Hello everyone !
I've got a pretty big piece of news to announce here today :

Kamui, Clover-TAC and NAK are travelling to France in April to demo Battle Garegga, Dodonpachi Saidaioujou and Mushihimesama Futari at Stunfest.

Image Image Image

This is happening within the frame of our project titled "Wasshoi In Europe". The idea was initiated by Jon while we met up with Kamui, Erhune and Eaglet at a restaurant in Akihabara last August. This happened because we went to talk with Kamui and other superplayers on the way back from Wasshoi itself (Kamui is also part of Wasshoi's organizers), which were all happy to talk to Western shmuppers. There are two disconnected worlds of shmups that are interested in each other, and we thought of asking Kamui about the possibility of coming to Europe to demo shmups. A project was outlined and first talked about to 3HitCombo, the association behind Stunfest. After the success of our Superplay Live MIG demos including shmups, I forwarded a more accurate framework for the project to 3HitCombo who agreed to do it. A lot of emails were sent to make this work, essentially going back and forth between France and Japan with Jon doing the Japanese side and myself doing the French side. It was a lot of work and we weren't sure it would happen, until we were finally able to confirm that everything would work, a few weeks ago. The Superplay Live and 3HitCombo staff have helped a great deal on the French side.

I believe this is the first Japanese shmup demonstration by world record holders outside of Japan, or at least in the "Western" world. I'm very happy about it, as I consider this not only a beautiful gift to the western shmup community, but also a great opportunity to communicate our common passion for shmups to people who don't know much about them. There will be plenty at Stunfest, and they will see top level play with quality commentary on the main stage.

The players will also likely take part in a conference following screenings of the 100yen documentary (which deals with the japanese arcade scene).

Perhaps some of you guys will want to come to Stunfest this year because of this, if so, here are some information :
http://www.stunfest.fr/english-informations/
• Rennes has an airport and is also easily reachable by train from Paris.
• It has a cheap youthhostel that I have used a bunch of times when I attended Stunfest, about 20€ per night breakfast included. You can also couchsurf for free of course.
• The price for entering Stunfest is usually around 15€ for 3 days I think.
• The dates are April 26th, 27th and 28th.
• It is a really great event to attend because it is organized by an association, has a ton of attendees and features, stays open at night for a party with 8bit music, conferences, tons of free play games and fighting game matches and tournaments which you can spectate or take part in, with high level matches with commentary on a big stage. One of the reasons why it's such a cool event is that it's all about passion rather than money if you know what I mean. We, the shmup guys from France, usually hang out around 6 free play cabs with a bunch of shmups, play and do demos on a smaller scene and sometimes on the main one. This year, Kamui, Clover-TAC and NAK will be with us. So join in !!

Defraying the players :
We were unable to fully compensate the superplayers for their trip. They are very happy to come here, but they're having to spend quite a bit of personal money to do that and we would like them to spend less personal money, so a bunch of us have donated some. Actors who have financially contributed to the project are 3HitCombo, the 100Y directors, a French gaming magazine named Pix'N'Love and the Wasshoi founders themselves. If you would like to donate some money, you can send some to this paypal account : skyengines@yahoo.com (unfortunately we are unable to set up a regular donation button :/).
All of the donations will go to the 3 players themselves to make their trip less expensive.
We will make a list of donators and publish it so the Japanese players and observers can see the Western support :]
You can input a name or nickname or "anonymous" in the "Subject field" and whatever message you like in the optional field which will be added to the list.


Please don't hesitate if you have any questions or remarks or whatever, I will be following up with more information here before and after Stunfest.

It's great that you guys are doing such a great thing for the Western STG community. Best luck to you with this, and even though I can't attend I am extremely happy to know that this event is happening.

Please do some interviews with the players!

PS: France rocks, first X-Mania Europe and now this.

That sounds fucking great, east and west together, especially since I know there will likely be decent footage this time unlike some recent events with Kamui and other superplayers that only had a few snaps. (might have been Wasshoi, not sure)

This is great. I hope their runs are recorded and eventually get posted online. I'm dying to see NAK make God Mode his bitch.

Yes we will be doing our best to record and also stream things and post as much info and media as we can. Sorry about not covering Wasshoi better, we who attended it didn't plan on communicating about it much so we only had a bunch of things to show for it in the end. This will be different.

No musician from Japan is coming to Stunfest as far as I know :p However there are usually a nice bunch of musicians from Europe, mostly electronic, who perform in the evening especially on Saturday. There is a gaming theme to it in general (much like Wasshoi actually), and it's always a ton of fun, like everything else at Stunfest to be honest. It really is a great event to attend.

Does anyone know from where is the CLOVER-TAC picture? Looks like it could be out of some documentary?

I believe this is from the 100Y documentary itself but I am not 100% sure.

Please do, z0mbie90. It would be a great pleasure to have shmuppers from outside of France coming to Stunfest and attend this special event with us :)
I always wanted to see that happen and it has been pretty rare so far, though I did come to a bunch of events or meets outside of France myself. This year, you guys have an additionnal very special reason to come !

Psyched to be helping out from Japan on this!
Shout outs to Prom for pulling everything together France-side. What started as a simple idea at Denny's in Akihabara is about to become reality! :!:

EU folks should go check it out! :D

Yeah seriously, make the trip to Rennes guys!!! I want to see you there! I've been to London, Milan and almost Hamburg just for shmupmeets, come to France and see NAK TAC and Kamui next month!

Wow this amazing. Respect to Kamui, TAC and NAK for making the effort to come overseas, and to you Prometheus, I wouldn't have thought something like this would have even been possible!

I won't be attending because I spent all my money on expensive video game imports, but I will be eagerly awaiting whatever footage of the event emerges. Once again, really well done Prom, it sounds like it's going to be a real treat.

If only this was announced a little earlier, I would have booked the two weeks off in mid May for study to coincide with these dates instead. -_-;;
While difficult, I'm going to try and get down for this, but the key issues will be 1) getting the time off work, and 2) finding a place to stay. Any Rennes residents willing to let a Geordie crash on the sofa for a bit? Will pay in beers and pizza. :p

Even though I don't speak French it warms my heart to see the shmup scene growing across the channel.

I would have loved to attend but sadly I'm inbetween jobs yet again sigh.

If Pyongyang was able to get so many orders for his shmup zine, I bet you guys could get a lot of orders for a DVD with footage of Wasshoi/superplays, etc. Even it was a homemade DVD I bet you guys could sell a lot of them and it would help defray the costs.

Just a helpful suggestion,

This is pretty amazing.

I'm actually thinking of coming. I've never made a trip this big, but I guess why not.
I sure would love meeting such incredible players.

hello again!

I have changed the paragraph about defraying and added a link for people who would like to donate (=> skyengines@yahoo.com). We wanted to include a donation button but can't make a real one and it doesn't seem to work with BBCode... so well, that's it :p

Icarus : you should probably hit the French forums because most French shmuppers don't read shmups.com !
http://forum.shmup.com/viewtopic.php?f= ... &sk=t&sd=a
Gus has done that I think as well as a few players over the years. You can post in English on shmup.com, that's cool.
Hope to see you at Stunfest ;)

Here is a trailer they made for Stunfest by the way, it's really wacky I like it ehehe : http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xy2vzx ... U4H4lfpFS0

Endokarb : gogogo to Rennes! Tell JCK, BR1, LUN, POW and everyone else to come as well ;D!!

Same for me, why the late announcement? :(

Meeting T3-Kamui would be super awesome, I'll try to make it.

Looked at flights to Rennes and Paris, way too expensive now alas. :(

Is anyone here going? I wonder if so if someone might be able to get Clover TAC to sign my Progear VHS Super play and booklet?

No worries if not, just hoping someone might be able to help a fellow SHMUPPER out! :)
