200% funded :)

Shenmue III has smashed crowdfunding records only halfway through. Right now, it is the 11th most funded project on Kickstarter- the 3rd (Soon to be 2nd) most funded video game.

As a model, Kickstarter technically never guaranteed Shenmue III funding. I know we all dream of the 11 million experience and stretch goals to get the game, but today I wanted to take stock of our success, because I think going over 200% of the initial asking amount is a milestone worth celebrating.

A friend of mine today pledged $100 even though he's never played Shenmue.
Another friend has so far pledged around $150 total, again never having played it.
I'm so thrilled.
Never underestimate those around you. These two wonderful friends could have donated just a measly $5 each when I asked them to pledge. They went above and beyond considering the circumstances.
Maybe because I have never stopped harping on about it since the KS was announced, but most likely they know how dearly I hold this franchise to my heart.
