We will do something outside of TGS.

As PLAYISM has already announced, we will hold an event like this.

Just to let you know, Naramura is one of the hosts.

It costs us a lot to exhibit at TOKYO GAME SHOW such as travel, accommodation and equipment fees. It is difficult to make that money for Japanese indie game developers. So, some developers of our acquaintances gave up on joining it for that reason. It is also impossible for us to attend TGS with all members. Then, we decided to hold the event as we thought we’d better to set another purpose other than TGS. The plan was getting pumped up while I am unaware.

We, who are trying to enter the global market, are keenly aware of walls which can’t smash by individual. In fact, this is a circumstance that we think it is essential for indie game developers to unite in order to spread Japanese indie games to the world, however we can’t afford to run such a unity.


Some developers come from overseas though, it must be gathered conscious people who are eager to spread their own games into the world. No way we miss this opportunity. We’d like to appeal to indie game developers who exhibit at TGS or only drop by TGS.

Originally, it is not NIGIRO’s proposal. Mr. Agarie from NYAMYAM, who is now making TENGAMI, call up the idea and I went along with it. We suggested this plan to companies, then, the event is brought to realization.

Now, we take action as we are likely to shrivel up ourselves if we just wait movement of our surroundings or game industry. I think we would publish more information that we won’t do even at TGS. Unfortunately, this event is open for limited people such as indie game developers, media reporters and publishers. Be sure to come to the event if you are eligible. I just face the event like “Let’s drink with us”, because I’m not well-prepared yet.
