A game about waiting for Shenmue III

Postby Messiah » Sat Nov 30, 2013 8:22 am

Hello everybody,

I had a crazy idea last night:

We create a small video game about waiting for Shenmue III. It's a meta game about all of us in shenmuedojo and the rest who have been holding on to a sliver of hope about Shenmue III.

Now you're probably wondering "who will want to play this, except maybe a few of us?". Well, the point of the game isn't to sell millions, it'd be free! The point is to raise awareness that SEGA is so slow/reluctant at making Shenmue III that fans have made a game about waiting for Shenmue III.

This wouldn't be a big game, it doesn't even have to be good, it's very existence should be worth the trouble it takes to build it. I also think it would be fun.

If we can get a large team working on small tasks it shouldn't take too long if it is well organised. We can use a silly RPG maker or something, it can even be text-adventure based! We can storyboard it starting from the first moment Shenmue II is completed and we all ponder about the next iteration of Shenmue all the way up to today's Shenmue III registration hoax and the Shenmue Tweetathon.

Share your thoughts and maybe suggest some things for the timeline. Once we have a bunch of exciting events that took place (including that silly Shenmue III hoax that shenmuedojo put in, like, 2004 lol) then we can map out a narrative to link these events.

It's weird to have spent a decade waiting for Shenmue III with you guys and I think it's an experience worth sharing, what do you think?

That's an interesting idea. What if it was like one of those tycoon games or like Football Manager. A Shenmue campaign simulator.

Fantastic idea.

The game will be a FREE (that's Full Reactive Eyes Entertainment for you short-term-memory-only guys) game set in a bedroom. Pixel Art visuals. You walk back and forth, gazing at your pc sometimes to check for Shenmue III news on the internet. Besides that, you interact with half a dozen items spread throughout the room to kill time while you're waiting, namely you pick your Ps4 controller to play a mini-game of shorts (maybe a shmup?) and you pick one of the several porno mags laying on the floor to jerk off adding around half a hour to your score. If you turn off the pc, open the door of your bedroom and head outside it's game over, you lost all hope for Shenmue III.

Haha, I like the idea of it being set in a bedroom. Pixel Art visuals with a little dreamcast in the corner. This would make it easier on the game artists! Being able to pick up objects in the room in a Shenmue-esque manner might be cool too.

It would be nice to have a small window and a clock that shows the passing of time, i.e seasons etc.
