Weíve had to keep this news under our hats for some time, and while iíve been bursting at the seams for some time, itís nice to finally get it out!
At this yearís Tokyo Game Show, on the night of September 22nd, Sony Computer Entertainment and Playism, along with Team Indie Stream (NIGORO and Nyamyam), will be hosting an Indie game focused event called ďIndie StreamĒ.
Indie Stream will be a party that brings together independent developers, publishers, and press to exchange information and get to know each other. Itíll also be a glimpse into SCEJA and Playismís plans for indie gaming in Japan going forward. Of course, there will also be a few exciting announcements, but youíll have to wait for the event to find out what they are!
The following is the official PR:
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 (http://nigoro.jp) and nyamyam (http://nyamyam.com) 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.
