I second this. Languishing @ 6M still feels like we're just 1/2 way there.

7M is close enough to 10 that I could live with that.

$6.6 million aint' so bad. If $10 million was Yu Suzuki's pie-in-the-sky dream amount for Kickstarter funds, I don't think we've compromised too hard.

That said, a special anniversary $30 on the 3rd would be nice. We'd need to reach out beyond the Shenmue fanbase though.

The only thing is Yu Suzuki had planned stretch goals ???? way beyond 10M... can you imagine what they would have been? I could cry thinking about it.

Once the PC version is available in the Paypal campaign it will be a good opportunity to get more PC gamers into the series.

I wouldn't worry about it. They had to plan for larger amounts, because they had no idea how high or low the campaign could have earned.

Yu has said over and over that the game would be appropriately adjusted to the budget, as with any project. Shenmue III is still Shenmue III, we're not getting an incomplete game or a half-measure.

While it's always nice to see the tally growing, nobody owes it to anybody to keep adding more and more of their own cash. If you want to make repeated donations/purchases then that's great, but don't feel bad for stopping for any reason whatsoever. If you've already made a contribution of any kind then you can take pride in helping to make Shenmue III a better game, and whatever extra you throw in is a bonus.

Agreed with the above.

I'm on the $1,200 tier and haven't contributed again since. I'm waiting on the PC version on Slacker Backer Site, plus, I've been at University and not working since last Autumn. I would have liked to have gone for a higher tier during the Kickstarter, but I was saving for an expensive camera I needed for work/University.

Now that I'm working again, I'm going to start saving some cash for a Ryo jacket replica ($2,400) and contribute that way.

Eh, Shenmue 3 is the game with whom we will rise from the grave, Shenmue 4 will be the game where Yu will be able to realize his full vision. For a series dead for more than a decade we couldn't have asked for more than that.

This is also true. While I'm sure they're doing everything possible to make Shenmue III a great and impressive experience, the sequel (and hopefully the sequel after that) will be where the dreams will be realised.

Of course, Shenmue III still needs to be a success on its own terms for that to happen.

Few amounts of 'new' backers but, wow, they're still damn generous.

Just threw in another $120. Since there is no upgrade option, and I don't think there ever will be, I wonder if I will see my name in the credits multiple times, because technically I have earned the right to. Or maybe they will let me choose freely what names I want in there. I'd like to put in some names of friends or family members, if it's possible.

I can afford to continuously throw money at the game from time to time at the moment and I've waited for this all my life and I think every Dollar helps, which is why I'm doing what I'm doing. I'm grateful I have the ability to throw in a lttle money occasionally and help making the game better for everyone, but I'm still really unhappy whith how this slacker backer campaign is being run.

I think adding the PC version could easily bring us another $100,000 and it just seems so odd to me not to add it. If you're gonna release the game on two platforms, why would you exclude one of your platforms from the slacker backer campaign?

I can see that there would be technical or legal issues preventing them from using the Paypal campaign to upgrade Kickstarter pledges but what's preventing them from including the PC version on Paypal? I can't wrap my head around it and frankly, it's a bit disappointing, they haven't even given people any explanation for that.

Thank you Hyo for your contributions.

I am thinking about getting a t-shirt and contributing with another 30$ but I am waiting for some announcement (maybe the PC version) that gives the numbers a little bump so I can also contribute to that. Hopefully if the sales bump is big enough it will get the major gaming sites talking about shenmue again.

You'll get to choose the names in the same way you choose T-shirt sizes, etc: when they send out the surveys closer to release. They don't just take your name from your payment details and use that.

Thanks for letting me know. Sounds great. :) I'll definitely put in some family members' and/or friends' names there.

Yeah, I know what you mean. If we want to hit the 7 million mark, I think something big, like the PC version or the upgrades will have to happen. I think we can still make the 7 million happen.
