Here we are with two days left! This month has been quite a journey, and just like our hero Ryo, we have fought hard battles and made new friends along the way. None of us can doubt we have been brought together by the love we share for this game that has given us so much.
One of those new friends and a key member who helped Yu Suzuki get Shenmue 3 off the ground, onto Kickstarter, and where we are now, is the founder of Camouflaj and the Director of République, Ryan Payton. Ryan is back for our final video interview of the Shenmue 3 Kickstarter.
He had already spoken with us before the project went live, but as a Kickstarter veteran and Shenmue fan, he knew how important fan involvement through Kickstarter meant to Shenmue.
Bringing the past and future of Shenmue full circle, Ryan sums it all up as we head into the final leg of the Kickstarter journey with his motivational words in part two of his video. Don’t miss it!
Eloquently put sir! Thank you again for all of your work helping make Shenmue 3 something we can all share and be a part of! Everyone, please give Ryan another big round of applause!
