The Sense of Wonder Night 2011 festival, due to be held on September 16 during the Tokyo Game Show, is now accepting entries from developers for presentation during the festival.
Up until July 10, developers can enter their work for the contest at the official SOWN site
. The SOWN festival focuses on innovation and new ideas that have yet to be explored in video games.
Now in its fourth year at the game show, SOWN will see a couple of new additions this year in the form of new rules surrounding the selection of the SOWN Screening Committee, and new 'Company Awards' which will be given to those entries deemed worthy.
Any developer can enter the competition, with no restrictions on team size, professional status or nationality.
Judges on the Screening Committee this year include the likes of Masato Shibata, executive officer at Hudson Soft, Akihiro Tashiro, Microsoft Japan's senior manager, and Gamasutra's Simon Carless.
Last year's finalists
included the likes of Spirits
by Spaces of Play, MusicMineSweeper
