Re: Pier Solar HD

No problem Alunissage.:) I already said what was needed when it comes to game info and responded correctly to all the hate despite what some people are insinuating. The rest is pointless. You can lock the topic if you want.:)

Re: Pier Solar HD

I accept criticism when it's not mixed with provocative words. It's not very important anyway. About the 8 bits story for the super nes, it was a joke by Fonzie, the game main creator. He's a sega fanboy so he wanted to put that. I'm not the decision maker for this kind of things. I know the super f...

Re: Pier Solar HD

To lunar raptor: I'm not the game designer but the artist who handled the characters and cutscene artworks as well as the opening animation. So I'm not directly involved with the gameplay decisions. If you think this game is terrible, you must not have played some more obscure rpgs back then like Hy...

Re: Pier Solar HD

No need to hurry.:) The future DC version and the digital versions (via update) will also have a 3 min opening animation I directed/animated.
The animation parts found in the trailer are excerpts from the opening.

Re: Release times goodness, and a new time gap begins...

Thanks.:) Actually, I'm a profesional animator/storyboarder. I had handled the original pier solar character design and cutscene around 2008. But the amount of work gone in the creation of the portraits and op animation was much more intensive in the remake. It will also be available as an collector...

You should check out Pier Solar HD that will be soon available on the modern platforms. It was created and available back then in 2010 on the MD/MCD as a tribute to the Lunar series. You can check out in the general gaming thread. I was in charge of the character design/ cutscenes and op animation y...

Re: Pier Solar HD

Back then in 2001... Yeah that was me. :) If I'm not mistaken it was done in a couple of days (2/3?) because there wasn't a lot of time left according to WD. In fact, it's the letter from WD which took several weeks to arrive as they didn't find another way to contact me.

Pier Solar HD

Hi, Pier Solar was the last original RPG that appeared on the MD/MCD in 2010. It was created by an indie group known as Watermelon. http://www.magicalgamefactory.com/ PS is very reminiscent of the Lunar games as well as Grandia and Secret of Mana so I thought people who visit LunarNet could be inter...

Re: The Music of LUNAR: Genesis

Alright, I uploaded the music. The original package also contained the sound effects heard ingame which were found in the soundtest, but I thought it wasn't necessary to put them here. I captured, enhanced and encoded the music with soundforge choosing a high bit rate (320 Kbps). So the sound is ver...

Re: The Music of LUNAR: Genesis

That's right. :) The game in itself was pretty bad and shouldn't have been called Lunar, but the artworks and musics were great nonetheless.

Re: The Music of LUNAR: Genesis

I suppose it's due to bandwidth problems. :)
Some songs are better than others. So it's not really a problem anyway , I guess.

Re: The Music of LUNAR: Genesis

Hi, :)

If I'm not mistaken, I had sent to GhaleonOne (uploaded to his ftp) the soundtrack in high quality mp3 format around june 2008. It was complete with the songs titles and such.

The composers names :

Masaaki Homma
Junzo Yagami
Yoshiaki Kubodera
Yoshifumi Iwata
