The Big Indie Pitch at Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki Digital 2020
Pocket Gamer Connects Digital is back, and this time it’s taking over our annual Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki show! Following the success of Pocket Gamer Connects Digital #1 and #2, we thought what better way in this current time to keep our industry-leading Pocket Gamer Connects Digital show on, than by taking it online. Oh, and of course, that means our digital Big Indie Pitch is back too.

For those not in the know, Pocket Gamer Connects Digital is a virtual conference for the games industry, from the makers of PG Connects! Networking is an essential part of the games business, but 2020 is not unfolding as expected. Big conferences like GDC have been postponed, and folk are unable to travel quite as freely. So in our continuing mission to serve the games industry, we’ve come up with what we believe is an answer (at least temporarily) in the form of PG Connects Digital. Sitting alongside our live events, September 14th-18th sees the return of our completely online-only event, this time as a takeover of our extremely popular annual Helsinki edition of Pocket Gamer Connects.

We’re working hard to once again distil as much of the content and spirit as we can from the traditional PG Connects events. That means expert talks and panels, the Meet to Match digital meeting system (with built-in audio/video conferencing) so you can connect with over 1500 attendees, and of course digital versions of fringe events like the Big Indie Pitch! We’re not going to pretend this will have ALL the benefits of a regular conference. There are no free drinks for a start, and no booths to wander. But we’ve been refining the process all year, and we’re looking forward to once again helping everyone to stay connected, do business and have fun through these challenging times.

An all-digital Big Indie Pitch, then! We’ve done a fair few throughout 2020 now, and we’re confident that much like the physical pitches, our digital offerings continue to offer shortlisted developers a chance to impress some of the best experts the industry has to offer (including journalists publishers, investors, and notable indies), answer questions and gather expert insight on their game. Just this time it’s without leaving your home or office…

Our unique speed dating format gives each developer 5-6 minutes with each table of expert judges, meaning entrants will get real feedback from the event. The winners will also be covered across Steel Media's network of website (such as Pocket Gamer and PC Games Insider), making this a great chance to get your game up in lights.

The closing date for entries is Friday 4th September 2020.

*Though please submit early to avoid disappointment as places fill up extremely fast*

The basic criteria:

You can pitch your game even if you’ve pitched it at a previous BIP
We prefer to see unreleased games, though we’re happy to see games that have been released in the last 6 months, or recently updated.

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 being a part of the event.
