Independent video game publisher Pixmain found Enter the dragon, its inaugural event featured on Steam that will showcase the latest games and upcoming releases developed in mainland China and Taiwan. The week-long event aims to spotlight both indie games and the latest blockbusters to come out.
Enter the dragon takes place April 22-29 and promises to be a celebration of talent, creativity and gaming experiences from the Greater China region. The event was created in response to the challenges developers were facing following global restrictions on international travel and live events that made it difficult for developers to showcase their games.
The event will feature leading developers and publishers such as bilibili, Lightning Games, Yooreka Studio, Thermite Games, indinova, and other independent newcomers from across mainland China and Taiwan. The week will offer exclusive first looks, playable demos, new English language trailers, and a preview of the latest developments for upcoming titles.
The showcase will include an opening night show, editor spotlights with dedicated virtual stage spots, and an all-star gaming stream with appearances from a series of Twitch streamers. Throughout the week, discounts and bundles will also be available for all involved games that have already launched.
Jeff Huang, editor at Pixmain and organizer of Enter the dragonsays, “A number of studios in mainland China and Taiwan rely on showcasing their games to the global gaming community at events to grow their fan base, gain exposure, and garner early feedback. Even after two years, there are still restrictions on travel and very few event opportunities. Enter the dragon will fill a need by offering developers and publishers a chance to bring their products to the virtual stage and gain global exposure.
Enter the dragon comes to life on April 22 from 7:00 PM SAST and ends on April 29. The full program of the event will be unveiled shortly.
