In just a couple of days, the 2018 Taipei Game Show is about to begin. Considered as one of the biggest video game events in South East Asia, expect a lot coming from this 5-day event at the Taipei World Trade Center.
There will be three main parts that make TGS this year. The first will focus on the triple A titles with companies such as PlayStation, Bandai Namco, Ubisoft, SEGA, and more showcasing a series of products. The second one is for The Indie Game Fiesta which will feature 25 countries and 180 indie teams for console, PC, mobile, VR, and board games. Lastly, TGS will have the Asia Pacific Game Summit and this is where various speakers will hold talks across various topics such as eSports, indie games, AR/VR, marketing, and more.
The Taipei Game Show is a massive event and in partnership with various websites in the Philippines, we plan to tackle an event as part of the Geek Collective:
"The Geek Collective is a group of various media entities in the Philippines that focus on geek culture who banded together with the intent of promoting, engaging, and growing local geek communities and interests. To achieve this, each member of the Geek Collective seeks to report on relevant geek news that happen both locally and globally as well as to make creative content that the communities will enjoy. The five (5) current members of the Geek Collective are UnGeek, Will Work 4 Games, Twenty8Two, Geekend Gladiators, and Too Much Gaming with each outfit lending their own expertise towards the group. This joining of efforts, sharing of best practices, networking between contacts, and creative collaboration aims to elevate Philippine geek and gaming journalism to new heights."
To commemorate the first international coverage of the Geek Collective, we're launching a Taipei Game Show 2018 Merch Giveaway in each of the partner sites. We're giving away special Taipei Game Show 2018 merchandise gift packs to five lucky winners. Each partner of the Geek Collective will be hosting a giveaway in their respective channels.
