Ticket Cost:

Two 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, as we head to Cologne to host the third The PC Indie Pitch at Gamescom.

The PC Indie Pitch offers shortlisted developers a chance to impress some of the best mobile 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 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…


All submissions will be notified if they are successful in their application to pitch at the event. Please note that all entrants must be able to attend the event and Steel Media will not cover costs associated with getting to the event.


The closing date for entries is August 18, 2019.
