Major gaming companies are likely to dominate the headlines at this weekend’s Tokyo Game Show (TGS), along with the promise of future releases that have budgets reaching into the millions.

Matthieu Guillemot of Japan-based independent studio Little Big MMO will also be at the event with “Gangs of Space,” a massively multiplayer online game. It won the Excellence in Game Design Award in March, during the BitSummit game convention in Kyoto, despite having a budget of considerably less than a million and a development team of just two people, Guillemot and a co-creator who goes by the name Joris. Guillemot will be one of many developers at TGS jockeying for attention in the event’s Indie Game Area.
