This year's Tokyo Game Show was a big one for DANGEN for many reasons. Not only were we showing off a bunch of great games to the Japanese gaming audience, but we were also bringing some extra surprises with us as well.
We were really feeling the energy even when we arrived at the steps of the Makuhari Messe for setup day.
After setting up our booths, it was time for us to hit up our first big surprise: The BitSummit Roadshow party! With four levels of games, drinks, food, and great people, it was an amazing opportunity to bring together developers, journalists, streamers, and game fans to celebrate Japanese indie games. There was even a DANGEN themed drink on the menu!
I hope everyone got to try the Dangen Magic last night at BitSummit Roadshow: Tokyo. It was good stuff, but if I’m honest I did have my eye on Akroyd’s Crystal Head Vodka pic.twitter.com/lv9KkarKQK— DANGEN Entertainment (@Dangen_Ent) September 20, 2018
The BitSummit Roadshow Tokyo was also where we debuted a slew of DANGEN trailers, including our new 2018 commercial, Farm Fresh Indies!
Farm fresh indie games, right to your table. Still brewed just the way it was the time you first took a sip.https://t.co/M1hbLB7pAA— DANGEN Entertainment (@Dangen_Ent) September 20, 2018
On the first day of TGS proper, we were happy to show off a bunch of DANGEN's best titles on the Samsung SSD main stage for the Indie Pavillion show. It was a great chance to show how far DANGEN has come in just a year!

After that, it was three solid days of non-stop boothin' (that's a verb right?) We had an excellent set of games on display at the show, including Minoria, Devil Engine, Astalon: Tears of the Earth, Zenbound 2, Renaine, and the triumphant return of Fight Knight.
We also took a bit of time away from the booth to show some of our games on the IGN Japan stream, the archive of which you can check out below:
We even found a little time between show days to get some late night Kingdom Death: Monster in. We wouldn't have it any other way!
It was a great event, and if you came on my by the booth to check out the games, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts! If you weren't able to, it's okay! There will be other times. Don't worry, we know you love us all the same!
After the torrent of events this year, it'll be nice to relax a bit and get some work done! Until next time!
