I’ve never purchased a video game sound track before but I did not hesitate when it came to the Pier Solar Original Sound track (OST).
About a year ago when I discovered that an entirely new game had been created for the Mega Drive/Genesis on December 24, 2008 I was completly shocked and excited. I was too late to buy Pier Solar directly from the WaterMelon Team but I worked hard (a.k.a. threw $100 at the problem) and bought my postarity edition of Pier Solar on ebay.
Had this game came out when the Genesis was current it would have been one of it’s tripple A titles. It’s that good. And when the WaterMelon Team released the less pretty reprint editin I bought the game again. It’s that good 🙂
Even now the Pier Solar hype has not died down for me. So much so that I wanted the OST to compliment my Peir Solor collection.
See how pretty it looks and sounds:
The Pier Solar OST is still available for sale from the WaterMelon Team and for anyone who has only the reprint edition of Pier Solar this OST will have extra value for you. It includes the enhanced sound track which when used in the Sega CD and in conjunction with the cart augments the games sound and music. I’ve read that this feature is a first for a Genesis/Mega Drive cartridge.
Yes, you can download the enhanced sound track and burn it to CD yourself but I’m really enjoying this very nicely polished version.
Here are a few additional details about the Pier Solar OST:
