Our globe-trotting developer competition is once again back on the road, and this time we’re heading to Romania for the first time ever. So, come join us as we once again focus the spotlight on some of the world’s best indie developers as a part of Dev.Play 2019, one of Eastern Europe’s leading game industry conferences.

The unique speed dating format gives each developer four minutes (plus one minute of Q&A) with each panel of experts, meaning entrants will get real feedback from the event. The winner will also get editorial coverage in Pocket Gamer, AppSpy and beyond, making this a great chance to get you, your studio and your game played by the world, alongside potentially winning a Steel Media marketing package to be used across our portfolio of sites and services.

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 Dev.Play 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 pitches to demonstrate that their title is worth of the Big Indie Pitch crown and coverage in the mobile games media.
