Steam reviews usually trend towards the negative at launch, no matter how good the game is. With that said, the averages tend to level out over the following months and usually swing towards a permanent very positive rating. So I'm not too worried about how Shenmue 3 will be received on Steam, good word of mouth over the long term will have more impact than a few antsy reviews by people who played the game for 10 minutes before seeking a refund.

I think this "100GB!" and "Broadband connection" shit will probably blow over either before, or when the game is actually out.

100GB is an approximation and will likely change, and the connection bit is probably just a way of saying "hey dummy, you need better internet than 56k to download this". Anybody screaming about Denuvo should probably go and take a look at other games Deep Silver has published on Steam. Out of all their released and upcoming titles, couldn't find a single one with Denuvo and I doubt they'll start with Shenmue III.

So in addition to backing the campaign for a PS4 copy, I also did the slacker backer option to get another copy on PC. However, I only got one survey. Did anyone else do something similar and get only one survey? I'm trying to figure out if there is any confusion and me not getting the second copy. I tried emailing them also, but no response yet...

You can either wait for the second one to arrive, or you can whack your email address onto this page to get it sent right away.

About that, I need some help regarding the message.

- Is this the survey where we need to specify the message? (i didn't receive the email yet)
- What languages are allowed for the message?
- 140 characters includes spaces and punctuation, right?
- If there's any problem with our message, will they warn us? When?

- Who should i contact to ask these questions, Deep Silver or Awesome Japan?

The message I want to leave in the guestbook is something for my 8 month old daughter to eventually find if she ever plays the game (my guess is I will have to show her, but oh well). Still trying to find the right words to fit in there

Exactly. I just wish every little morsel of information coming out about this wouldn't produce a torrent of erroneous (and seemingly inevitably negative) response in the gaming media. But then, hyperbole generates clicks, and I know that's why they do it. Oh well, I completed my survey and it feels darn good.

Got mine! I'm really hoping they do something to allow us to back at a higher tier than $250 max. I was really wanting to give a little more now that I'm in a better position to do so than I was before.

1. Yes, it is the survey where you provide the guestbook message.
2. They don't require specific languages, but require you to use languages that conform to a 4 letter acronym that I don't remember. I took it as meaning they accept foreign characters, but there's a limit to what they accept. The survey warns that some languages with non-latin characters may be transliterated into English characters.
3. Correct, it works just like Twitter did in 2015 before they increased their limit. Punctuation and whitespace counts towards the limit. I actually used Twitter's character counter to type mine.
4. They provide a few guidelines, basically from what I recall anything that's a proper noun is off limits. No mentions of companies or specific people.

Questions go to Awesome Japan / the kickstarter people and contact them via Kickstarter or the Shenmue 3 website.


As to what you should write, we briefly discussed this in the Survey Info #0 thread. Nobody's going to follow the same theme, so don't worry about it. In my case, I wanted to have some kind of nice quote. I ended up saying something motivational regarding my own experience in life, which is not directly related to the game but did fit well for being in the guestbook of a foreign place.

You can edit your survey until the deadline.

Thank you so much for your reply.

About the specific people part, by mentioning just the first name do you think there will be any trouble? Something like "John, this is your friend Paul..."

If they don't allow that I'm screwed

Edit. I just remembered I went with the "dice dude" tier. How does that one work? Need to send a pic? Can I use my name for the dice?

Do you know from which country the Kickstarter bonuses are shiped? Deep Silver is the publisher so perhaps they will be shipped from Europe?

Pretty sure that Deep Silver has nothing to do with fulfilling the kickstarter bonuses. They are publishing the game. Fangamer are the ones dealing with the kickstarter merchandise and they are based in Tucson, Arizona:

"Fangamer is a small videogame merchandise company based in—and shipping from—Tucson, Arizona."
