"Pier Solar and the Great Architects" is an independent RPG developed by the new group, "WaterMelon Development", that commemorates the 20th anniversary of the Genesis / Mega Drive (1988-2008) released in December of 2010. This is a standard game sample showing almost 30 minutes of raw, assorted footage, as well as provide an in-depth look at the game comprised of over 30 additional minutes w/ spoken dialogue and annotations (which functions as our first video review). It ends with in-game credits and a breakdown of my assessment of the game. There's no real showing off with this one, though we can show more pictures of the packaging and such if necessary or answer additional questions. A video of the FB&E is also being posted. This video contains some spoilers. Window may need to be expanded to read final notes.

EDIT: Oh geez... it seems YT has bugged another video of mine, as it shouldn't start several minutes in... it took weeks for this to go away in my "Master of Monsters: DoG" video. Just pause the vid and start from the beginning if this happens to you. The original video looks better before YT conversion. Annotations don't seem to work right now either; they weren't needed, but added to the overall experience. Way to go YT.

Addendum: I should point out that there are more than two optional dungeons, but that I consider the Ice Caves and Urg to be the two primary extra dungeons, as they are the last major dungeons in the game that you can go through before you move on, where you can no longer go back and do them, so I'd say they are end-game dungeons, which is different than a side-quest. I will put it in annotations later when I skim through to find where inserting it would be relevant.

Addendum 2: There is now a kickstarter page for Pier Solar. The name of the game is Pier Solar HD (An update of sorts to the original Pier Solar). Anyway, the link is:
