Japan Times article on the DiGRA Japan inaugural meeting
Almost same article is here.
They are probably the first English-language news articles on DiGRA Japan.
Unfortunately, these articles not really accurate about DiGRA Japan. It says, for example:
"According to the group, the association will also try to develop visually impressive game software using the latest image processing technologies and promote academic-industrial collaboration by providing newly developed technologies to companies."
I really don't think that is what we are going to do.
Moreover, this articles does not mention DiGRA 2007.
