The Very Big Indie Pitch (VBIP) returns to PG Connects 2016, a mammoth developer pitching competition open to all types of independent developers, wherever they are based.
For PGC Bangalore, the event plays host to the top 20 finalists of Reliance Games’s Game Hack pan-India game development competition with the aim of awarding one of the winning games the VBIP Grand Prize.
A host of western leading mobile game journalists will be gathered together with partner sponsors and established developers to go over the submissions. The indie devs will be allowed 4 minutes to pitch to each journalist/developer table in a ‘speed dating’ style. Once all the developers have pitched, the journalists will confer and pick the finalists that will progress through to pitch live to an expert panel of judges and live audience for the Grand Prize.
Aside from the chance to get their game in front of the leading media influencers and potential publisher partners, this VERY Big Indie Pitch will also reward the top teams with the following in marketing and technical investment:
- Winner : $20,000
- Runner Up: $10,000
- Third Place: $5,000
Plus, the top 2 teams also receive a cash prize:
- Winner: 500,000 (Indian rupees)
- Runner Up: 100,000 (Indian rupees)
In addition, our sponsor Perk is offering a prize to each of the top 3 teams:
- Free one-year enterprise licence for Corona – that’s a prize worth $2,400! You’ll find more information here.
