During the festival, about 80 booths are installed, providing a variety of indie games to be displayed and experienced. At the conference, we will showcase the indie game industry trends and share the creators' know-how and support growth. Networking between creators, as well as publishers, investors, and public institutions, will be sessions for business meetings.
