Sense of Wonder

Sense of Wonder Night (SOWN) casts a spotlight on game developers to discover game ideas that make everyone feel a sense of surprise that their world changed at the moment they saw or heard the concept—in other words, “a sense of wonder”—and give developers an opportunity to present their work at the TOKYO GAME SHOW.

The aim of SOWN is to call for new game ideas that will catch people by surprise and give them a “Sense of Wonder”- a sense that something will change in their world – right at the instant of first seeing or hearing about the concept. Entering its 11st year, SOWN 2018 will feature presentations by 8 finalists from 4 countries, chosen from among the 86 developers exhibiting in the Indie Game Area (Type A).
