A Winner is Martin!

Congratulations Martin and hello to the rest of you!

Martin Brunet traveled all over the world - from Paris, to San Francisco, to Honduras, to Australia, to London and many other places and back - just to display Pier Solar! He placed his sticker on his car, pined his poster at the window of a gameshop and - the "juicy" WM style part - made a Hoston sprite in the game Minecraft which he then printed out and placed at many different places. Among the many great submissions, those by Martin proved to bear the most dedication of all, and therefor the team has decided he is the winner of the Element White Pier Solar Sega Genesis Nomad. A big applause to all who participated in the competition, WaterMelon would like to thank you for that and wish you better luck next time!

Here are a few samples of Martin's submissions:

Next up: two podcast interviews!

Have a good time!

Pier Solar Sold Out... Again

Hi everyone! Once again, our amazing fans have gobbled up the remaining stock of Pier Solar. This was much sooner than we had originally anticipated. After careful consideration, it seems clear to us that our current production methods are not capable of satisfying demand for the game and we're assessing alternative solutions to getting Pier Solar into your hands as quickly as possible.

As a result, we won't be announcing a timeline for further availability until we've determined the best solution to the problem. Rest assured, Pier Solar will be available again in the near future. Keep checking the website or our forums for updates.

Once again, everyone at Watermelon would like to offer our sincerest thanks to everyone who has supported us this entire time. We look forward to keeping you entertained and delivering top notch gaming for your enjoyment. Keep checking in with us as we have some exciting developments planned and can't wait to share them with you.
