Homebrew RPG Pier Solar and the Great Architects HD remake heads to Kickstarter

Developer WaterMelon Inc. is seeking to remake its turn-based role-playing game Pier Solar and the Great Architects in high-definition for Xbox 360, PC, Mac, Linux and Sega Dreamcast, according to the project's recently-launched Kickstarter page.

WaterMelon is asking for $139,000 to re-render the community-created "homebrew" RPG, originally published for the Sega Mega Drive in Dec. 2010. The game centers around three friends searching for a magical herb to cure the protagonist's ailing father, but the journey turns perilous as they begin to discover secrets about his father's past.

WaterMelon plans to use the funds to remake all the game's assets in HD, pay licensing fees, and for miscellaneous development and production costs as well as beta testing on all platforms.

"Working directly with fans is an idea that is intertwined at the very core of what WaterMelon is," reads the game's Kickstarter page. "Our origins and history as a company have been uniquely connected with our fans. Today, we are more connected with them than ever."
