Kickstarted: "Largest RPG ever made" Pier Solar meets his $230K, Being Developed For Wii U And Ouya

Watermelon Corp. have taken to calling Pier Solar and the Great Architects, their retro-inspired role-playing game and the subject of a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign, "the biggest 16-bit RPG ever made."

The game -- about a young botanist on a quest to find the rare herbs to cure his father's mysterious illness -- fared well enough on the Genesis to prompt Pier Solar HD, a remake for Xbox Live Arcade, PC, Mac, Linux, and the Sega Dreamcast. Watermelon's Kickstarter promised a rich overhaul of the entire game with touched up sprites and HD backgrounds, made available on a wide range of platforms. The original pitched asked for $139,000 to cover development and licensing costs, beta testing, and production.
