Cool, so what's that, around 300K raised post-Kickstarter? That's great!

Yeah, that's a pretty great figure for post-Kickstarter funding. I think most Slacker Backer campaigns top out at around $200,000, so we're definitely doing pretty well. Shenmue continues to break records and trends in crowdfunding even now.

EDIT: This isn't counting Star Citizen's massive post-KS success, which made their money selling digital goods to very hungry, high paying consumers. That's a beast of its own.

Quite excited about the backer numbers going up. Hoping we can keep going until we beat Double Fine Adventure at 87,000+, then shoot for the moon at 100,000!

Hello guys, I'm new to the forum (I've been a lurker for ages). Could someone make a graphic showing the projections for the future of the Paypal campaign? Just to have an idea of what stretch goals we might achieve.

Hi Vitoner,

The graph below shows the Slacker Backer state as of today, 15th of April 2016.

I made a quick calculation:
With 10 new backers per day pledgind 60$ each, it will take 666.66 days to reach $7,000,000...

In other words, we will NEVER reach the next stretch goal unless something BIG happens before the release of Shenmue 3 :-o

There's still potential for something to spur a lot of interest, so I wouldn't be too worried about never hitting $7 million. I feel as the game starts becoming more tangible and the presentation becomes increasingly professional, people who ignored the project or were against it will start coming on board.

A really good run of updates and increased awareness of the project could significantly help the slacker backer campaign.

Thank you. I think we'll get a significant boost if and when SEGA finally decides to re-release Shenmue 1/2 and when Suzuki-san and his team will share more info and game footage with the world.

I have also backed Bloodstained by Koji Igarashi and I have to say not only they have handled the kickstarter much better, but the communication with the backers after the fundraising closed is spot on. We have an official backers' forum (made by fans while the KS was still ongoing) and the developers are showing progress and asking for feedback regularly, like once per month. Fan feedback resulted in a shift on the art style for the better, or at least that's the perception we got.
I trust Yu Suzuki, the man is a genious, and I'm sure Shenmue 3 is going to be amazing, but they clearly don't have any clue about how to raise more money. Do you guys know if Awesome Japan is handling the paypal campaign too?

I don't know, maybe I'm just jaded. Maybe it's too early on in the development to share anything more than what they've already showed (still, those low-res images from magic monaco... why low-res?), but again, Bloodstained is showing even the early stages of development and it's payng off in terms of trust. And we all know trust in Shenmue 3 is a major issue because of all the bad press the project got.

Just my two cents. I'd like to hear your opinion.

No offense to anyone, but you have to be extremely delusional to think that we could reach 7 millions....come back to reality :)

Apparently they've had it on good authority that it's never going to reach 7 million, and so they don't want to appear delusional.

I see two possible reasons why there hasn't been any update in one week.

1. The pledges are actually slow (less than ~$545 per day) and "we" struggle to reach $6,600,000. AJ waits for the milestone to be passed before updating.

2. Since we can expect a Kickstarter update by the end of the month, AJ/YsNet wants to update both at the same time because the $6,600,000 now includes a new stretch goal (Chinese subtitles for example). That's only my personal hypothesis of course... after all, it's AJ we are talking about :mrgreen:

I think you've got it right, Kiske. Either way, we'll hopefully see next week.
