Kickstarter page possibly getting an overhaul or additions?

Postby Shenhua-Nani? » Tue Jun 23, 2015 8:43 am

So, i tweeted to Cedric Biscay this morning out of desperation for the current state of that terrible Kickstarter page, and here's the reply:

I feel a bit better now that they will discuss it, but they need to act fast, i've had enough of Awesomely Crap Japan!!! :sad:

This guy is very nice and replies more times than not, don't spam him guys :D

You would think this is the sort of thing they would have discussed in the months leading up to the announcement.

Yeah, I think this kickstarter has a bit of that--not sure if this translates--"whistling into war" mentality going on.

So, a bit of refactoring might do it some good.

I wish they would of been better prepared for all this. The Kickstarter campaign suffers because of it. But like I've said before, when all is said and done, I am totally confident that Yu Suzuki will be able to make the Shenmue 3 he wants to make without having to hold back!

I tweeted him about wanting to donate 10,000 but there are no dinner spaces left. I don't know how to use twitter but I decided to give it a shot and he replied. I'm hoping some good news comes of this!

Good news, even though it really should have been updated two days ago. Hope they finally get some really nice higher priced tiers
Hey guys,
I am currently looking for an artist for an upcoming project. it's a decently long product with a lot of art assets. I am looking for a bit of a unique style. You will of course be paid and I am hoping the style can be similar to anime or american comics such as Greg Capullo or Jim Lee.

It would help if you are good in gothic, blood, facial expressions and action posses as well as the idea of having some joke items thrown in as well

Please contact me at - [email protected] if interested.

I can see them adding more rewards in the final week. Who knows, maybe they didn't think it would get this big this fast and are rushing to come up with new reward tiers. I'm looking forward to whatever the $1000 one is. Here's shooting for a replica forklift with better quality than that garbage SEGA all stars one.

That's great news Peter! I don't think they'd miss the opportunity of a guaranteed 10K for the sake of phoning back to change the table from a reservation for 4 to 5 :D

I want to think they are going to do things better.
For example they now made a twitter.
I think giving the 5mil stretch goal was a little premature, they should had more little stretches to keep people engaged. Maybe they just though 5mil would be done in a week or so (but thats what most succesful ks have done in the whole campaign).

I'm A lot more hopeful now at least.

Yep! Hoping if that is the case, I at least get a tip off when they are going to become available!
