Its been left up to Joe Nazi and Fred Woman-hater @youtube to take up the mantle and fight for the backers.....ungh.
My backer pledge has been moved to the PS4 because the further away I deduct Epic from Shenmue's goodwill the better (although I might lend it out to as many people as possible if not sell it entirely). But by initiating the nuclear option on Kickstarter is something I would have to really think about because I do want to HOPE that there is a good natured developer out there that deserves a chance. But when Shenmue... I mean..... Bloody Shenmue of all the fucking games - it kills me inside.
Game was kickstarted with a promised Steam releaseThe PC Gaming Show stream debuted a new trailer for Shenmue III. At the end, there was a curious lack of a Steam logo which cast doubt as to whether it will really launch on Steam or if Epic nabbed it as an exclusive. Waiting on a official press release from Deep Silver.
UPDATE: Confirmed by the official Shenmue III Kickstarter
UPDATE 2: Looks like PC physical copies will come with an EGS key instead of a Steam one which confirms full exclusivity
Hmm pledge was 4 years ago on an old card, plus I've 3 other live projects on Kickstarter
