April 3rd: 50th Tweetathon
« on: March 28, 2016, 09:30:44 PM »

We must be nuts. All of us. We must be out of our freaking minds to tweet about a video game every 3rd of the month for FIFTY straight months, and still remain committed to our cause of restoring this franchise. Who actually does that? Really?

This Sunday we wear our insanity on our sleeves once again, as we remind the world not only how delirious we are about Shenmue 3's crowdfunding success, but how crazy we feel about the need for Shenmue 1 & 2 to be re-released for its audience to grow.

Because when you peel away the madness, giving new fans access to the story's roots is the most sane way to secure Shenmue 4, and save us all from taking unhinged to a new level.

With prizes and surprises lined up to be revealed, you don't want to miss this milestone event in the campaign whose screwball supporters are pure gold.

Always believe in your soul: #SaveShenmueHD

Fifty months of tweeting like clockwork to establish change for a withheld franchise earns you a special event, we reckon.

This Sunday's #SaveShenmueHD Tweetathon will be like no other. There'll be two "first time ever" methods of celebrating this milestone, one of which is tightly under wraps until it's announced on the day. We could tell you about it right now, in juicy detail, but we're just bad, bad people.

To help atone for our sins, the other unique form of celebration is something we'll call Spot Prize Sunday. Which simply means that throughout the Tweetathon, we'll be holding impromptu contests on our Twitter account @TeamYu. Follow us and pay attention for multiple chances to win fitting prizes at any point in the day.

On top of these bonuses of course, taking part in the Shenmue Tweetathon is its own reward, and has been for the last fifty straight months. Every 3rd you spread the word, and you've proven that you can be heard. So this Sunday, once again, Team Yu needs YOU for Shenmue 1 & 2!
