Today’s press release also says that Indie Live Expo 2020 is still inviting new sponsors and creators until midnight on May 31st (Japan time). They also apologize because it may take a while to get a reply from them, as they are getting lots of offers from interested parties. They say, however, that they are working hard to include as many different games and bits of information in the event as they can. Of course, not everyone who contacts them may be able to be a part of the event, but they are trying their best to cram in as many as they can fit! Here is their updated contributors graphic, showing a handful of new ones, compared to a couple weeks ago when their previous announcement was made:

Indie Live Expo 2020 Contributors Update 1

Michael Fontanini
Michael is a veteran gamer in his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general). I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
