Interview: Nayan Ramachandran of Playism on BitSummit

Playism occupies a unique role in the game industry. The company is at once a localizer, a publisher, and a storefront. Playism's staff facilitates the release of Japanese indie games in the west and western indie games in Japan, through their own storefront and/or through Steam. They've also been involved with BitSummit since the beginning. Since they have a unique perspective on both the Japanese indie scene and BitSummit, I asked Playism's Nayan Ramachandran to answer some questions for us about BitSummit and Playism's involvement in it.
Weren't Playism staff present at the first BitSummit as interpreters" How did that come about and why did that change for the second and third BitSummit events"

That's right. I wasn't there, so I can't be sure, but yeah, we collaborated with them to assist with interpretation. I was working for Playism at the time, but was telecommunicating from the US, so I can't be absolutely sure.

Last year, you had your own little corner for Playism and its developers, but this year there was no Playism booth and the developers you work with were all over the place. What led to that change"

It was just a byproduct of the planning, and what we wanted to do this year. While the corner was a cool idea last year, I really thought giving all our developers Playism shirts with their games on it worked out better, showing how our family of developers has grown. We were also heavily involved with the booth arrangements last year, and we had a reduced role this year.
Do you mean that you assisted BitSummit staff with coming up with the booth arrangement last year" If so, was Playism kind of on the ground floor of getting BitSummit started and has since floated more to the pure exhibitor side of things"

We did! NIGORO and Playism helped with booth arrangement last year, but we decided to take a less involved role this year due to other responsibilities.

What do you think about BitSummit this year as compared to last year and the year before"

It's an unmitigated success. Amazing booth arrangement, great crowds, and a really cool stage show. I liked that you could stage from every corner of the hall. It was a stroke of genius, to be honest. The vibe was fantastic, everyone was really positive, and having Indie Megabooth bring a group of devs with them as well was super cool.

What if any effect do you think the presence of Indie Megabooth had on the Japanese developers who were present at BitSummit"

I think it gave a lot of Japanese developers a better idea of what's actually being made in the West. A lot of Japanese indie devs aren't necessarily exposed to the full breadth of the western indie scene, so it's great to have them right there, showing off the best the West has to offer. My hope is that this does two things: 1) it gives the Japanese scene some insight into the progress the West has made, and 2) it motivates them to up their game a...
