Thank You!

Thank you!

That’s what we wanted to say for the third annual Monaco Anime Game Conferences which took place on February 18th at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco. MAGIC 2017 was a great success. We welcomed 3000 visitors even though it was originally restricted to 2000. In the future we would like to exceed this number as we want the experience to be special and satisfactory for each one of you.

Shibuya Productions would like to thank warmly all the visitors, fans,  guests, partners, exhibitors and volonteers.

MAGIC is the result of all of you without exception. This image is made from the photos of all of you and is the perfect representation of the event.

We would like to see you again in the upcoming 2018 event, which is already in the making.

See you soon for new adventures!

The MAGIC team!

Fresco, the great 2017 video game contest winner !

On February 18th 2017 an exclusive videogame creation contest was held as part of the Monaco Anime Game International Conferences event. 40+ projects were submitted, 5 of them were selected and 1 of them became the ultimate winner.

Congratulations to MAGIC 2017’s videogame creation contest winner – Fresco, who won the €100,000 investment prize offered by Shibuya Productions and awarded by our panel of judges including Michel Ancel, David Hart and Giancarlo A. Mori.

Fresco will also receive free promotion for his project through a fundraising campaign and tailored guidance through our partnership with crowdfunding site KissKissBankBank.

This effort reflects Shibuya Productions’ will to support and assist emerging talents.

Fresco is a first-person exploration/puzzle game, with a unique gameplay system. Here’s the synopsis: “You wake up alone in a world where life has disappeared. You soon find paintings that you can interact with. As you have a closer look at those pictures, you realise they look quite similar to your environment. Use them to your advantage by placing them on strategic locations so you can make your way through this strange world. You need to analyse your environment, understand what the paintings stand for and find out how to apply them to the world.”

Congratulations to the winner Yannick Gerometta!

What an honor for Shibuya Productions to celebrate the sixth anniversary of our event the Monaco Anime Game International Conferences (MAGIC) on the 7th 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.
