By using this recipe on Internet mash-up site IFTTT, you can now tweet automatically EVERY month on the 3rd by signing up just ONCE.

phpBB [video]


Mad props to Giorgio for discovering the idea.

The current plan is to still keep Thunderclap going each month as well, because it has some advantages of its own, but this new IFTTT method is a great way to maintain those casual supporters who might otherwise participate once or twice before drifting away.

And just like Thunderclap, there's a widget to embed on websites. You can find snippets of HTML to copy-and-paste here.

Really impressive! Good to see a few familiar faces in that too, respect to everyone who took part. I always feel ashamed that I'm too shy to chip in to this kinda thing. Maybe one day

Now that has made my day. :)

Well done Shenmue Community.

This news has also been posted on neogaf, which means thousands will see it, over 11,000 by the time i write this message.

Hopefully we can gain some more supporters for the campaign.

Im actually surprised by the negative response that most gaffers have given. For a forum that is suppose to be number 1 for gaming, they really are not up to date with what SONY are trying to do with third party companies.

Then again, after reading the thread, I can see that many people are burnt out and have no hope left, which is understandable given the last 12-13 year wait.

As far as im concerned, the more exposure shenmue gets, the better. Roll one march.

I haven't seen the NeoGAF thread. They had a recent one that was very positive towards Shenmue, so I'm guessing it's just the campaigning and Sony element that they haven't taken to. It's a shame, but on forums like that (and this one sometimes) it only takes one or two snarky comments for everyone else to jump on the bandwagon and write something or someone off.

But like I always used to say to mue 26 when he was tackling (with aplomb) such attitudes across the Internet for the sake of the campaign, if one person reading that thread decides to join the next Tweetathon, having not waded into the debate on the forum itself, then it was a worthwhile effort. I think there'll be GAF'ers enthused by that collage whether they choose to express these opposing views to their fellow forumites or not. All that really matters is what they do on the 3rd, not what they say on there today.

So I think most of us are probably finding it quite surreal to see our faces on Kotaku:

It's so damn great to see them acknowledge the fan support like that. Keeping Shenmue strong in the news with something like that is just the best thing!

Well said sweaty.

Shenmue fans are indeed insane. We've been trapped in a cave for the past 13 years. Let us the fuck out.

Well done everyone.

Let's keep up the pace (I wonder who says that?) :)

Whoa, this is fantastic! Another milestone (or two) in our campaign. That collage in genius because it's so endearing. Great move on whoever it was that thought up that idea.
