Shenmue III: FOR WUDE!

Postby Ziming » Wed Jul 15, 2015 1:56 pm

So as many of you may know by now, one of our community's greatest contributors Wude has been missing for a year. Due to the relatively high frequency of his activity, and in the face of the Shenmue III Kickstarter, this is clearly uncharacteristic of our fellow member, and many of us have come to fear the worst.

However, whether he is active or not, Wude remains one of the most well-revered and highly respected of us here at the Shenmue Dojo, becoming a pioneer in the modding community along with the likes of Master Kyodai and Dotsona, playing just as vital a role as LanDC had during the previous generation.

In his absence, myself and others have banded together to ensure his name is forever immortalised in the credits of Shenmue III, as there are few who are as deserving to receive such an honour. However, many of us feel that being lost amongst thousands of other names does not do him justice, and are therefore launching a last-minute minute campaign of our own to make sure that happens.

Out aim is to get Wude's name in the Choubu Inn guestbook, at a pricely $600.

We enter this campaign at the $100 mark, meaning we need another $500 to snare the SHENMUE GUESTBOOK reward tier. All finances are being handled by site administrator Yama and YouTube channel manager Ziming via the Shenmue Dojo's PayPal account.

All you have to do is donate to the Dojo the usual way using PayPal and include your username and the message "FOR WUDE!".

"But why should I pay money for a guy I don't even know?" I hear you ask... Well, simple really. This is a campaign for Shenmue III's Kickstarter, and what would a KS campaign be without reward tiers?

Please note that all Reward Tiers are subject to hitting the relevant Reward Tiers for the Shenmue III Kickstarter Campaign. In the event of reaching a higher Shenmue III KS Reward Tier, extra rewards shall be held by the Dojo staff and used for future competitions.

Some of Wude's work can be found on his now inactive blog:

Again, all you have to do is donate to the Dojo via PayPal and leave the message "FOR WUDE!" along with your username.

I just sent a $100 donation for Wude, I was going to add an extra $100 to the KS anyway so this seems like a great way to do it!

A wonderful way to immortalise one of the most magnanimous members to have ever been part of the community.

I only donated a little, but will donate more tomorrow when I have a bit more funds at my disposal. Wude is a legend of our community.

EDIT: Doh, forgot to put "FOR WUDE!" Nevermind, will do that on my next pledge.

I also forgot to add the message, but I don't even remember seeing an option for that.

I clicked Add Member Name, and put it there, but this is great. Genuinely hope the guy is okay though, and there's a reason for the year absense.

After entering the amount, but before sending the payment, click on the "Add Shenmue Dojo username if applicable" notification (outlined in red in the picture below). A drop down box will appear where you can type in your username/"FOR WUDE!".

Donated $5. I really wish I could have donated more but sadly I'm not able to at this time. I really hope that we can get his name in the game. I wasn't really around when he was most active, but I've seen some of his posts in older threads. It seems he always had a positive attitude and was always willing to help the community out. He definitely deserves this. Kudos to those who organised it.

Just donated $20. I paid through my mobile. So didn't have 'add Shenmue dojo name' option but I was able to add a note so put in there...

Hopefully that's ok Ziming/Yama- great idea.

Do any of you know his real name? I think that would be much better than just having his Dojo nickname in there.

Yeah we know his real name. We'll be adding in "wude" between his first and last name.

"Shenmue II reveals the true scope that the series encompasses and how this story is still just beginning. If it continues to be composed of ambitious, engrossing and entertaining titles like Shenmue II, Yu Suzuki's legacy may be best remembered for the Shenmue series."

I'm sure your search has been exhaustive, but has there really been no luck finding him on social media or even trying to get ahold of a relative in the area he lives?

Really sad that people can just disappear without a trace in this type of community. I hope he turns up.
