After three years it was finally time for our second home in Helsinki for Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki. Of course, this also meant the return of the Very Big Indie Pitch. The Very Big Indie Pitch is our bumper edition competition where even more developers are able to pitch an ever-increasing range of brand new and diverse gaming experiences from some of the most exciting indie developers, not only from across the globe.

The Big Indie Pitch is a regular event run by the makers of PocketGamer.biz. It gives indie developers the chance to pitch their games to industry experts and journalists in a speed-dating-style format. Teams get the opportunity to get valuable feedback on their games, as well as win great prizes such as promotional packages and opportunities to promote their game.

As always, the developers gave it everything they had in order to walk away as the winner. An award that was eventually bestowed upon Latchback Games' Break the Beyond. Though it is certainly worth highlighting how well received our runner-ups Eatventure and Stunt Track Builder were. Want to know more? Well luckily, you can learn more about all three games right here.
