As you probably already figured out, at Shibuya Productions we truly devote a passion for video games. We believe that many current video game productions are too focused on aesthetics and often truly lack of interesting and exciting gameplay. To 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, through this UNIQUE CONTEST, those special few who put gameplay in the center of their game creations.

What an honor for Shibuya Productions to celebrate the fifth anniversary of our event the Monaco Anime Game International Conferences (MAGIC) on the 9th of March.

Who could have believed, that a Gala Dinner, which was initially organized to celebrate the creation of the company, was going to transform into an inevitable yearly pop culture event in the Principality of Monaco.

 Who would have thought that after only 4 years, MAGIC will be exported to Japan, in Kyoto, Japanese culture’s heart.
