I think we can agree most Shenmue fans have already pledged. The people you need to go after are few and far between. The ones I can think that would be intertested are: People who back stuff on Kickstarter often, people who like similar games and people who like Shenmue but have no idea what's out until it's on the store shelf. You only need to get about 500-700 people extra a day to double what it's currently getting. Each day should focus on enticing one group of people. People will need to tweet and facebook message people. If enough people do it then the numbers reached will go up quickly:

24 Days to go: Inform 5-10 Youtubers or streamers about Shenmue and try to get them to let’s play and promote the $30 on the 3rd. People like Pewdiepie and the GameGrumps. Message them on Twitter and comment on their videos that you want to see Shenmue content.

23 Days to go:
Type:
‘backed toejam and earl until:2015-03-28’
Into twitter and then click live. You will have a tweet from everyone that backed this game on Kickstarter. Write messages to them and inform them of the SIII Kickstarter. They’ve shown they’re willing to donate to niche games and must be old school SEGA fans. Go anywhere this game is being discussed by backers and preach.

22 Days to go:
Same as yesterday but on your twitter search type:
‘backed dreamfall chapters until:2013-03-11’
This is a adventure game many compared to Shenmue. Write to these people this should be a game that appeals to them. Also go to forums based on Dreamfalls and spread the word.

21 Days to go:
Today:
‘backed mighty no until:2013-10-02’
Write to these people and get them on Shenmue 3’s side.

20 Days to go:
Twitter:
‘backed yooka-laylee until:2015-06-14’
Same again.

19 Days to go:
Twitter search:
‘backed bloodstained until:2015-06-13’
There are 60,000 backers here to contact.

18 Days to go:
Go to the Shenmue Facebook. 20,000 people like Shenmue on Facebook and may be people who don’t check gaming sites every day or ever. Go to the list of people who like Shenmue, message them and inform them of the Kickstarter.

17 Days to go:
29,000 people like the Dreamcast on Facebook. Message these people and let them know about the Kickstarter.

16 Days to go:
45,000 people like Yakuza on Facebook. People always compare the games so this could peak their interest. Go through the list and message random people letting them know about the Kickstarter.

Eh. There's plenty of former members of this community who haven't logged in or shown any sign of return, yet. They may not even know about it (and you really wouldn't unless you keep up with game news particularly).

these youtubers (with reasonable size following) are already huge fans, so its more likely that they will agree to participate in promoting an event. we must make sure that we direct them well and harness their power on one unified event or goal. $30 on the 3rd would be a good choice initially maybe.

I've been trying to get that stickied but I'm not sure who to ask. And if they open PayPal it's something we can continue doing month after month.

What about public places like 9gag ??

They are seen by lots of people and a lot of people can vote there !

Penny Arcade made a comic about Shenmue lll - that will hopefully generate extra attention:

Yet another article spreading the usual falsities around (I was on the fence of not going to this site again but breaking the camel's back and all that).

i still think its a great idea to have Yu Suzuki do a commentary over a some shenmue 1+2 gameplay, where he talks about the games production. it doesn't have to be live, it can be edited together with subtitles.

also i mentioned this before, but it would be nice if they released a high quality version of the Shenmue Premier video, to show the ambition of the game, and Yu Suzuki's inspiration.
