Come along to the Pocket Gamer Big Indie Pitch in Cologne

When we launched the Big Indie Pitch at GDC in San Francisco earlier in the year, it was a roaring success.

If you missed it, here's the deal:

Loads of mobile app journalists get together in a big room, and each is given a table. Indie devs then walk in and - a bit like speed dating - each of them has five minutes to pitch their mobile and/or tablet game.

When their time's up, the devs move onto the next table, and begin their pitch again.

Sounds fun, right? More importantly, it should sound "productive", as you'll be guaranteeing that mobile gaming's taste-makers get to see your product.

Next steps

Now we're bringing the Pocket Gamer Big Indie Pitch to the German city of Cologne during Gamescom, courtesy of the fine folks from Sega.

Taking place on 20 August from 5pm to 8pm (CEST) at the Die Kunst Bar, this event is open to any indies that want to get their games noticed by a who's who of the mobile press.
