[QUOTE]exodus on PAX[/QUOTE] Ah, yeah that's what I suspected. His behavior and attitude stinks, and if not for this being a crucial year for me to go I'd probably not go, honestly. [QUOTE]Is it worth it for indies to have a presence? Not really, but there are vehicles through which you could have done it if you signed up back in June or something. There's an indie area that some international folks go to, but it's beyond closed now. I didn't get any booth space in there myself, though I considered it. I am still thinking about whether I can push my sony connections to get me a spot, but I'm not sure it's worth it. [/QUOTE] [QUOTE] [b]karasu[/b] Honestly? If your main goal is to do business, I think it's a waste of money to go to TGS unless you already have local contacts/meetings planned. You have much better chances to find a local publisher if you already released your game elsewhere. For PSN and eShop (3DS/WiiU), I know local publishers look carefully at what gets released on the Western stores and approach the developers of the games they are interested to bring to Japan. If you are looking for local connections, I guess some of the local "Ura TGS" parties do have some value. The guys at 8-4 make one each year. One guy at NaNaonSha used to do an even better one (in terms of atmosphere and weird people) in which I actually met the future producer of Pazudora (I only realized this recently), but he left Japan a few years ago. The rare ones thrown by publishers usually have zero value. [/QUOTE] Thanks very much for the info, both of you. Exodus: I was thinking on next year. I knew this year was essentially sunk but as it is I probably couldn't have managed to go anyway. As it is I'm certainly getting ahead of myself and need to get the English language release out to start with, and worry about Japan afterward. Then for next year maybe things will work out!
