Steel Media, the epic team behind Pocket Gamer, is bringing it’s BIG INDIE PITCH to Dundee on November 30.
The event offers developers the opportunity to pitch their game ideas to a panel of experts (and what experts – see below…)
A speed dating format, gives each developer four minutes with each panel, giving every entrant 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.
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.
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.
Pocket Gamer will review the entries and inform the finalists regarding their inclusion.
All entrants will be notified if their application is to pitch at the event is successful. (Steel Media also notes that all entrants must be able to attend the event and that Steel Media will not cover cover costs associated with getting to the event).
The official deadline for submissions was November 20th, but the lovely SM team are holding the last few slots to make sure everyone gets a chance to enter.
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.
