Dev Log #3 - BitSummit and Future Intentions!

Summary: BitSummit and Future Intentions!

Dev Log 3 is now here! Since the last dev log, Newcore Games went to Kyoto, Japan to participate in BitSummit! We were happy to meet gamers as well as other indie devs, publishers, and game media members as a whole! We are also gearing up to attend the Indie Arena Booth of Gamescom in Germany in August!

Want to learn more? Read on!


Newcore Games went to Kyoto, Japan to attend BitSummit, one of the leading indie game development festivals in Japan. Here, gamers are able to check out the latest in indie games for themselves. This also provided the opportunity for indie devs to meet with one another as well as members of game media.

A small booth with a lot of visitors!

At the venue, players took on Lee Choong in the Boss Battle Demo. Compared to PlayX4 and IndieCraft, we saw a lot more players fly through the demo and take down Lee Choong! Players also got to try out the game on Steam Deck, which got great reviews and a lot of feedback here as well, so we will make sure to review all feedback before we make changes to the game.

One of the other things about BitSummit is that we got to see many more indie devs, some of whom became closer friends of ours! If you haven't gotten a chance already, check out the list of games that were present during BitSummit 2023! There are so many different types of games for gamers to check out, so we are sure you will find something that you enjoy (like The Devil Within: Satgat)!

If you are interested in IGN Japan's Japanese coverage of our game, you can check it out here:

New Images for The Devil Within: Satgat

We also learned from Bitsummit that we needed to update our main image of the game. While we are fond the original image, our art team developed a really cool image of Kim Rip facing off against a horde of enemies (those of you who played the demo would be familiar with the horde).

Let us know what you think about the new image! We are in the process of coming up with a few different designs, so we hope you continue to check out the new art work we have ready for you guys!

Prepping for Indie Arena Booth at Gamescom

With BitSummit done, Newcore Games is preparing to attend the Indie Arena Booth 2023 at Gamescom! We are excited to be a part of the Indie Arena Booth and cannot wait to bring The Devil Within: Satgat to our European fans!

With the new image!

We will be in the Indie Arena Booth area, so stop by and give the game a try! You can also have a chat with us from Newcore Games if you feel so inclined. There are a lot of great games that are going to be at the Indie Arena Booth!

Going Forward

July was a great month in getting to know our players from Japan. We also made great strides in what we want to improve upon in The Devil Within: Satgat after hearing feedback from everyone we met at BitSummit. We also have a lot of things that we are looking to improve and add, so stay tuned for future announcements!

This summer has been busy but extremely productive for us, so from us at Newcore Games, thank you for your continued interest. If you haven't already, try out the demo and wishlist the game here:
