Haven't played it, but it sounds awesome!
We all miss Ryo's adventures in Japan, so this seems like the perfect holiday gift. Thank you for making this!
 
The heck?? Gonna try this right now. It looks like the scope is very clever, while not a parody it doesn't get so serious that forbids it ever happening. Thank you very much!
 
Version 1.61 (27/12/23) –
  • Fixed Bunkado Antiques hint, previously wasn’t clickable
  • Added Tomato Store hint
  • Fixed Ecco bug where after you win the game, playing again would hide the menu

I really dislike the spinning santas glued to the buildings, I'd rather have them shown on the map and change when found.
Edit. just noticed that that the completion was added in Santa's collection window.
And finally finished it!
The Bar Toon Santa was hardest to find for me, which is funny because it's one of the smaller spaces.

Eventually I'll add that they disappear from the buildings/be smaller/not spinning.

Having them on the map would be a lot of work but I'll look into it. I needed a quick fix as I'm on vacation and have spent 90 hours in the last week trying to make the game as polished as possible.

Max Dood streamed it and then a bunch of non Shenmue fans started playing, got lost and sent me messages. I needed a version that was very clear where to go.
 
Of course, I understand, take your time. Watched some of these streams too. Just finished the game. Bar Toon Santa gave me a hard time :D

I haven't finished yet but loving everything that finding. What a xmas surprise. you made an excellent fan-game.
 
I've played Dreams of Saturn today after finishing Shenmue I yesterday and it was a great little companion title to spend some extra time in Yokosuka. I haven't read through this thread yet, because I wanted to share my own fresh thoughts without subconsciously rehashing what others might have already mentioned, though I'm sure there'll be some overlap.

Long story short I'm very impressed with this project both technically and creatively. While in some areas the game (currently) is a little glitchy this feels in a lot of ways like a tech-demo / proof-of-concept dressed up as a fun Christmas themed fan game. I wouldn't be surprised if this will in some way, shape or form serve as the basis for more seriously themed projects in the future.

Great work!

Edit: I've played v1.1 and it took me the better part of the day to finish.

Anybody doing the Chobu Chans search ? I'm missing #12 and #25, did someone find them ?
I don't want the exact location but maybe an hint as to where to search for them.

Edit : I've found #25, only missing #12.
