Are you an indie developer? Are you currently working on a new mobile, smartwatch, or handheld game?

If you’ve nodded twice you are hereby encouraged to attend our next Very Big Indie Pitch, which is taking place LIVE during Pocket Gamer Connects London on Monday, January 22.

The clue’s in the name. The Very Big Indie Pitch (Mobile edition) is the bigger sibling of our regular BIP event, which sees indie developers engage in a speed-dating-styled pitching competition for fame (oh, and one of our bespoke promotional packages worth thousands of dollars).

It’s a fun but hotly contested event that has proved a genuine game-changer for teams in the past. You can get a pretty decent lowdown here.

Interested but unsure if you qualify? Got some questions? This should help:

  • You can pitch games for mobile, mobile VR, and AR
  • 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
  • Each successful applicant gets two free PGC London developer tickets and additional tickets for other team members are discounted
  • Even if your application is not successful you’ll still get a discount!
  • Deadline for entries is midnight Monday, January 15 2024

If you’re good to go then submit your details and game using the button below – the earlier, the better. (Should you need to, you can register with the Business Network in order to enter.)

The Very Big Indie Pitch (Mobile Edition) takes place on Monday, January 22 from 2pm – 5pm.

N.B. If you are selected to pitch, feedback on your game from the judges will be made available after the event.


If you have a PC or Console game you’d like to pitch, please see our PC + Console edition of the Big Indie Pitch here.

If you’re seeking an investor for your studio, there is still space available in our Investor Connector session (please apply here).

  • The Big Indie Pitch is always my favourite part of the show. Not just to scout new developer talent, but also for the opportunity to give some feedback and helpful advice to the talented selected teams. It’s highly effective networking for me.

  • I've been participating in the Big Indie Pitch on and off for several years now, and I'd recommend it to any indie in any stage of development. The speed-date format is an incredibly valuable exercise to gauge reactions, gain feedback, and overall help hone that elevator pitch to distil your idea into its marketable core.

  • I've never seen so many fantastic game pitches with such passionate developers in the same room before.

  • The Big Indie Pitch at PocketGamer Connects continues being a fantastic pitching opportunity and one of the most novel concepts for a fringe event. Being able to present our game to a wonderful set of judges and walk out with the golden bat gave us a sense of validation and motivation to continue work in our project like no other event has to date.
