The Big Indie Pitch is returning to San Francisco during GDC for the eighth year running, and as with last year, we’re bringing our PC and Console edition of the competition along with us too.

So, come join us in San Francisco during GDC week 2020 for networking and pitching in one of the world’s most diverse and interesting markets, as we once again put the spotlight on not only some of the world’s best indie developers in the mobile sphere, but also those developing for PC, Mac and Linux too.

The unique speed dating format gives each developer five minutes with each panel of experts, meaning entrants will get real feedback from the event. The winner will also get editorial coverage in PCGamesInsider.Biz and beyond, making this a great chance to get you, your studio and your game played by the world, alongside potentially winning a prize or two.

What? How? Who?

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

Twenty teams will run the gauntlet, giving their all in quickfire five-minute pitches to demonstrate that their title is worth of The PC Indie Pitch crown.

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…


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 March 9, 2020.
