The Campaign going forward
« on: June 18, 2015, 11:16:26 PM »

I'm sure the powers at be here have plans for what we are going to do every 3rd of the month, but I think going forward its obvious we still need to get the word out - after all we are a long way from our true goal! Yes the campaign met its target in 8 hours :D fantastic, but lets not beat around the bush here - the $2 Million is only for a bare bones Shenmue III, to get a Shenmue Experience we all want and are used to... its all about getting more money...


Obviously we only have one more 3rd of the month before the campaign ends, so I think we still need an massive auto tweet... this time highlighting the importance of more funding. This is really important as I dont think people quite understand the importance of hitting them stretch goals!


Going forward as well I feel retweeting is also important, but lets not highlight every tweet that has #Shenmue - Its nice i know to retweet and show your happiness that Shenmue indeed coming back, but I think its more important to at least try and get the word out there that more funding is needed, urging people to up there pledge if they can afford it or asking them to pass the messgae that despite meeting the $2Mil we are still a long way


I also think we need to be campaigning and pushing for new rewards - I dont think the current rewards are incentive enough for people to be pledging a lot of money - Look at Bloodstained rewards for over $500... and see there are plenty of options we could have for some pledges above $500 - we need to push for better options so people will pledge more!!! We also need to push them to give us an option to donate via paypal


Finally we need to be getting the word out - I think these are few and far between now, but there are some refusing to back the project as there is no 1+2HD or no physical copy for PS4 - theres no guarantee but we dont know that Sega are not going to re-release 1+2, but YSNET do not and should not need to do it - any time spent by them porting Shenmue 1 and 2 takes resources and time from Shenmue 3 we do not want this! It has also never been said that a physical disk will not happen, its just not happening on Kickstarter... We know Sony are behind this... they could have plans for a physical copy, if they do, buy it then... at least you've pumped more money into Shenmue potentially getting us IV(if its needed) - if not its no big deal. yes physical copies are nice, but not the be all and end all and again if you seriously want a physical copy for your shelf, get a pc copy... and pump more money into Shenmue


Buckle up my friends - we are in for long journey...
