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 during Pocket Gamer Connects Connects San Francisco on March 18-19.

What is the Very Big Indie Pitch?

The Very Big Indie Pitch (Mobile edition) takes place within Pocket Gamer Connects Connects San Francisco 2024. 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.

When does it take place?

The Very Big Indie Pitch (Mobile edition) is scheduled to run on Monday, March 18. The session will run 2pm – 5pm (PST).


Xsolla Funding is dedicated to supporting your journey to success. Through the Xsolla Funding Club, connect with developers, publishers, and investors who can support and propel your game towards triumph.

Embark on your game development journey with the Xsolla Accelerator, a robust program offering different educational initiatives, personalized mentorship, and opportunities to secure funding for your game.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
