Two years ago during Gamescom week 2016 we launched the first ever PC Indie Pitch, and now we’re back to do it all over again, as we head to Cologne to host the third PC Indie Pitch at Gamescom.

Based on our leading Big Indie Pitch and XR Indie Pitch events, this unique speed dating format gives each developer five minutes with each panel of experts, meaning entrants will get real feedback from the event. The winner will also get editorial coverage in our upcoming PC focused website PC Games Insider, alongside the chance to impress our other journalists in attendance, 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.

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 judges, which will include leading PC journalists, publishers, investors and industry experts.

Developers will pitch their games on Laptops moving from one table of judges to the next. 20 developers will run the gauntlet, giving their all in quickfire five-minute pitches to demonstrate that their title is worth of the Big Indie Pitch crown, and coverage in the PC games media.

Come along

ITo register for The Big Indie Pitch at Gamescom 2019 then simply head over to our REGISTRATION PAGE and register your details.

We'll then review the entries and inform the finalists regarding their inclusion.

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.

Deadline for submissions is Wednesday August 14th (although the sooner the better as places are limited). All approved pitchers will be emailed confirmation closer to the event.

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.

If you don't get into the competition, you are of course more than welcome to still come along, grab a drink, and check out the competition.

Oh and if you're not sure what to expect, then you can check out all the epicness from previous pitches over on our Facebook page.
