There will also be a very special gift giveaway to celebrate the inaugural stream of the PLAYISM Game Show.
PGS serves as PLAYISM’s Pre-TGS Lineup Reveal Party ahead of this year’s all-digital Tokyo Game Show (TGS), Asia’s premier video game event taking place Wednesday, Sept. 23 to Sunday, Sept.27. Many PGS titles will be featured in the company’s events and digital booth at the extensive virtual TGS festivities.
PLAYISM serves as a gateway between the West and the East’s best indie games. Western players have enjoyed titles such as Kero Blaster from the creator of Cave Story, Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight, and Touhou Luna Nights thanks to PLAYISM. Meanwhile, Japanese audiences enjoy localized versions of Subnautica, 2064: Read Only Memories, VA-11 Hall-A, Necrobarista, and further titles to come.
“There are games created by one person, or by small teams, simply because the creators wanted to. They are created because of the passion of these people towards their art. This passion is not something that can be imitated with huge budgets and large teams,” said Shunji Mizutani, Executive Producer, PLAYISM. “These are the games that we have supported for almost a decade. These, are Indie Games.”
The PLAYISM Game Show occurs Monday, Sept. 21, at 6:00 pm PDT with an expected runtime of two hours in English on YouTube.
