You may remember we covered the Indie Live Expo 2020 here a couple of weeks ago when some initial details were released. Well, they have now released some new details, and a few new names have joined the sponsor and contributor’s lists. The information-based live stream event is still planned for June 6th. Several new details have now been announced, though. One new announcement is that the live stream event on June 6th will be able be watched on the NiconicoLive in cooperation with DWANGO Co.,Ltd. They say a link to it will be posted on the Indie Live Expo 2020 website.
As you can see below, Cygames, Inc., GameTomo, Maple Whispering Limited, Spike Chunsoft, Inc., Sony Interactive Entertainment Inc., and Pocketpair, Inc. (in no particular order) have now joined the Indie Live Expo 2020 as sponsors. Here is their updated sponsors graphic:
In order to celebrate the fact that special guests Mr. ZUN (Touhou Project) and Mr. Toby Fox (Undertale) will be appearing, there will also be an original medley of their masterpieces. It will be played by popular rock drummer, Mr.Dainashi (ダイナ四). The press release also says that further details on the contents of the program, its guests, and giveaways for the audience will be revealed soon.
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:
