PSHD Update Part 1: a bunch of updates you won't want to miss!
Hi Everyone.

It's been a super busy month, trying to wrap up everything and and lined up for release, here are a bunch of news and interesting stuff.


We're starting the submission process for PSHD. Valve already approved it for release on Steam so that's done and done. We may contact some of you who subscribed to beta test to test the game on Steam using a beta key. Stay tuned. Microsoft already evaluated Pier Solar as well but we failed some internal requirements on the certification and we're correcting them for the next submission. This also impacts Wii U and PlayStation(s) submissions since we want to send it as clean as possible so that we don't get another failed certification. Luckily, the process doesn't take as long as we thought, so the perspectives to getting a release date gets better. As soon as we're certified on all platforms we'll announce the date and put it on the street. We're also submitting PSHD for PEGI, which is slightly more complex than ESRB, but required for a release in Europe. We're expecting a rating of PEGI 7. One last thing, we're working to get a publisher to release PSHD in Japan. Due CERO regulations it's only possible to release a game if a studio has an established working office in Japan and we don't have it. So once we get it we're secure to release in Japan, this, hopefully could also lead to having a publisher for 360. Fingers crossed.

Director's Cut

It has been quite a complex journey to implement all improvements to Pier Solar from the MD/Genesis version to the HD version, but I'm also happy to declare them complete and ready to roll. So here's a list of all the things that are new and exclusive to PSHD:

Extended story and new side quests.

Pier Solar HD added 16 pages of text to the original story. But what does that translate into?

- There are new places to explore, with new bosses and new chests to open.
- Some loose ends got tied. Why is Alina the only elf? Why are our heroes the chosen ones? Why Zelini and Alina don't get along? Find out all about it on PSHD.
- New ending. In addition to the original Pier Solar ending, a new ending is possible. Maybe a secret ending too? What? Humm. ;-)
- New sidequests. Why was that boss at the watermelon farm so rude to the characters on Pier Solar for MD/Genesis? Because he was grumpy that his sidequest was stripped out the game. But now he is happy, his sidequest is back with a vengea... I mean, great reward at the end. How about another sidequest that could possibly trigger a secret ending? Huh? What? Err... Ha!

Lossa Tools
 You can see the area map at the top right...

Edessot's robot pet is finally fulfilling his role as it was planned but stripped out of the original game. Lossa tools are available now with some cool functions such as area map, warp capabilities and auto-save, explained below because...[continues on the next post].
