I have no idea how this hasn't blasted through Steam's greenlight, Pier Solar HD is a fantastic looking true 16-bit RPG and it will come to Linux in Q2 of this year!

When I say a true 16-bit RPG I mean it, it was actually released on the Sega Megadrive (Genesis to you yanks) more than 10 years after the last Megadrive release!

The developers claim it has over 50 hours of game-play with tons of locations to explore and NPC's to chat to.

The game is not a port, but an expanded version of the home-brew Megadrive game, it looks flipping fantastic too!

Please, give them a vote on Steam's greenlight.

About
Being a turn-based RPG with state-of-the-art aesthetics, Pier Solar is a story-based RPG about the journey of three young heroes from the town of Reja. In this prospered and peaceful town there live three best friends: Hoston, Alina and Edessot. Young and curious, they want to go on a herb-seeking quest to help cure Hoston's father's mysterious illness. Little do they know ... it will be the beginning of their lifetime journey where they will learn the true meaning of friendship and the thrill of adventure.

This journey will demand their courage and wisdom to solve a long-lost mystery while they face the forces of destruction dispatched by an evil man who is trying to change the world for his own good. Through this escapade, they will be reborn as great heroes to protect the universe from a mistaken purpose..

To be honest. I have never seen it on Greenlight so far Oo

Maybe Linux support has been added later, I am always using Linux only filter and checking the most recent ones.

That's pretty neat.
Though I probably would prefer them bundling the original game with a Mega Drive emulator instead of doing a remake.

Does it at least contain a YM2612 emulator for the music? I'm a sucker for those synth ICs...

Hah how silly of me to miss that.

I expect it to hit the greenlight mark for the next group then.
