Realistically, $3.5mil. Personally, $5mil. Optimistically, $8mil.

It'll probably slow down to a crawl soon. Can't imagine many backers just randomly coming across it from tomorrow onwards.

Wow You set it pretty high =) but anything is possible at this point. It still feels like a dream. Realistically, I will go with $8 million, and I'm already really pushing it as Bloodstained reached about $5.5 mil (I believe the Castlevania fanbase is larger than Shenmue's). But given our hardcore dedication $8 million is very possible. Definitely not complaining if it manage to surpass $10 mil.

$3.5 mil won't be much of a problem as I believe the extended areas are enticing enough to warrant the stretch goal of $4 mil from the general public.

We have 30 more days...
$5-8 mil is I think realistic enough imo.

I have just witnessed a jump off 100.000 $ in 8 minutes so I will go with 45.000.000 $. Realistically 12 Mil.
You are wholly complete and your success in life will be in direct proportion to your ability to accept this truth about you.

Also, I should be working right now...

I know a few people on here will be giving a portion of their weekly/monthly paycheck for this kickstarter and the project will be heavily backed today so I think it would be a very safe bet to say we'll break the $4mil goal.

I could honestly see it reaching between 7-9 million bucks.

Bloodstained's goal was 500,000$ and it a few hours to reach that goal.
Shenmue III reached 1 million within an hour.
Shenmue III is the fastest gaming kickstarter EVER to reach 2 million.
And the second fastest kickstarter ever to reach 1 million in any category.

So, 10 million dollars.
