Organizers of the Tokyo Game Show's Sense of Wonder Night 2011 event have announced the ten independent, 'unconventional' games to be showcased at the special event later this month. Now in its fourth year running, SOWN is an annual event that aims to discover new and unconventional game concepts that "catch people by surprise and give them a Sense of Wonder -- a sense that something will change in their world -- right at the instant of seeing or hearing the concept." The developers of the chosen games will be asked to demonstrated their games on the show floor, with Japanese-English and English-Japanese translations available. The selected presenters for the event are as follows: Eufloria (PSN) - Rudolf Kremers I'm Gonna Be God of the Forest - Isao Inside a Star-filled Sky - Jason Rohrer KuraKuraMaze - Yoshimi Kurihara Leedmees - Orihara Nagayo Q.U.B.E. - Daniel Da Rocha Reflow - Frederik Maucksch and Matthias Wolff Solstice - Jordan Hemenway Incredipede - Colin Northway Taplib - Yanagihara Takayuki SOWN's presentations are based on the Game Developers Conference's Experimental Gameplay Workshop format, allowing each developer to take the stage, demonstrate and explain the project, and answer questions for around ten minutes. The SOWN presentations will take place on September 16 from 17:30-20:00 in Room 201, Makuhari Messe of the International Conference Hall. The Tokyo Game Show itself will occur September 15-18, as the annual expo aims to become "The World's Largest Event."
