Tokyo Game Show 2022 " (TGS2022) was held from Thursday, September 15 to Sunday, September 18, 2022.
It was the first time in three years that the show was held offline, and all the booths were crowded!
There were long lines to try out major games, but many indie games were relatively empty, so if you want to play a variety of titles, I recommend you visit the indie game corner if you are coming to TGS next year!
Now, this time, I, the author who visited the indie game corner, would like to introduce some of the titles that struck a chord with me!
誰もが経験した感覚をそのまま操作に！TGS2022 インディーゲームコーナーで肩で操作する「Shoulder Drive」を試遊してきた！
2D action game created by a HIPHOP group!
This time, I would like to introduce " SONOKUNI," a 2D high-speed action game created by DON YASA CREW, which is also active as a HIPHOP group!
The BGM as well as the illustrations are done by the members who were active in creating HIPHOP music videos, and we can't hide our surprise at this entry into the game industry from a different industry!
This game is also supported by iGi (Indie Game Inc ubator), which has recognized the quality of the project and has provided financial, technical, and business support for its development.
Play on a real machine!
First and foremost, the music is great!
The original Japanese rap music will be ringing in your ears.
Since I am a HipHop fan, I am excited to be able to listen to the especially pleasant music all the time while playing!
This game consists of three actions: attacking, parrying, and slowing down.
Both you and your enemies are one-hit kills, so you can enjoy thrilling, high-speed action!
Once a player dies, the tutorial begins!
A few seconds of video will show you how to deal with the enemy that caused your death.
There are times in the game when multiple enemies are closing in on you at the same time, and knowing exactly what knocked you down will help you get the most out of your next try-and-error attempt, so you can go on with the game!
The tutorial can also be skipped with a single button, which allows for a quick retry, lasting less than a second from the time of death!
Coupled with the music, this crisp trial-and-error game is scheduled to be released on Steam in 2024!
There's also a Demo video from TGS, so be sure to check it out for yourself for the best HIPHOP and game footage!
