MGF is back
Change is in progress! Now packing our long awaited pre-orders and KICKSTARTER rewards!
Just a message to inform everyone (including the hundred of people frenetically refreshing the page for the last few days). The MGF is back online.

Because we have huge shipping task in progress at the moment and we want to ship as fast as possible our early supporters, none of the games are available for purchase until the 11th of November 2015.

 - If you have pre-ordered anything on the MGF, check your account or email, we will be shipping your pre-orders.

- If you have been supporting our Pier Solar HD KICKSTARTER, check also your email, we will be shipping your rewards after you provided us with your phone number

Thanks again for your patience!

Thank you so much team for all your hard work! Iknow producing a game for a system 15 years old is not easy and I appreciate you taking all the time to iron out the bugs to make sure we have a finished product! I never doubted you for a second and have waited patiently! Thank you! Can't wait to get.

Hi,Guys,from faraway Russia)) In summer I asked you on facebook about Android version of our favourite PierSolar! You told me,that :"beta testing is right now!" So,long time ago and still no news about release..... Can you please tell us why it is so problematic?

Come to me, chicken! :D

@redrum: please wait one day more, and then contact support. MGF's mailing system is taking a while to process all sendings. @Vetea: Peut-être bien, et je suis ravi de voir mon plan se dérouler sans accroc... ahah! :-)

Thank you
To each and every one of you, my biggest thanks for these amazing 10 years at WaterMelon. My time is ending here but I'm leaving the company in very capable hands.
Yesterday was my last day at WaterMelon!

It's been a great journey since 2004. WaterMelon gave me a world of experiences and emotions, it was a lot of blood, sweat and tears, a lot of wonderful people that I met and had the privilege of working with, and most of all, the fantastic products that I worked on and saw being released. All of that made me very proud.

But it's time to leave it behind and hope for better days ahead. I leave the company and now Fonzie it's the sole owner and boss of WaterMelon, with his unquestionably capable hands, I'm sure he can steer WaterMelon into a bright future with the amazing projects he's working for the MGF and the other secret projects as well.

Again, to each and every one of you my biggest thanks! You are what made this company possible! You rule!

Feel free to bring the discussion to the Q&A topic. MGF/boards/mgf-about_10/Q---A_12888/

I wish you all the best in your future endeavors Tulio. You helped to shape this community and started something wonderful here and for that I am very grateful. Thank You for all that you have done.

This is sad news to hear, but I wish you the best in whatever path you chose for yourself after WaterMelon. You must have your reasons for leaving, but you were the face of WM. Thanks for all your hardwork!
evilkinggumby , 09/07/2015 - 16:22
I said it in a thread in the forums and I'll say it again here: Best of luck with your new-found freedom and passions and if you do get involved with making a game (retro or otherwise) and start a Kickstarter, please let us know as I am all in to back you and help promote it to my friends.

Hi everyone, After a long wait the production samples are finally here. [:/]
Check out the video and watch the testing as it happened.

As usual if there are any questions you need answers to, feel free to sent us a message via the support page.

All the best!

Can anyone please give us an update on anything to do with Pier Solar for Dreamcast and/or the Strategy Guide?? Back in May was last update and it sounded as if we were only a month or two away from shipments but its been 4 months and not even a simple update??
kingxh , 12/08/2015 - 03:01
I already waiting my stratgy guide more than 1.5 years, when it will be shipped??????
noisyturtle , 25/07/2015 - 02:57
Any news on the strat guide release?
Travii , 07/07/2015 - 13:00
Has the Dreamcast edition shipped yet?
vash32 , 16/06/2015 - 02:06
I've just pre-order this great looking game for my beloved Dreamcast, it will never die thanks to people like you. As for using Dual Layer CD for more storage.. we don't have that but we do have 99min CDs that are almost 900mb in size. If you need more then 700mb, I'm sure your good to go.

In loving memory of Tim Maurer
It is with great sadness that we must inform you that Tim Maurer (Tim333), the author of the Pier Solar strategy guide at GameFaqs, whose work was paramount in the creation of our official guide, has passed away.

It is his families wishes that we inform everyone here in the Magical Game Factory of this very sad news. They wanted you all to know that he loved this community very much.

We'd like to express our sincere condolences to Tim's family and pass on our sentiments in this difficult time.

May Tim rest in peace.

Oh, christ. How did the bloke die? His guide on gamefaqs is really reliable for the HD version of the game. :(
winds , 13/04/2015 - 15:04
Wow. Very shocking and sad news. Although I didn't know him personally, I am affected by it just the same. R.I.P. my friend.

C'est toujours triste ce genre de nouvelle, surtout quand il s'agit d'un jeune. De quoi est mort cette personne ? Ma remarque peu paraître matérialiste, mais il n'aura même pas eu la chance de voir le Projet Y aboutir, lui qui semblait tant aimer la Megadrive et Pier Solar.
vegetafett , 27/03/2015 - 06:18
Sad day indeed. I wish his family all the best.

Tea Time @ WM - Episode 5
RARE & WIP footage of "ProjectY", Mega Drive / Genesis game in the making at WM's Magical Game Factory! [:O]
It's here! Over two years in the making the first footage of Project Y in action!

Please bear the technological gap that couldn't let us retranscript the fixed 60 frames per second framerate, as it shows - and as it is - on the Mega Drive / Genesis hardware. [:cotcot]
EddHaddon , 25/03/2015 - 11:37
I loved the video. Short but very sweet. Echoes of Streets of Rage drizzled with "Watermelon juice"! I am dead excited for this and I am pleased to be a part of it.
   victor0982 , 20/03/2015 - 16:10
! uma dúvida tecnica : seria possível aumentar a resolução do jogo convertendo o jogo para 32 bits? ( ok eu sei que o megadrive tem apenas 16 bits! porem ele suporta o sistema 32x ! se o sistema 32x já vier embutido dentro do cartucho , tudo em uma unica peça , isto não seria possível? )
tbp17 , 12/03/2015 - 19:22
Hope that the next Project Y video will be technically better & clean to show how really the quality of actual build of the game is. Maybe with the Next "Tea time" with Project N ^^
Gordman , 12/03/2015 - 14:12
I don´t like the whole IGN company, because they produce senseless stuff. They criticize even the most negligible things, making games more worse than they really are (even good games). There are way better companies out there.
tbp17 , 12/03/2015 - 12:32
IGN : very bad article about Project Y. Never again I hope to read words like this. Don't think it is a good thing for WM.
