Relying on which Twitter accounts you comply with, Sony is stepping away from indie builders and has turned its again on the Japanese improvement scene. The corporate’s official sponsorship of Asobu is presumably only a ruse, then – this doesn’t match the narrative in any respect, does it?
For many who don’t know – and, we’ll admit, we needed to Google it – Asobu is a community hub for Japanese indie creators based mostly in Shibuya, Tokyo. It’s a spot for builders to return collectively, share concepts, and work on initiatives – somewhat bit like an impartial YouTube House however for recreation improvement.
As an official sponsor, we assume PlayStation will likely be offering monetary assist, data, and publishing alternatives. It’s nice to see the corporate supporting grass roots initiatives like this, and we hope it helps to domesticate some enjoyable initiatives sooner or later.
