Tokyo Game Show 2014

September 18, 2014
@ Makuhari Messe

Just as we did for BitSummit 2014, the PechaKucha team is heading to Tokyo Game Show 2014 to record presentations by indie devs who are either attending the show itself, or are looking to connect to the show.

If you are an indie developer and have a booth at TGS and would like to record a PechaKucha presentation, let us know! We'll be at the show recording on Thursday, September 18 -- if you're not at the show on that day, we can find a way to include you as well.

Banding Together through Games

@ TOKYO GAME SHOW 2014 ON SEP 18, 2014

Roger Hicks talks about his games and how his life has inspired his games to come to life. His love of music and getting lost, inspired and encouraged him to keep working on developing games, and meeting new people along the way. 

Making a band can mean more than getting together to make music. It can bring people together, to get lost, make music, and fight evil galactical wars.   

"Presentation of the Day" on October 3, 2014.
