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. So, come join us in Germany, as we once again focus 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 our 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. We’re inviting indie developers of all shapes and sizes along to a venue near the Gamescom in order to pitch their games to our 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.

Come along

If you fancy the chance of winning the Big Indie Pitch (or coming along to spectate and show your support), getting signed up couldn’t be easier.

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
