The Big Indie Pitch is returning to San Francisco during GDC for the seventh year running, and this year we're bringing our sister competition for PC Indie developers along with us too.

So, come join us in San Francisco during GDC week 2019 for networking and pitching in one of the world's most diverse and interesting markets, as we once again put the spotlight on not only some of the world's best indie developers in the mobile sphere, but also those developing for PC, Mac and Linux too.

The unique speed dating format gives each developer five minutes with each panel of experts, meaning entrants will get real feedback from the event. The winner will also get editorial coverage in PCGamesInsider.Biz and beyond, making this a great chance to get you, your studio and your game played by the world, alongside potentially winning a prize or two.

What? How? Who?

How it’ll work couldn’t be simpler. We’re inviting indie developers of all shapes and sizes along to pitch their games to our teams of tame journalists.

Twenty teams will run the gauntlet, giving their all in quickfire five-minute pitches to demonstrate that their title is worth of The PC Indie Pitch crown.

The basic criteria:

  • You can pitch games for PC, Mac & Linux
  • You can pitch unfinished games
  • 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
  • Games must be presented by developers either via video, or on laptops.

Judges

  • Andrew Oliver - Game Dragons
  • Adam Dart & Paul Leishman - Junkfish
  • Stephen Hey - Hey Stephen Hey
  • Barn Cleave - Niffler
  • Jupiter Hadley - IndieGames+
  • Dann Sullivan - BigBossBattle
  • Lance James - Versus Evil
  • Jarvis Crofts - SEGA
  • Bill Rehbock - GameFace Labs
  • Steve Demeter - Pixelberry Studios

We'll then review the entries and inform the finalists regarding their inclusion.

All submissions will be notified if they are successful in their application to pitch at the event. Please note that all entrants must be able to attend the event and Steel Media will not cover cover costs associated with getting to the event.

The sooner you register your interest, the better as places are limited. All approved pitchers will be emailed confirmation closer to the event.
