Shenmue Chat / Notebook!
« on: September 08, 2014, 12:28:23 AM »
You'll notice a new Notebook item in the main menu at the top of the page, between Profile and My Messages. Clicking this will pop up your own personal notebook to store any scribblings you might need to remember, just like Ryo in the game.

What had seemed like a simple thing to install ended up requiring a stupendous number of changes to the database and website files, so we hope it proves useful and worthwhile!

Shenmue Chat / Vote for the kitten's name!
« on: September 06, 2014, 10:51:58 PM »
What's in a name?

Just as the whole community is jointly responsible for looking after the orphaned kitten, so too is everyone responsible for choosing her name.

Please vote for one of the options above, and feel free to change your vote at any time. The most popular name at any moment will be displayed on the kitten's page and above her cardboard box on the front page.

In the event of a draw, the name will default to "Kitten".

Choose wisely!

Some of you are encountering problems signing up to the site, unable to move past the registration screen. This only seems to be affecting a minority but for some reason it is persistant for those unfortunate people.

We appreciate the support of everyone who makes the decision to sign up, and we want to assure you that we have your email addresses and will let you know as soon as the problem has been resolved.

Thank you for your patience and please do participate in the Tweetathon today on Twitter with the hashtag #SaveShenmue!

Campaign News / Welcome to!

When considering how to expand, we didn't ask the question, "What if Shenmue had a website?" It already has several, and they've done a great job. Instead, we asked ourselves, "What if Shenmue WAS a website?" brings the Shenmue experience to a web-based community, simulating a host of the game's most memorable features in a fully engaging, interactive package. Collect and trade capsule toys, shop at the Tomato Convenience Store to feed the neighborhood kitten, and earn move scrolls to master by spreading word of the campaign. Will you find a winning can? Or how about a game of Lucky Hit?

Inspired by the creative approach of Yu Suzuki himself to electronic entertainment, we have sought to combine the best of modern technologies with outside-the-box thinking to produce something truly unique and unmistakeably Shenmue, through and through. And we invite you to explore every nook and cranny for tips and surprises, just as you would in the game.

Joining the site with your Twitter account is effortless, and allows you the option to automatically participate in every #SaveShenmue Tweetathon without needing to remember, just like third-party tools we've used in the past. is now a comprehensive resource for all campaign activities, affording us greater efficiency and total freedom in how we operate.

In these early stages of the site going live, you will see features being integrated over time. We hope you'll get a kick out of what's in place from day one, but rest assured more is on the way. We're excited about representing the world and spirit of Shenmue in new and abstract ways, and we think you're going to be amused and enthused by what lies ahead.

We'd like to extend a big thanks to those who have helped us get this far in development, including David Brown of Mooncalf Studios for the AutoTweet coding, Ramón Guzmán of Blade Art Studio for the main logo, Dreamcasters' Tube for the HD video clips, and Shenmue Stare, Giorgio Sotiro and mue26 for their enduring support. Thanks also to Lisle Wilkerson for her generosity in offering prizes to promote the launch with a contest during this month's Tweetathon. And of course thanks to our many fellow Shenmue fans for being patient with us while silent delays became almost a parody of Shenmue III's own indefinite limbo.

But unlike Sega, we take our promises seriously. So here it is.
