Pier Solar SG Research
Hi guys how you´re doing? Hope well I´m kenshin_sp one of the Pier Solar HD devs and guide dev, so after the guide was released we´re thinking about the next books with WM and I keep thinking about a lot of things sitting here drinking in my Bethina´s mug...

You know people complain a lot about the Pier Solar dungeons difficult and even Tim our beloved friend who wrote the guide said a few times that some dungeons (that of course, some were made by Fonzie, dam´you fella) are very difficult to beat, we discuss a lot about it when choosing carefully what put in the guide and what not back on those days, and I remember very clearly to say to the guide team that I want every map of the game to be present in the guide!!! And yes thats a lot of pages (about 446 to be exactly and a dozen of maps in it) and as an experience considering that I was the map compiler of the guide and resource master, I decided to make this entry to break the ice choosing in my opinion what is the most difficult maps in the game to me, so yes this will work as a laboratory for our future works (yes yes some surprises hum?[:/]) so to me as a player they are as follow:

- Definitely the huge Verahansha City, OMG in the guide you have a full map of it with every store and every item location it takes a lot of time and a few white hair on Ben to put it at reasonably state on the guide and to me to make a very detailed guide to every item presented in this place, its one of my favorite places in all the game and definitely the most difficult to do (Fonzie youre a crazy guy)


- Ludon Basement, OMG I hate that light blinking in the HD edition it make my nerves !!!!


- Bethina´s Castle, yes I confess I hate the slippery floors more than anyone and this castle is really a maze without a map and a guide and many prayers to keep yourself alive facing dozens of mad enemies holding weapons!!! Did I said that I´ve beat the slippery god thing and it took me years to get the emblem at the site??? Yes yes life is not fair and I had a trauma since!!!


So guys as a little research now!!! Whats is the most difficult maps to you??? I´ll take note of every opinion and consider this research for the next guides to come (and yes we´re plaining a lot of things here on the land of watermelons[:O]) and who here have played the game using the guide??? What you think about it, did it help you??? Did you like the overall quality of the guide??? Have suggestions for the future works on [:WM]???

Did you think that the trophy things are difficult or easy??? (yes I´ve made every trophy for the HD edition and we have a cool trophy section in the guide). [:murto]

So see ya in the next posts (and yes bet I´ll come back here more often with some posts and news about WM next projects!!!)

All the best to you all folks!

I just received this guide. The work done on the content and the workmanship is just crazy. that's wonderful.

Thanks Edd, theres a couple of mugs that got designed by the evil genius mind of Ben Boyd, perhaps if we ask to Fonzie WM can produce something...
EddHaddon , 07/10/2016 - 14:50
I would love one of those Pier Solar mugs! Also excellent work on the insanely good guide. Its not only imformative but a piece of art on my shelf!

I just want to give a big thank you to Fonzie and the rest of the WM crew. Words can not describe how excited I am to win. I am enthusiastic to see what's in store. :)

ProjectY, Status and Contest!
So much updates within a few days!
[:wm] is on blue drug!
Status of the game!

The game programming is halted since august 2016 and hopefully resume shortly and is mostly related to gameplay tweaks now.

In the meant time, graphical improvements to the game never stopped as nothing is too good for the ultimate beat them all!


Few of the changes/additions:

- One level (a jazz restaurant) was entirely re-done for a club.

- (Previously) another level got also re-done to accommodate more gameplay variety and surely a lot more fun.

- Levels felling a bit short were expended in length.

- We added one new boss and one new enemy to ensure great variety of bosses across the numerous levels.

- We added a new weapon for one enemy, surely refreshing/unseen before for a beat them all!

- Animations and gameplay are fine-tuned down to 16ms precision.

- New intro and outro artworks!


- Numerous additional artworks for goodies, posters and surprises!

- Added Fonzie as the big boss of the game because he said "it's my game, fuck the story"*.

The contest!

Some noted that previous small in-board contests didn't see any winners picked! That's because nobody won! Fonzie was heard to say "You all sux!"*.

So this is time for a real contest! Add captions to the teasing PY gif! May it be angry, funny, sarcastic "or just lame"*!
We will pick the best and the winner gets a signed copy of the game**!

- Go this link: 

- In the "Enter Giphy link or Image URL", copy and paste this link: 

- Then type in your caption text, save and copy the link of your new gif.

- Post the link as a comment on Facebook, here:  

Everyone doing the above gets some extra points but you can also post the caption text as text-only in the comments section at the bottom of this very blog post! You can also do both, that would rox! [:captain]

Contest ends the 28th of September!

Good luck to everyone, stay tuned for more news, next round is for PN, probably Monday, will also be messages posted in the boards soon.

*: It is unclear what was really said. Nobody can't tell for sure.
**: When it releases!

Sold Out?!
Huge success! But is the limited edition really sold out?!
A big thank you for the support, the limited edition of the game went out of stock on WM's Magical Game Factory in less than 6 hours!

Two important notes:

1. For anyone willing to get that edition, you still have a chance to do so. While we are sold out at the WM's Magical Game Factory, some shops around the world still have copies. We will provide you with a list of retailers that has the game in stock very shortly.


2. To fulfil the crave for clamshell-boxed games, we are pleased to announce that [:wm] and Studio Vetea conjointly decided to produce a regular black-boxed edition of the game. It will be available around January and it can be pre-ordered in advance.


For anyone already having ordered the game and willing pick another edition instead, please contact the costumer support (although it is the weekend, we will answer messages from Monday).

Thanks for your understanding and support!
Long live Papi!

oops, wrong post!
EddHaddon , 12/09/2016 - 12:20
I just bought the BITS version. Looks like it will be a fun little shooter. OOOOOOH PAPI!
zredgemz , 11/09/2016 - 04:52
I love the bits releases but i went with the LE for Papi, i am hyped for it came from the desert.
raithos , 10/09/2016 - 23:55
I already bought the LE but I am very glad to hear this. I know people pass on the BITS release because of folded case art. This will give them something to buy. Also bring new Vetea and WM fans. Plus TWO Fonzie posts in two days! Things are looking up!
NanoBabe , 10/09/2016 - 21:46
Super News will the list be added to this blog? Should of made more Fonzie :P
Fonzie , 09/09/2016
Papi Commando!
We are proud to present Papi Commando, a game by Studio Vetea, published by [:wm] for the MegaDrive / SEGA Genesis!

The game is available now in BITS Raw (bare cartridge) and an incredible BITS Limited (boxed) edition!

Feel free to comment on the boards and spread the news around!


For PY/PN news, stay tuned, some will come today!
XeroShinobi , 10/09/2016 - 02:30
The game looks interesting enough to warrant a purchase, but I don't collect vintage games without boxes and manuals, so I'm definitely not buying homebrew without them. No more "limited" editions (boxes should be standard), no purchase from me. Unfortunate.
_Vetea_ , 09/09/2016 - 22:53
Hey ! Thanks for your comments ! I hope your received your copies soon and enjoy this game. Cheers !
LordRenzo , 09/09/2016 - 15:29
Ordered the game, thanks WM.
acdc , 09/09/2016 - 15:23
Friday back at home read this and order the limitid edition well 50 euro s i could spend it on a blowjob but i hope this was a better investment and more joy with it
nihilblack , 09/09/2016 - 14:03
Ordered my limited edition. Can't wait to play it, this looks rad! Also, the packaging looks gorgeous, as is usual with WM. Keep up the 16-bit love!!!
