Going through the trouble of either financially securing a working Megadrive or tracking one down is more than Pier Solar is worth. That is just wasted funds that could be used to feed your family.
I would just take my loss... if this game wasn't taking attention away from far, far better indie games. Eternal Daughter deserve this kind of attention. Guardian of Paradise deserves it. the white chamber (yes, all in lower case. That's just how the title is written) deserves an HD remaster and to be ported onto modern systems. 7Days, Alice Mare, Dreaming Mary, Eternally Us, Ib, Lisa: The First, Lisa: the Painful RPG, Mad Father, The Mirror Lied, The Longing Ribbon, the One Night trilogy, The Witch's House, Paranoiac, The Crooked Man, Mermaid Swamp, The Sandman, Wraith, Sainth, Middens, Which, OFF, Among the Sleep, Anna, Action 52 Owns (in which someone went through that mess game-by-game and fixed them all), the Deep Sleep trilogy, Master Reboot, the Ghost Suburb series, The Cat Lady Lifeless Planet, Claire, Year Walk, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, DreadOut, certain titles among the various Yume Nikki games, Kraven Manor, The Desolute Hospital, Knock Knock, Limbo, Lone Survivor, Neverending Nightmares, One Late Night, Outlast (and its DLC Whistleblower), and From Dust are all infinitely better indie games than Pier Solar.
Hell, I'd say that even Yahtzee's Chzo series is more deserving. Five Nights at Freddy's even (oh yeah, I went there! What?), too. Hell, there are even several Amnesia: The Dark Descent Custom Stories that were better than this. I even derived more joy from "I Wanna Be the Guy" and its Gaiden.
For over fifty bucks in this economy, it had BETTER be as good as two of the BEST Final Fantasy games!
Well you threw out an extensive list of indie games you consider more deserving of the attention. Are they for console games and to be played on emulators? If so, which ones? Are most to all of them PC games?
Pier Solar got all of that attention because of the platforms it was on. It's been released on a ridiculous amount of them, too. You can definitely compare it to FF4 in that regard.
