Pocket Gamer Connects Launchpad!

Showcase your new game

Launching a new game at the start of the year? Bring it to PG Biz in association with PG Connects San Francisco and launch it there!

To celebrate 10 years of excellence in the games industry, the team are introducing new live and online elements to the conference programme in 2024, and that includes Launchpad.

If you’re introducing a ground-breaking new game, there’s no better place to unveil your creation than as part of Pocket Gamer Connects San Francisco online promotions in March. With a decade of experience under its belt, this conference has become the ultimate stage for industry pioneers and innovators at both the live event and online.

What is Launchpad?

Launchpad is set to be a game-changer in its own right. This exciting new feature will provide you with the perfect platform to launch your game into the gaming stratosphere. Imagine showcasing your project to a highly engaged and enthusiastic audience of fellow industry professionals, investors, and gaming enthusiasts from all around the world. It’s the ideal opportunity to generate buzz, and make a splash in the industry.

We will create an opportunity for developers and publishers to launch their new projects.  Just fill in the form below, and we’ll shine a spotlight on your latest creation!


How can I be part of it?

Simply fill in the details below to alert our editorial team to your plans, and we’ll be in touch.

Please note this is not for unfinished or theoretical projects, nor is it the place to pitch for funding – we have activities like the Very Big Indie Pitch, Investor Connector and Publisher SpeedMatch for that! Launchpad is purely for you to launch your finished game into the wild.

Slots will be limited and due to high demand we recommend getting your submissions in as early as possible!

The deadline for applications is Friday, March 8, 2024.

  • 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.

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

    Anna NorrevikSVRVIVE / CEO
  • 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.

  • It was a great event and I met some very useful potential investors. So most definitely worth the effort!

  • I run a small indie studio that owes quite a lot of its professional contacts and presentational skills to its attendance to Pocket Gamer events. Thanks for the support!
