Digital Melody's Runventure runs to victory at the Big Indie Pitch at GIC in Poland 2017

Digital Melody's 2D one-touch control platformer Runventure took the top spot at the Big Indie Pitch at the Games Industry Conference in Poland.

The Big Indie Pitch is a regular event run by the makers of PocketGamer.biz. It sees indie developers engage in a speed-dating-styled pitching competition for fame and those sweet, sweet promotional packages.

The event gives indies three minutes to pitch their games to a panel of press, publishers and industry pundits. The judges then pick three winners and everybody gets valuable feedback. This latest one took place in Poznan, Poland at the Games Industry Conference 2017.

Runventure

Digital Melody took first place at the Big Indie Pitch at GIC for its excellent platformer Runventure. Taking inspiration from classic platformers and Indiana Jones, the game condenses the experience into one touch control for running and jumping, nailing the easy to learn yet hard to master experience.

TinyTomb

In second place 36’s action adventure game TinyTomb, in which players must find lost treasure, fend off evil foes and uncover the secrets of your character’s quest. The impressive voxel style, unique game design and personal stories of the characters all come together to make this a promising title we'll be sure to keep an eye on.

ARcade Plane

Augmented reality is one of the hottest trends in gaming right now, and Radek Czekaj’s implementation of the technology for ARcade Plane was enough to impress judges and earn it third spot at the BIP. The game mixes the AR experience with an arcade-style flying game, in which players must capture stars while avoiding crashing into the emerging city below.
