This past weekend, BitSummit roared through Kyoto. The show keeps growing, and this year was the biggest BitSummit yet!
Have a look below at some of the games and festivities. If you do get a chance to come to visit BitSummit, I cannot recommend the show enough. It’s a good time.
"Kwaidan" is an indie game created by a Japanese individual developer.
Seamlessly combining 3D action and point-click adventure, this game provides a nostalgic-yet-new experience.
This game will be exhibited at #BitSummit (IP-13), so come and see us!https://t.co/6Bl2xOGTEn pic.twitter.com/cO5d1ZFjZ6

Last year, the Devolver BitSummit crew had dynamite ramen at Karako in Kyoto and noticed awesome illustrations around the counter. Turned out the artist, Shinji Oshika, also worked there part time.
This year we had the honor of Shinji Oshika designing our BitSummit 2019 shirts! pic.twitter.com/805Qcjhspu

Few pics taken at Kyoto #bitsummit! #BitSummit7Spirits there were so many great and inspiring indie games and lots of talented guys, but see kids’ wondering faces enjoying the games and having fun, was one of the things that makes me feel happy and lucky to work in this industry. pic.twitter.com/4v3A8xsJkW
