  • News Most Video Game Projects Fail on Kickstarter

    Table-top games now rule the roost

    If you’re planning to fund a video game on Kickstarter – and judging by the spam in our inbox, plenty of developers are still trying – then you may want to consider converting the project into some kind of table-top title. A new report reveals that only one in four games tends to reach their target on the...

    And there are still 12 hours to go

    Shenmue III has become the most funded video game in Kickstarter history – and there are still 12 hours left for the PlayStation 4 and PC sequel to do something really special.

    You know what you need to do

    Should you back Shenmue III's soon-to-end Kickstarter campaign?

Currently, backing the project for $60 will...

  • News The Snow Turns to Rain in Final Hours of Shenmue III Campaign

    Let's get sweaty

    Well, this is it: your last chance to save Shenmue. It's been a topsy-turvy ride for Yu Suzuki's long awaited Kickstarter campaign, but with the end in sight, it's time for one final push to make Shenmue III a reality. At the time of typing, the title has amassed $5.5 million, which means that it's agonisingly close to breaking...

  • News Shenmue III Smashes $5 Million Milestone

    Way cool

    Shenmue III may have struggled during the middle part of its crowd funding campaign, but it's really flying right now.

This means that the Character...

  • News Yu Suzuki Hints at Fresh Shenmue III Trailer

    FREE at last

    This is it: the final push. Shenmue III is a week away from being funded, and while the past seven days have been kind to the project, it's going to need a massive boost in order to hit some of its latter stretch goals. Fortunately, series creator Yu Suzuki sounds like a man with a plan, and he's hinted as part of a Twitter Q&A...

    Love these

    Shenmue III has about week left to make as much money as possible, which means that the pressure's now on for the Kickstarter campaign.

At the time of typing the funding...

  • News Keep Those You Love Closer with New Shenmue III Backer Rewards

    Iwao would be proud

    We thought that the Shenmue III Kickstarter campaign was being poorly managed at first, but developer Ys Net is getting cunning as the crowd funding drive marches confidently towards its conclusion. Two new tiers have been added to the title today, and one is aimed specifically at all those who upped their pledge to $60 following...

  • News Shenmue III Is Already One of the Biggest Kickstarters of All Time

    Lucky hit

    Fans will know that the Shenmue series doesn't do things by half. Yu Suzuki's seminal action adventure was once the most expensive game ever made – almost bankrupting publisher SEGA in the process – but now it has ten days remaining to become the biggest Kickstarter ever, too. With the Pebble Watch sitting at a cool $20 million, it...




  • News This Dude Wanted $20,000 to Smash Up His Anniversary PS4

    Haters gonna hate

    There's a gag in Life Is Strange that alludes to the ubiquity of bad Kickstarter campaigns, and while it's one of the game's more on-the-nose pop culture references, we reckon that it's bang on going by this particular fund raising drive. Already cancelled by the company monitoring the money making site, one guy was offering to...

    When asked how we’d invest the winnings from a successful EuroMillions ticket, we often discuss our desire to fund the full production of Shenmue 3. It’ll never happen, of course, but reports coming out of the Monaco Anime and Game Show suggest that series creator Yu Suzuki is at least...
