Following the success of the successful Big Indie Pitch events in 2013, we are delighted to announce that we are, again, hosting The Very Big Indie Pitch – mobile gaming’s biggest indie centric competition.
Across the whole of the afternoon of Monday 16 June, (1.15 pm – 6.15 pm) we’ll be offering the finest indie developers who submit their games the chance to get their games in front of dozens of the most professional, eminently trustworthy and superbly handsome (ahem) games journalists the world has ever seen.
Every developer will get themselves Three minutes with these voracious, game hungry journalists, rotating around tables within our classic speed-dating format to ensure your game gets a thoroughly good going over. And, if that wasn’t enough, everyone who takes part will have the opportunity to enjoy the fantastic following benefits:
And the best bit of all about this? Everyone is invited to come along! If you’re an indie looking to step up to the plate and give us your best mobile gaming shot, then you can submit your pride and joy to us to seek the approval of our mighty judges via the Pocket Gamer Business Network.
Note: You must be a member of the PGBN to submit your app for consideration.
Entries need to be in by Friday 6th June and if you get the nod we’ll be in touch before you know it with all the details (including your completely free day one pass to Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki). All entrants must be able to attend PGC Helsinki and Steel Media will not cover cover costs associated with getting to the event.
We can’t stress enough here at Pocket Gamer how much we love indies and how much hosting the likes of the Very Big Indie Pitch means to us. So either get your game in the mix or grab hold of your PG Connects pass now and join us for another historic Very Big Indie Pitch in the heart of mobile gaming.
