In many ways, it could be argued that the heart and soul of mobile gaming lie within those unique and different games being developed on a daily basis by the indie community. We’ve seen many of them rise to stardom, such as Monument Valley and former Big Indie Pitch winner What The Golf?. However, as the number of indie games being developed continues to grow exponentially, it can be hard to discover the next big indie hit.

Well, this problem is exactly why we set up our regular international competition for indie developers, The Big Indie Pitch, around 8 years ago. From London to Busan and everywhere in between, we currently run around 20 of these global events a year in order to showcase all the amazing new indie games in development. Of course, there are prizes and international recognition, but the reward is the chance to show all of you readers some of the latest games in development.

In fact, only this January, we at Pocket Gamer held our flagship Big Indie Pitch at Pocket Gamer Connects London 2020. This pitch saw more than 25 developers take to the floor and showcase their game to our expert judges.

All in all, it was close, and this meant we were left with some amazing finalists and a prestigious honour for our winner, as Mousetrap Games joined the exclusive club of developers who have won twice with two different games.

Of course though, with so many games on show, there’s so much more than just the top 5, and you can find out more about every single one of them below.

Oh and if you want to take part yourself. Then all you have to do is check out the Big Indie Pitch website for a list of all the upcoming pitches, and find out how you can get your game in front of our panel of judges.
