The fifth annual Sense of Wonder Night competition will take place during this year's Tokyo Game Show (September 20-23), celebrating 10 experimental and creative games from around the world.
According to event organizers, "games of any genre, platform, language, degree of completion, already released or non-released" are eligible, and any game that offers a "never-seen-before gaming experience" or that "challenges the common sense of ordinary games" (among other qualifications) is sought.
Tokyo Game Show officials anticipate roughly 200,000 attendees this year. Recently, Sense of Wonder Night presenters have also been given floor space to connect with those attendees. Previous presenters include the XBLA Kinect title Leedmees
, upcoming PSN title The Unfinished Swan
, and the Indie Fund-financed Antichamber
Applications to present are due July 8, 2012. To get a sense of last year's talks, you can watch recordings of the presentations here
