Japanese Indie Game Typhoon of November

By the way,
Do you know Japanese Climate?

Do you know japan climate is very strange recently?
How is climate in your land?

Recently small earthquake happen a lot. And temperature change a lot in japan.
And some typhoon came a lot after autumn.

World people don’t notice Japanese indie game scene like they don’t notice Japanese climate change now.

I want to tell you like this.Can you believe?
“Something happened at November 2013 for japanese indie game scene”
Japanese Indies started to exhibit a lot of game to audience recently.

New Indie game festival of Japan started!?
There were two events in this month.
One is Tokyo Location Test game show in akihabara, and other one is Digital Game Expo in kamata.

Comic market is famous otaku festival of japan not only video game but also they show a lot of comic and cosplay.
Usually indies go to show their video games in comic market.
But new place appeared called Digital Game Expo.

Digital Game EXPO is the first rare event of exhibiting original video games without comic market.
This is special indie game developer’s event for all game fun.

I felt something that new phenomenon started with very clear philosophy for future.
“Make game freely”
“Exhibit Game freely”
“You are freedom”

Even though I am Japanese, but It was not easy for me to find out Japanese indie game usually.
But I found a lot in this November.I must say this is miracle month.

And I noticed Japanese Indie Game Typhoon will be coming very soon to the world.

I hope I can join it in near future.I hope I can.
Bye

Handmade boad game of Onion.

I participated in GameMarket 2013 winter.

gamefestival
This is Indie Game Market .but this is not video game festival.
This festival is for Board game and table talk game.

 

 

And I made and show this.

New Chess “Onions and shadows”

fromtop
I Love meeting for playing boad game with friend.
I think I like the sense I can get while we are playing.

I am very interested in the face of people’s happiness and sadness while they are playing.
They show many kind of face.

“Sense of accomplishment”,”Feeling that want to win”,”Face of suspicion”,”Face of trust”,”Mind that I’ll want to attack”,”conservative mind”

I am very glad when I can discover people’s emotion.
While I am playing board game with my friend.
I am feeling like this.
“Oh? really? you react like this as a one of human?”

 

tableplaying

By the way I discover impressive human’s face at the table of our place in Game Market also.
That is difference between adults and children.They show me each different face while they play my game.

Adults are very careful playing for each move with serious face. They are thinking next next next next step for not lose pawn. And they want to play without fails. They need plenty of time to think at their turn.

“This is game. Please play easily”
I was talking to them without voice.

But,Children are playing the game more easily with face of curiosity. They move a pawn very quickly without deep thought. They are not bothering from anything and not worried about anything. They experience a lot of win and lose. They challenge again and again.
“Please think a little before you move. please”
I was talking to them without voice.

OnionKing

This Is really the difference between adult and child ?

It may be the difference between the way of life?

Which temper is good ?
“the temper of who want to play without fails” or ”the temper of who want to play with impulse” ?

While I am watching their playing. I was questioning to my self unconsciously,
“Which temper am I living with?”

KickStarterMan of british with typhoon

I had a meeting with mr.John szczepaniak the last friday.

I invited him to my home.
And we ate pizza and drunk some beer.

kimura&john

kimura & Mr john szczepaniak

 

He is the man who try to make a book of japanese video game.

The Untold History of Japanese Game Developer.

He came here at the day when new typhoon was coming to tokyo and it  was incredibly windy and rainy.
I have to call him “the man of typhoon” :-)

I wanted to know what he is. And I was interested in what he was going to ask me.
After all, He asked me about my past story a lot, moon,rule of rose,chulip, etc.
And I answered good and bad story both a lot.His question was very maniac.

“Did I talk about past too much?”
I am suspecting my self often like this when I talk to people.
But maybe, it was necessary for me to talk about past to somebody.
So it was ok.

 

By the way, while he is interviewing with me, I was thinking different things.
It is about Kick starter of him. He is making book with the money from crowd funding called kick starter. I think he is brave man. His doing is like a real adventure game.

This man was traveling over the sea from far away land, and he is meeting a lot of japanese developer.And he is trying to make interesting book.
I felt very much his ambition of his life and his love for video game.
Why is he coming? Why is he interested in me? why? why?
Maybe, this theme “The untold history of japanese game developers”  must be very important for him.
And I think he can not stop his impulse of creating  this book.

After he went back, I was thinking about my self and kick starter in rain.

rain
Honestly I say “I am very afraid of kick starter and people’s judgement.”
But if I can get strong impulse from my heart, Can I stand in front of audience like him?

My impulse will be coming to my heart or not?
I do not know yet.
