It feels like an age since we’ve been able to host the pitch in person, and whilst our digital pitches aren’t going anywhere, we couldn’t be more excited to be able to return to hosting physical pitches. Even better, we’re back to host what is always one of our biggest pitches of the year, The Big Indie Pitch in Koln as a part of Gamescom week.

For those not in the know though, The Big Indie Pitch offers shortlisted developers a chance to impress some of the best experts the industry has to offer (including journalists publishers, investors, and notable indies), answer questions and gather expert insight on their game.

Our unique speed dating format gives each developer 4 minutes with each table of expert judges, meaning entrants will get real feedback from the event. The winners will also be covered across Steel Media’s network of website (such as Pocket Gamer and PC Games Insider), making this a great chance to get your game up in lights.

What? How? Who?

How it’ll work couldn’t be simpler. We’re inviting indie developers of all shapes and sizes along in order to pitch their games to our teams of tame journalists.

Approximately 15 teams will run the gauntlet, giving their all in quickfire 4-minute pitches to demonstrate that their title is worth of the Big Indie Pitch crown and coverage in the games media.
