The Digital Big Indie Pitch is back! Yes, we’re ecstatic to be able to return to doing live events, but that’s no reason to reduce our Big Indie Pitch offerings. As such, we’ve decided to blend both our physical and digital pitches together in order to make sure we offer opportunities to all indies in 2022 and beyond.

Our all-digital 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. Without leaving your home or office…

Our unique speed dating format gives each developer 5 minutes with each panel of expert judges, meaning entrants will get real feedback from the event. The winners will also be covered across Steel Media’s network of websites (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 12 teams will run the gauntlet, giving their all in quickfire 5-minute pitches to demonstrate that their title is worth the Big Indie Pitch crown and coverage in the games media.

Be a part of it
