About 1½ week ago, was at Retrospelsmässan in Gothenburg, a retro game expo in Sweden. I met lots of nice people and sold perhaps the last seven copies of the reprint edition of Pier Solar. The day before, I also met Zable Fahr, the composer and character designer of our great game. I could go into great detail and rant, but right now I'm very tired and lazy, so it won't happen unless someone bugs me a lot about it.

Best wishes,
