Now’s the time to showcase your work on the world’s biggest game show floor.
The Tokyo Game Show is one of the most anticipated games of the year as it showcases some of the biggest game titles, not just from Japan’s own homegrown game development titans but also from Western developers. Running since 1996, the Tokyo Game Show’s whole show floor consists of various areas where attendees can try out Game titles, gadgets, Business areas for investors, an educational spot for Universities and institutions, and even tournaments, all in the heart of the nation that is home to some of the most iconic gaming platforms in history.
Over the past few years, the Tokyo Game Show also opened a new spot, this time, catered towards Indie Game developers. Giving them a chance to feature their works to crowds that can reach well beyond 200,000 people over the course of the event, the Indie Game Area also provides opportunities for Indie Game devs to meet with potential investors as the Tokyo Game Show itself does hold media and investor only days. This year’s Indie Game Area is also bound to be bigger in terms of those who will be involved as the TGS management has unveiled that Sony Interactive Entertainment, the brand that brought the world the PlayStation, is a major sponsor of the indie game spot. With this new development, the TGS management has also announced that selected Indie Game Area applicants will be able to showcase their work on the show floor for free.
But how does one get a free spot at TGS? Well for interested indie devs, they would have to send their application inquiries via e-mail to the TGS management or get in touch with them right away through any of the available contact channels made available on the Tokyo Game Show website.
The 2018 installment of the Tokyo Game Show will be held this coming September 20-23, 2018 in the Makuhari Messe, Mihama-ku, Chiba Prefecture, Japan.
