Hot off the heels of our amazing return to live in-person pitching at Pocket Gamer Connects London 2022 we are back on the road, and this time we’re heading back to Seattle for the first time since 2019, as we host our bumper Very Big Indie Pitch at Pocket Gamer Connects Seattle 2022.

Taking place within Pocket Gamer Connects Seattle 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 PCGamesInsider, The Virtual Report 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.

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 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.

  • Charlie Scowen – Steel Media
  • Ty Taylor – The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild
