About GYAAR Studio:
“GYAAR Studio” was founded in 2021 as an indie game label meant to help foster ace game creators for Bandai Namco Studios’ major global titles, by allowing young talent to express their creative ideas directly and freely. In hopes of having as many creators step up to the plate, the first GYAAR Studio Indie Game Contest that was aimed at indie game creators outside the company was held in 2022 and one Platinum Award winner and seven other prize winners were selected.
By extending support to allow variety of game titles to shine brighter than ever, the hope is to further stimulate the video game market.
