I absolutely love Shenmue, but I don’t have a lot of free time to do this titanic task.

My goal throughout this project is to remain true to the original visuals and artistic Yu Suzuki vision. I continually refer back to the original texture assets to ensure this. But this is a laborious task; It’s a trial and error task doing lots and lots of ingame tests until the remade High Definition texture feels enough shenmue-ish. I want the best visual experience of the game as possible and this is not always easy.

This is not a simple scaling texture project. First of all, I scale the texture up to 1024×1024, 2048×2048 or 4096×4096 pixels. After that, it is required to remake the texture using similar HD pictures. After finding a suitable HD photo, it is necessary to redraw some parts, edit, match colors, filtering, etc. with photoshop/gimp until the texture feels like the original one but in HD.

With your contribution you ensure the success of this project. You are supporting this ongoing work and helping with the costs of the hardware/software. Also, more funds, more time I can spend with the project! Your contribution would be very appreciated.

You will need Kaldien's 'Special K' Mod to inject the new textures into the game.
