'Lucky Hit' game on GameMAG.ru
« on: December 28, 2014, 08:55:39 PM »


Thanks to GameMAG.ru for their coverage of fan-made browser game Lucky Hit Challenge, which aims to promote the #SaveShenmue campaign.

The game's leaderboard system is presented as a virtual Kickstarter for Shenmue III, with players' scores treated as donations. We haven't mentioned the game until now because the template for tweets that players are encouraged to send does not make it clear that the Kickstarter isn't real, and we are always cautious of numbing the public to false Shenmue crowdfunding appeals in case an official fundraiser comes along in the future.

But the game is well-intentioned and fun, and has clearly succeeded in raising awareness of the campaign by way of a popular gaming outlet in Russian-speaking parts of the world. We love seeing tweets in different languages every 3rd of the month, demonstrating the global spread of the #SaveShenmue Tweetathon, and we hope this article helps that trend to continue.
