Visual communication, Tokyo Game Show, NordicGame

Nordic Game and Tokyo Game Show are approaching. I am sure there will be few Finns in Malmö at NordicGame. I visited NGP (in 2005 the conference was still titled as 'Nordic Game Potential') last year and really enjoyed the sociable but conversational atmosphere. Read the short report from 2005.

Instead there will be no huge Finnish delegation at the Tokyo Game Show (at least Neogames will not arrange a trip to Tokyo because of lack of participants). Tokyo Game Show with open its doors at Makuhari Messe just two days after NordicGame.

I am expecting to see inspiring presentations related to mobile games / communities / participatory ideas. Perhaps something like Goscube's mobile quiz? Featuring creative ideas like enabling the users to participate in a broadcast program together with an announcer character. Luckily there is enough space for mobile innovations in Japan because mobile phones and PSP really need one (or a few).
