The XR Indie Pitch is back, as is XR Connects Helsinki.

Much like The Very Big Indie Pitch, which will be happening at the same time, the XR Indie Pitch is a developer pitching competition open to all types of independent developers working on virtual reality games for any platform, alongside AR and MR developers.

What? When?

The XR Indie Pitch will take place as a part of XR Connects Helsinki 2018 this September.

The event is simple. The unique speed dating format gives each developer ten minutes with our panel of experts, meaning entrants will get real feedback from the event. 

Judges will include a mix of industry experts, VR developers, and leading journalists.

Aside from editorial coverage and the chance to get their game in front of the leading media influencers and potential publisher partners, the XR Indie Pitch will also reward the top developers with a share of a Steel Media marketing package worth a massive $5,500 that can be used across Steel Media's portfolio of websites.

We'll even be interviewing the top 3 developers for The Virtual Report too.
