Tokyo Game Show is once again almost upon us.
This year, Tokyo Game Show will, for the first time, include Indie Games Festa and the Indie Games Area; a sign that the Japanese indie games scene is becoming more and more important!
In order to promote the continued growth of the indie game scene in Japan, Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia and Active Gaming Media, the parent company of PC indie game portal site PLAYISM will be holding a party, with thanks to indie developers NIGORO (
) and nyamyam (
) for developing the idea.
At this party:
Indie developers from both Japan and abroad will be able to exchange ideas.
Media outlets both from Japan and abroad will be present
A select few parties who we feel could have a positive influence on the often tough indie development / market scene will be introduced
Attendees will include:
Indie game developers and their supporters from all over the world
Domestic and foreign media
Parties interested in supporting the indie scene
Together we can mark the end of Tokyo Game Show 2013 with an entertaining and helpful party.
Are you an indie developer or member of the press that wants to attend the party on the night of September 22nd? Drop us a line!
Excited about what might come of this event? Let us know in the comments! And of course, be sure to check out the Playism EN Twitter and Facebook for all the latest Playism related news!
(Playism pretty much localise and distribute indie titles to and from Japan.)
I'm glad that Sony hasn't forgotten about their own.
