BitSummit is the largest independent game show in Japan. It aims to bring together independent games in Japan and show the world the local developers' creativity. It also invites overseas teams to show their games in Japan, promoting international exchange between developers and gamers. ARF has been sending representatives to the BitSummit since 2014, and members have been sharing what they have learned with independent game developers in Taiwan.
The seventh BitSummit was held at Miyako Messe on June 1 and 2, 2019, in Kyoto, Japan. Participating works from Japan, Europe, USA and Southeast Asia appeared more mature this year and the number of visitors also hit record high.
Although it is unfortunate that none of Taiwan's participating works got nominated, over 10 games from Taiwan were showcased, which is by far the largest number since the first BitSummit. At this year's BitSummit, Taiwan has also received special attention as one of the unique countries in Southeast Asia. The ARF looks forward to more participation from Taiwan and greater exposure overseas in the future.
