Pier Solar is shipped

Hello friends!

After 6 years in the making, endless improvements and nameless efforts by all members of this project, it finally happened!

It wasn't without much sweat, days, nights and holidays spent. Countless discussions some arguments and for sure absolutely lots of passion that it was possible.

Many thanks to all people involved! And even more thanks to all customers who pre-ordered this game since 2 years ago, putting your faith on our team, I have not enough words to thank you.

Keep tuned on our website ( for news on this project. The game has shipped but the story has just begun.

Best regards,

Did someone say something about a release date?

Well as you may have seen over on our FaceBook page something is indeed stirring!

It seems Pier Solar won't have an "official" release date; instead it'll be left to one of you folk to shout up and spread the joyous news when you receive your copy in the post...

When will shipping actually start? This is still surrounded in mystery but it'll be soon I know that much!

I guess this new entry answers all the emails I keep receiving that ask "When is the release date?"

Ta Ta for Now!

A one off to get you in the mood

Hi Folks,
It's been some considerable time since I posted anything on the blog! As most of you will know by now the game has reached the Packing stage.

I just wanted to wet your appetite a bit and leak a PCM track that i've had on my computer for a while :-) I'm not even entirely sure this is the final mix... but hey it'll get you in the mood :D

Fonz will slap my wrists later no doubt ;-)
