Three years ago during Gamescom week 2016 we launched the first ever PC Indie Pitch, and now we’re back to do it all over again, but this time, we’re inviting console developers to pitch too, as we bring our newly updated Big Indie Pitch (PC+Console Edition) to Cologne to for Gamescom week 2020.

The Big Indie Pitch offers shortlisted developers a chance to impress some of the best games journalists, answer questions and gather expert insight on their game.

Our unique speed dating format gives each developer 5 minutes with each panel of experts, meaning entrants will get real feedback from the event. The winner will also be covered on the Pocket Gamer website, making this a great chance to get your game up in lights.

The basic criteria:

  • You can pitch games for Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac & Linux
    You can pitch unfinished games
    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
    Games must be presented by developers either via video, or on laptops.

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