Our globe-trotting developer competition is once again back on the road, and this time we’re heading back to Sweden, though this time we’re heading towards the Arctic Circle for the first time ever. So, come join us as we join Arctic Games Week 2019 in order to as always, focus the spotlight on some of the world’s best indie developers.

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 win free entry to Pocket Gamer Connects, alongside one of our bespoke Indie Prizes which allow the recipients access to a range of Steel Media’s advertorial and consultancy services. There’s also the prestigious Big Indie Pitch baseball bat too!

What? How? Who?

How it’ll work couldn’t be simpler. We’re inviting indie developers of all shapes and sizes to join us at the Arctic Game Conference 2019, in order to pitch their games to our teams of tame journalists.

Approximately 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.

The basic criteria:

  • You can pitch games for mobile, portable (including Switch), mobile VR, and AR
  • You can pitch your game even if you’ve pitched it at a previous BIP
  • We prefer to see unreleased games, though we’re happy to see games that are out too

Here is also a link to a helpful information pack about the BIP…


All submissions will be notified if they are successful in their application to pitch at the event. Please note that all entrants must be able to attend the event and Steel Media will not cover costs associated with getting to the event.


The closing date for entries is Friday, May 24, 2019.
