I doubt they'll be in charge of advertising when the game releases in 2017/2018. I'm assuming the game will be picked up by a large publisher by then, and those details will be sorted out. I think "42,027" backers and "$3,334,130" are pretty substantial numbers four days after a Kickstarter launched. Would things be even better if a more experienced company had taken over? Who knows? I'm only worried about the game living up to my immense expectations. This Kickstarter is just a small detail to me.

I understand where you're coming from, Himuro. You've been here much longer than I have and you clearly have a lot of passion for this series. Please don't take what I'm saying as an attack on you. I just worry negativity will sink what we've already achieved.

You have to admit that the kickstarter it's amateurish for a high profile game like shenmue.

I'll ask again, what the fuck is awesome japan ?? Like really, I don't know.

What I don't understand is why the company that is producing the rewards isn't also running the Kickstarter. Aren't they the same company that ran the Bloodstained Kickstarter?

To be honest, no. I have never partaken in a Kickstarter before so i have bar to level it against. Id hazard a guess that a lot of people on here and who are donating wont have either so in a way, you are encouraging them to jump on a bandwagon of negativity. You opinion is what it is, but i look at it from the point of view that we have a Shenmue III kickstarter in the first place, and after years of no news/"We'll see" comments, im taking it with 100% gratitude.

Peter, they have had 14 years to prepare for Shenmue III and this game is nowhere on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media platforms. It is coasting on good will of Shenmue fans.

This isn't a "bandwagon of negativity". This is being realistic. The game has been funded, but at the current trajectory, the game may bomb. Emphasis on may. They are doing an awful job here, and your "only positive thoughts" schtick isn't helping. It is not only unrealistic, it comes across as highly naive and boyish.

Let's be honest here, Peter. They are having an AMA on Reddit when most people are busy doing things or are asleep, and you're completely fine with it. They could offer poop in a box as a Tier Reward and you would be fine with it.

There's a difference between "negativity" and objectivity. Any and all criticisms thrown towards this Kickstarter campaign in this thread are all objective and factual.

Well I backed a couple of these, it's pretty amateurish. The kickstarter video is pretty damn bad, the coolest update yet (the video with the programmer) isn't even on the kickstarter. They reached the goal on record time and barely awknoledge it, one update was for giving thanks to another guy (and give a shout about his game), there are not enough tiers, etc. They couldn't even put the time right ! like, come on.

Bloodborne had social media "achievements", dreamfall had cool video updates about the game, concept art, broken age wasn't even a videogame, but the guys did let's plays, documentaries that were awesome. I even backed a game made by pretty much 1 guy and the updates were better than this.

It's pretty bad.

I'm not saying anything about negativity, look at my posts about the kickstarter and how it's developing moneywise. Just that the guys that should be doing it the most approchable possible are not doing a good job about it. It's criticism to improve, not to destroy.

PS. the gratitude should be to Yu Suzuki, the guys that are actually running the kickstarter are getting paid to do a mediocre job.

It's nowhere on Facebook, Twitter, etc, because it doesn't have a large fanbase. Fuck, you guys are downers. There are a few things that I wish the Kickstarter guys were doing differently, but you just have to put faith in the people who were chosen. You have to put faith because there is literally nothing else you can do. Share it as much as you can, like it as much as possible on facebook, leave comments on articles. That's the power that we have. Lets do that and stop bitching.

So it's 5.30am in the UK? Who cares? It's a Saturday so it's not like anyone needs to be up for work so just drag your carcasses out of your pit early. And if they do it's tough isn't it. As long as we have someone from the Dojo who is willing to ask all these questions then I don't really see what the big deal is here. People are creating drama out of nothing.
