Last year Pocket Gamer Connects returned to San Francisco. Well we're back once again, and the extra large Very Big Indie Pitch is looking for the best indies from around the world.

The Very Big Indie Pitch will be exactly what it says on the tin: a mammoth developer pitching competition open to all types of independent developers working on mobile, wearables, or handheld games, wherever they are.

Who? What?

The Very Big Indie Pitch will kick off with a preliminary round of submissions to identify the best talent (and allow overseas developers a chance to be shortlisted), we’ll then progress to the face-to-face pitch which takes place as a part of Pocket Gamer Connects San Francisco 2018.

As always, this means we'll be brinigng together a host of leading mobile game journalists in one room, together with partner sponsors from the publishing and middleware sector and industry experts. Developers will then be given 4 minutes to pitch to each judges table in a ‘speed dating’ style.

Once all the developers have pitched, the judges confer and pick five finalists. Those shortlisted will then spend Day 2 showcasing their game to PGC delegates. The finalists will subsequently take turns to introduce their game to the audience at the end of Day 2, before the winners from the vote are announced on stage.

Profile and prizes

Aside from editorial coverage and the chance to get their game in front of the leading media influencers and potential publisher partners, this VERY Big Indie Pitch will also reward the top developers with a range or bespoke Indie Prizes which allow the recipients access to a range of Steel Media's advertorial and consultancy services.

The top 5 developers will also win expo space for the second day of the show, and the top 3 will all be interviewed by PocketGamer.Biz too.
