#SaveShenmue QTE Competition and the Winners

 

 

Last week we took on a new concept that we labelled the ‪#‎SaveShenmue‬ Quick Timed Event, aiming to give the Shenmue III Kickstarter an extra big kick in its final days.

The QTE involved participants following simple button presses on our website, resulting in a colorful tower of carefully co-ordinated Shenmue images decorating the news feeds of their Twitter followers, accompanied by introductory facts about the series and compelling reasons to back the Kickstarter.
One of the tweets in each tower was from the user’s own account, the rest being retweets from six other participants. When scrolling past all seven images, the giant letters in their center spelled “SHENMUE” from top to bottom.

At stake for participants, in addition to promoting what would later become the highest funded Kickstarter for a video game in history, was an opportunity to win two vacant spots in the Shenmue III credits. Donated by two campaigners from their Kickstarter rewards, the prize would allow the winner plus a friend or relative – or two, if they already had such a Kickstarter reward of their own – to have their names digitally immortalized together forever in the most significant video game sequel of our lifetimes.

The interest and support for this event was staggering, and we want to thank everybody for embracing an idea that was kept deliberately vague beforehand, and for your patience when a technical hitch delayed the silky smooth start we’d envisioned. We’re delighted with how it went overall, and see a lot of potential for future events when needs arise.

But we’ve kept you waiting long enough – it’s time to announce the winner of the inaugural QTE! The first ten participants and four random others were entered into a draw, and the lucky name pulled out of it was: Marwa Hadi!

“An Iraqi girl who’s going through life and is obsessed with Japan,” this Baghdad resident had already secured her place in the Shenmue III credits through her Kickstarter donation, allowing her to give both of her newly awarded spots to fellow Shenmue fans Hasan Al-Momin and Ghaid (Didi) Haider. Please look out for all three when the credits eventually roll, and join us today in congratulating @MarwaHadi_M for keeping friends close with the #SaveShenmue QTE!

In order for Shenmue 3 to be the best game we could want, remember to make a donation at Shenmue 3 website – (https://shenmue.link/order/) If you missed out during KickStarter and it’s great way to show support and become part of gaming history.

There are still stretch goals to be reached.

Created this website for the Shenmue500K group but when Shenmue 3 Kickstarter happened… What other role it needed to play. This website will bring you all the latest (New,Updates and Interviews and maybe even odd article from myself). Regarding Shenmue 3 Development over the next 2 years.

Enjoy 😉
