i'm pissed that i apparently didn't go for it

$100

They really hit all the notes

Suzuki is on another level

These Kickstarter projects are usually such a disaster and this was going that direction, but I knew he’d hold it together

Sent you a pm, chairkicker

No promises. A code I found in the wild. I already gave mine away. They’re out there.

Demo needs to just be released to the public. I’m really encouraged by all the positivity I’m seeing.

I want to wait to get the full experience but those screenshots of drawers fill me with joy. The drawers are really what blew me away the first time I played the original game.

It's going to be fascinating to see how fresh eyes take to Shenmue 3 once it's finally released, as it's a seriously strange game, with pacing and production that feels totally alien to modern sensibilities. For fans, though, it's sure to be mana, and it's heartening that not only have the development team held onto that strangeness but that they've managed to stay faithful to the density of detail that made the original Shenmue games so beloved. This is digital tourism at its finest, and it suggests that Shenmue 3 can be the follow-up Yu Suzuki's majestic series deserves.

I’m doing awesome. The game I’ve waited 18 years for is somehow going to be awesome, against all odds.

That’s a pretty fair video

Definitely not a graphics powerhouse but what they accomplished on a limited budget, as far as we can see, is pretty amazing.

John Linneman over at DF is a known ‘Mue Head, so everything he says comes from a place of love. I was mostly posting that vid because it’s the most convincing argument for this game I’ve seen yet.

Not sure if I should dive right in or try to finish the remasters before III

Finally showing the bigger city:



Btw... if you backed the Kickstarter check your email. They said they’re getting ready to ship and need address confirmation ASAP.
