As you probably already figured out, at Shibuya Productions we are truly passionate about video games.
We believe that many current video game productions are too focused on aesthetics and often lack truly interesting and exciting gameplay.
For us gameplay is a fundamental part of enjoyable gaming. We can’t help thinking about the old days when, no matter what the game, console, computer or arcade, one could play it over and over again, and still enjoy it every time.
Our goal is to encourage those SPECIAL FEW who put gameplay in the center of their game creations.
