Taking place from 3PM on 5th August at the stunning Wartesaal on the banks of the river Rhine, our latest Big Indie Pitch is sponsored by Samsung and offers shortlisted developers a chance to impress some of the most renowned mobile games journalists (as well as getting some fantastic feedback).

The unique speed dating format gives each developer three minutes with each panel of experts, meaning entrants will get real feedback from the event. The winner will also get editorial coverage in Pocket Gamer, AppSpy and beyond, making this a great chance to get you, your studio and your played by the world.
