The Big Indie Pitch is back on the road, and next up is our long-awaited return to our second home of Helsinki. Of course, with the return of Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki, that also means the return of our bumper Very Big Indie Pitch.

Taking place within Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki 2022, this unique speed dating format gives each developer five minutes (including Q&A) with each panel of experts, meaning all entrants will get feedback in real-time and post-event via email too. Think speed-dating for developers and experts, and you get the idea.

That’s not all though, as the top three will also be interviewed and get editorial coverage in Pocket Gamer, PocketGamer.Biz, AppSpy, and beyond, making this a great chance to get you, your studio and your game played by the world. There’s also free tickets and event space at a future Pocket Gamer Connects up for grabs to the winner too. Of course, even if you don’t win, every single game will be covered in our Big Indie Pitch (Mobile Edition) round-up article for Pocket Gamer.

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 industry experts, publishers, developers and media.

Approximately 15 teams will run the gauntlet, giving their all in quickfire 5-minute pitches to demonstrate that their title is worthy of the Big Indie Pitch crown and coverage in the games media.
