Inside Japan's indie scene

While Western indie devs get fancy functions like GDC, IGF and Gamescom to show off their wares (and crowd-funded movies telling the story of their struggles), the indie scene in Japan is scattered at best. It's not that there aren't any small studios or one-man teams making exciting games - there are loads, as fans of La-Mulana, Cave Story or Tokyo Jungle will attest. But unified and strong the scene is not. (3DS, Android, Dev, Indie, Industry, Next-Gen, Nintendo DS, PC, PS Vita, PS3, PS4, PSP, Tokyo Jungle, Wii U, Xbox 360)
