"Valuable feedback"

"There have been so many great PGC events," said Pearce.

"Since attending the first event back in 2014, I’ve been a huge supporter of Chris and his team. I have some great memories presenting at the inaugural PGC London, to DJing in Dubai, climbing the cliffs of Petra, gambling in Seattle and partying in San Francisco.

"Even when Covid came along, they had the first virtual event about web3 and blockchain games. Never stop PGC team, you guys rock!"

Zaibatsu Interactive's Jussi Ultima said attending the Big Indie Pitch - which returns once again at PGC London 2024 - proved to be a valuable experience after getting feedback from experienced industry judges.

"I participated in the Very Big Indie Pitch for the first time in 2015 and several times after that," he said.

"Each time, I have received valuable feedback from seasoned judges that has helped me grow not only as a professional in the games industry, but also as an individual. In 2022, I had the honour of returning to the VBIP – this time as one of expert judges."
