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:

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:

About 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).

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called Pre-Computer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode (a bare-bones version of BASIC) which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer, which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the Unity 3D game engine (a powerful and easy-to-use engine) and learning 3D modelling in Blender.

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.
