BitSummit will be held online. Earlier this year, it was announced that the indie game event would not be held this May to coronavirus covid-19 concerns. In its place, “BitSummit Gaiden,” an online iteration, will be held from June 27 to June 28, giving indie games in Japan the spotlight they deserve.  

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.

I tried BitSummet Gaiden a couple times. It’s nearly IMPOSSIBLE! Dang ninjas flying on rocket jetpacks throwing shuriken at me! And if you die, you get sent ALL the way back to the start of 6-1. If anyone thinks they can clear it, I’d like to see it!
