Summertime is almost upon us, which means that we’re all due a trip to the beach. And in particular, we’ll be heading down to Brighton beach in July for a special Big Indie Pitch just in time for Develop Conference.

Taking place on the 12th July at VOLKS (please note venue change, by the Brighton pier), we’ll be serving up a Big Indie Pitch for your enjoyment with our lovely friends at Amazon Appstore & Chillingo!

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 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.

If you want to submit a game for judging, head over HERE to get your game signed up. We'll then review the entries and inform the finalists regarding their inclusion.

So why not pack your bucket and spade and come join us at the Big Indie Pitch in Brighton – we’d love to see you there.

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.


 ***Please note you can submit any mobile, VR, handheld, or wearable game even if it is not fully completed.***
