Here is a description of the event taken from the event page which can be found here: http://teamyu.net/Shenmue.III?action=qte :

This one-off Quick Timed Event brings a new twist to the successful #SaveShenmue campaign, seeking to make your followers sit up, take notice, and actually pledge for a game they had no interest in before. Our mission here is to educate and inspire, and with your help we can achieve both on a grand scale.

This Wednesday, please return to this page (http://teamyu.net/Shenmue.III?action=qte) at the following time in your location, for a globally synchronized launch of the #SaveShenmue QTE. You can join in at any time thereafter, but keep this in mind: the first 10 participants, plus 4 random others, will be entered into a raffle for a special prize to be announced very soon.

San Francisco = 8:00 AM
Chicago = 10:00 AM
Kingston = 10:00 AM
New York = 11:00 AM
Toronto = 11:00 AM
Rio de Janeiro = 12:00 PM (noon/midday)
Reykjavik = 3:00 PM
London = 4:00 PM
Paris = 5:00 PM
Berlin = 5:00 PM
Prague = 5:00 PM
Vienna = 5:00 PM
Rome = 5:00 PM
Cape Town = 5:00 PM
Moscow = 6:00 PM
Singapore = 11:00 PM
Perth = 11:00 PM
Tokyo = 12:00 AM (midnight/Thursday morning)
Sydney = 1:00 AM (Thursday morning)

We promise that once you get here, it will all be VERY simple and easy to follow - just a few clicks - and the outcome very effective. It will be over in seconds, but you will need to be registered here on the site for it to work, so to avoid even the slightest delay you may want to take care of that now if you haven't already.’


When I asked James from Team Yu for more details about the event he responded with the following:

The exact format of the QTE is being kept deliberately vague until that countdown reaches zero. What kind of QTE would it be if you were told in advance what to do? This is a test of your reactions under pressure. ;) Don't worry though, being new to Twitter shouldn't place you at any disadvantage, as it will all be done from that page with simple, clear instructions.


Should be fun. :D

Please post if you are participating.

don't forget people that if you are participating in this event to sign up to Teams Yu's website well in advance to save the hassle tomorrow. it actually only takes a few minutes, so allow for that.

you sign up by pressing the 'sign in with twitter' at the top of the screen. everything is fairly straight forward from there. you might as well activate the auto-tweet option while your at it!

Team Yu just announced the prizes for the event;
link - https://www.facebook.com/TeamYu/posts/1 ... 54/?_rdr=p

With the Shenmue III Kickstarter (bit.ly/saveshenmue) now raising over $4.8 million in pledges and well on its way to the next stretch goal, it's time to reveal the prize for this Wednesday's ‪#‎SaveShenmue‬ Quick Timed Event.

If you're donating $100 or more to fund Shenmue III, you'll already be seeing your name in the credits of the game. But what if you could add your best friend at no extra cost? Or the family member that introduced you to Shenmue all those years ago? Your names would be together forever, immortalized in the most significant video game sequel of our lifetimes.

That's what you're able to win this Wednesday. Two #SaveShenmue campaigners have sacrified their place in the credits to reward one lucky winner with this rare opportunity.

The first ten participants in the QTE, plus four random others, will be entered into a drawing for the prize. Details on how to participate are at TeamYu.net/QTE

This week's efforts from the Shenmue fan community don't end there, however.

When you've completed the QTE, why not give the hashtag an extended push before the Kickstarter ends? It may not be the monthly Tweetathon, but some fans have have set up a Facebook event to encourage just that: facebook.com/events/468630789976775

And for the rest of the week, those behind the ‪#‎30onthe3rd‬ campaign again want you to dig deeper into your pockets for ‪#‎TheFinalBlow‬. No, not like that. Like this: 30onthe3rd.com/finalblow

Good luck in the QTE and to all of us in what we hope will be a week that sees Shenmue III become the most funded video game in Kickstarter history. Thank you for all your support!

yes a twitter account is required to participate in the event but if you don't want to use your personal one, you can set up a new one with a different email address.

I could never get the auto-tweet thing to work with my account.

I'll do my best to copy-paste!

yes, register and then you need to actually be on that precise page and go through some kind of a 'simulated QTE event', i'm guessing these 'few clicks' will initiate the tweet and log your entry for the prize.

afterwards the page will remain open for the rest of the campaign.
