The Big Indie Pitch and PC Indie Pitch at Gamescom 2019

21 August 2019

The Big Indie Pitch, helping developers connect with publishers, investors, media and more since 2013, head to Gamescom 2019!

The Big Indie Pitch is returning to Cologne during Gamescom week for the 7th year running, and as always this pitch promises to be one of the highlights of The Big Indie 2019 season. Watch or submit your game as the Big Indie Pitch focuses the spotlight on some of the world’s best indie developers during Europe’s biggest gaming event of the year.

The unique speed dating format gives each developer 4 minutes with each panel of experts, meaning entrants will get real feedback from the event. There’s editorial coverage in Pocket Gamer, AppSpy and beyond on offer, making this a great chance to get you, your studio and your game played by the world. Alongside the chance to potentially win one of bespoke Indie Prizes which allow the recipients access to a range of Steel Media’s advertorial and consultancy services.

What? How? Who?

How it’ll work couldn’t be simpler. Indie developers of all shapes and sizes are invited along to a venue near the Gamescom in order to pitch their games to teams of tame journalists.

Twenty teams will run the gauntlet, giving their all in quickfire four-minute pitches to demonstrate that their title is worth of the Big Indie Pitch crown and coverage in the mobile games media.
