The Big Indie Pitch is coming to Scotland. So, come join us for networking and pitching, as we once again put the spotlight on some of the world's best indie developers this November in Dundee.

The unique speed dating format gives each developer four 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 game played by the world, alongside potentially winning a share of a Steel Media marketing package worth a massive $5,500.

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.

Approximately twenty teams will run the gauntlet, giving their all in quickfire four-minute pitches to demonstrate that their title is worth of the Big Indie Pitch crown, and coverage in the mobile games media.

Come along

If you fancy the chance of winning the Big Indie Pitch (or coming along to spectate and show your support), getting signed up couldn’t be easier.

You can register your game HERE.

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 time abd date of this event is subject to change. If this is altered all submissions will be notified.

The event is completely FREE so sign up as a developer to let us know you're coming, BUT be sure to sign up/come early as space is limited.

If you don't get into the competition, you are of course more than welcome to still come along, grab a drink, and check out the competition.

Oh and if you're not sure what to expect, then you can check out all the epicness from last year's Big Indie Pitch @ Develop:Brighton 2016.
