Last month, PocketGamer.com launched the first-ever consumer showcase event dedicated entirely to mobile and portable games in the form of LaunchPad. This online event saw 53 brand new games showcased to more than 3 million viewers across 3 action-packed days.
That’s not all though, as with a global social reach of 38.5 million and over 100 thousand page views across 66 dedicated articles, this was definitely a place for gamers to locate the next hit mobile titles.
Of course, many of these were triple-a publishers, which included the likes of Super Evil Megacorp, Gameloft and Bandai Namco. However, those who tuned in were also presented with a substantial number of upcoming indie hits, 10 of which have been previously presented as part of Steel Media’s very own Big Indie Pitch competition.
Supporting indies is our mission here, and so it was amazing to have so many former pitchers highlighted as part of this mammoth celebration of all things mobile gaming.
From past winners to up-and-comers - and with games filling all genres from city builders, to action-packed multiplayer titles and gliding down glistening mountains - LaunchPad didn’t just show some of the best former pitchers we’ve had; it highlighted some of the best indie developers around.
However, we know not all of you were able to tune in, and even if you did, you may still want just a little bit more information on which of those 53 games have their genesis of sorts within The Big Indie Pitch. Well luckily for you, that’s exactly what this article plans to do. As such, below you will find a full rundown of all 10 former pitchers who took part in the inaugural LaunchPad, presented in alphabetical order.
Oh, but quickly, before that, if you’re reading this and want to potentially join the following games by pitching as a part of the competition, possibly winning a prize or two and hopefully impressing our judges, then simply hit the links before for all the information on how to enter.
