#SaveShenmue QTE!
« on: July 13, 2015, 04:31:44 AM »


As the Shenmue III Kickstarter sails past $4.7 million, it's finally time to announce the special campaign event that we have planned for this Wednesday.

The first-ever #SaveShenmue Quick Timed Event is a new concept with a globally synchronized start time, so please check out the full announcement at TeamYu.net/QTE to make sure you're prepared for this last ditch effort in the Kickstarter's final days.

We're not giving up...

Quick question... do we need to refresh the page or will refresh automatically?

The page won't refresh automatically, no. That would be very annoying for anyone still trying to read. :D

Okay, I was thinking that there might be an AJAX call or something. That's fine. Looking forward to Wednesday!

Hope the server doesn't get bombed with too many page requests.

hi, i've just signed up for the site, and also activated my auto tweet. Can anyone give me any more details about what the QTE event actually is? it mentions that just a few clicks will be required, is this a mass tweeting event? sorry for my ignorance i'm quite new to twitter.

also why do i have ¥250 next to my name at the top of the screen?

thanks

Hi John, welcome aboard!

The ¥250 is virtual money that increases when you post on the site. It's had many uses in the past, and will again when we're not so Kickstarter-focused, but for now it can be spent on virtual Jet Colas for your fellow posters in our equivalent to Facebook's "like this comment" feature or Twitter's "favorite this tweet" icon.

The exact format of the QTE is being kept deliberately vague until that countdown reaches zero. What kind of QTE would it be if you were told in advance what to do? This is a test of your reactions under pressure. ;) Don't worry though, being new to Twitter shouldn't place you at any disadvantage, as it will all be done from that page with simple, clear instructions.

With the Shenmue III Kickstarter now raising over $4.8 million in pledges and well on its way to the next stretch goal before Friday's deadline, it's time to reveal the prize for this Wednesday's #SaveShenmue Quick Timed Event.

If you're donating $100 or more to fund Shenmue III, you'll already be seeing your name in the credits of the game. But what if you could add your best friend at no extra cost? Or the family member that introduced you to Shenmue all those years ago? Your names would be together forever, immortalized in the most significant video game sequel of our lifetimes.

That's what you're able to win this Wednesday. Two #SaveShenmue campaigners have sacrified their place in the credits to reward one lucky winner with this rare opportunity.

The first ten participants in the QTE, plus four random others, will be entered into a drawing for the prize. Details on how to participate are at TeamYu.net/QTE

Good luck to us all in what we hope will be a week that sees Shenmue III become the most funded video game in Kickstarter history. Thank you for all your support!
