Ryu’s Office founder Ryuta Konuma said:
I saw someone say that INDIE Live Expo 2022 “inspired me to develop my game” and it really reminded me why we put on the show. We want to be a platform that will not only help gamers find the next gem they’ll tell all their friends about, but also inspire developers by showing off their amazing creations. Thanks to the support of our viewers, participating developers and sponsors, this is all happening.
