For Big Indie Pitch events that have their own Eventbrite page (where spectators and pitchers register for their ticket) we will allow pitchers to obtain a ticket before submitting their game details on PG.biz.
However, you will need to register your entry via PG.biz in order to be considered for the competition. (If you don’t, you’ll end up spectating – even if you’ve registered for a ‘pitcher’ ticket on Eventbrite.)
Absolutely. Every Big Indie Pitch has a crowd of fellow developers, interested publishers, and other assorted industry folk just watching the action.
You’ll just need to register for a ‘spectator’ ticket on the Big Indie Pitch’s Eventbrite page.
(One exception: our Very Big Indie Pitch competitions that take place within our PG Connects conferences. There, only delegates already attending the conference are able to spectate.)
Provided there’s enough there to play and get a sense of what you’re trying to achieve, this shouldn’t stop you from entering. We’ve had near-finished and ‘in progress’ games at past BIPs without issues.
Not a problem, provided it hasn’t been there too long. (For guidance, up to 6 months is generally accepted.)
A share of a promotional package worth $thousands (prize varies depending on the BIP event).
And, of course, exposure for you and your game, as well as invaluable constructive feedback from media and seasoned industry figures – think of it as a supercondensed consultancy session, the kind of thing that companies typically pay mucho mucho for.
Even if you don’t win, you come away with guidance on how to improve your creation. So, in a sense, you still win. (And there’s nothing to stop you entering it again at another BIP, with a ‘new and improved’ version of your game.)
