It will be held on 5/29 at the vocational school.
This event is an event where you visit the school, explain the game creator Koshien, and the editors of Kodansha Game Creators Lab give feedback on the game and proposal on the spot. The first installment was held at Amusement Media Sogo Gakuin, and due to its popularity, it was decided to make it into a series as a caravan. In the future, we would like to continue to visit schools all over Japan as a “game business trip editorial department caravan”.
◆ Background for holding this event
“Game Creators Koshien” is an environment where game creators of the next generation can meet the same creators, work hard, and seize diverse opportunities. increase.
This year, in order to strengthen the development of young creators, we hope to provide more opportunities for creating opportunities for actual production and providing feedback. As part of this, we have collaborated with Kodansha Game Creators Lab, which supports indie game creators, and will hold a visiting editorial department to provide feedback on games and proposals for schools. The purpose is to provide schools with an environment similar to the way Kodansha Game Creators Lab gives feedback on indie creators bringing in games, and to provide opportunities for high-level feedback from professional editors.
Due to the popularity of the first installment, we have decided to visit schools all over the country as a caravan. By holding this event, we aim to further expand the circle of possibilities for student creators, without limiting the creation of a “place for learning and presentation” to the scope of our own contest.
◆ The first event will be held at Amusement Media Sogo Gakuin! On March 17th, the 1st Traveling Editorial Department Caravan was held at Amusement Media Sogo Gakuin.
After giving presentations by participating students from all 11 teams, Mr. Ryusuke Suzuki and Mr. Kyoichiro Hirata of Kodansha Game Creators Lab gave feedback on each work. At the event, in addition to giving feedback on the game, we also answered questions about things that were bothering us during production. I was able to sense the high level of passion that the students have for game production, such as taking notes in response to their feedback.
Finally, a briefing session was held for Game Creators Koshien organized by the Game Creators Guild. We are all looking forward to making the works produced through this event even better.

In the future, the Game Creators Guild will continue to promote activities that provide the know-how and community of “Game Creator Koshien” like this initiative, aiming to maximize the potential of student creators.
