Tokyo Game Show 2024 Highlights Indie Game Dev Scene

A few weeks ago, I was invited to the Tokyo Game Show 2024 briefing where the organization’s executives gave a brief overview of the event.

Read on to find out what to expect, event highlights, and more! 🙂

What is Tokyo Game Show?

If you’ve been following my social media pages, you’d know that I went to Tokyo Game Show last 2023. LOL, I was there when Square Enix revealed a lot of new gameplay info about the recently launched FF7: Rebirth.

Tokyo Game Show is the biggest gaming event in Japan, and this is where most of the big-name publishers and developers make their most anticipated announcements and reveals! This year, TGS will still be held at Makuhari Messe in Chiba for four days, from September 26 – 29, 2024.

The first two days will be official business days, but the public can attend and check out the happenings on the last two days. That’s actually when all the big announcements and mini-events happen! 🙂

Call for Entry: Selected Indie 80

The Tokyo Game Show event briefing was held in collaboration with CBZN Perspective and the Game Development Association of the Philippines (GDAP).

TGS wanted to highlight its Indie 80 initiative, where the organization will select 80 indie game developers to showcase their games at the event for free. This initiative underscores Tokyo Game Show’s commitment to supporting and promoting indie talent, providing them a platform to reach a global audience.

As someone who was personally able to see the indie showcase last year, this is a really good opportunity for indie devs around the world to bring attention to their projects! Tokyo Game Show has such heavy foot-traffic so there is bound to be some of it directed to the indie game scene. 🙂

If you’re an indie dev, you can check out more information on Tokyo Game Show 2024’s official website! Good luck! 🙂
