So what’s next for the Big Indie Pitch? Well after an impressive display at GDC 2016, the Big Indie Pitch is next off to Germany for International Games Week Berlin.

If you’re an indie developer currently working on a mobile, handheld, VR, or even smartwatch game, and you’ll be in Berlin on April 22nd, then consider entering our Big Indie Pitch @ Gamefest Berlin 2016, sponsored by Amazon Appstore.

Perfect Your Pitch

Our extremely popular Big Indie Pitch events give indie developers from around the world three minutes to showcase their latest game to various different panels of industry experts in a unique speed dating format.

These events include immediate feedback on your game from leading journalists and successful mobile game developers. What’s more, the the top three will also receive a promotional package that can be used across all of Steel Media’s websites including Pocket Gamer, AppSpy, and PocketGamer.Biz.

The Big Indie Pitch is the perfect opportunity to get your game out there and get some exposure whilst also receiving valuable feedback. Previous winners include Red Winter Software’s Dungelot: Shattered Lands and I-Illusions’ Element4l.

Interested, but not sure if you qualify? Then maybe this will help:

  • You can pitch games for mobile, VR, handheld and even for smartwatches.
  • 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.
  • Your game doesn’t have to be completed, as we welcome games in development.
  • One submission only per developer/team.
  • Deadline for entries is midnight April 15 2016 (entry details below).

So, if you want to be a part of our Big Indie Pitch @ Gamefest Berlin 2016, then head over to our event page, register your details with us, and we’ll let you know if you’ve been shortlisted.

Oh, and if you are coming along, don’t forget to bring your business cards with you.
