Pretty awesome if you ask me. I think it's on a few more boards too.

Sorry about the double post but what if we used this as inspiration for bigger and better places to advertise the kickstarter?

I know this might sound crazy but what about a fund to put up a billboard somewhere?

If you have any more ideas lets brainstorm.

How about a billboard like this?

Wonder how quickly it could be put up.

I wonder how much a Google ad would cost for a banner ad. I can get my wife to make some graphics. She's a graphic designer for a magazine.

EDIT

Also, in future ads do you think we should include something like "Be a part of video game history" as a call-to-action? We need something to entice people who don't know what a Shamoo is.

That sounds like a great idea. Where else could we advertise though? It seems like most of the video gaming community knows about the kickstarter.

Maybe the fact that Sony isn't funding and that it needs $10 million? Anything to combat the misinformation out there would be good.

Amazing effort, thank you!

The only problem is that an ad can get people to visit the ks page, but then they see it is a fucking disaster and won't pledge. :(

maybe we could pay for some kind of advertising somewhere?
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.

Some may know about it, but others may not have heard. I think about my teenage nephews. I doubt they've ever heard of Shenmue. Now they're not going to spend money because they're high school drop-outs and just play video games all day(Don't get me started.....). But even when they were in school they were constantly on Youtube watching the personalities and on Steam playing games. We could target Google Ads to display for video game fans. We can put in a budget per day and Google charges us per click. So if we say $50/day at $1/click the ads will display until 50 people click them.

We also need to contact as many of the personalities (who aren't too big that they won't even see our messages) and see if they will mention Shenmue. People like Pewdiepie and Markiplier get too many messages to ever read them all, so you're never going to get through to them. But the smaller ones might put in a plug.

EDIT
You know a really good ad might say "Preorder you copy today!" Because then they could donate $29 and get the digital download reserved.

The YouTube ads would be a great start.

Right now Youtube is running a deal where you get $100 in ad credits if you spend $25. I may end up doing this. If a few of us in the Dojo do this and we all have the same ad we should really be able to help the kickstarter. Any takers?
