All 20 games from the Very Big Indie Pitch at Pocket Gamer Connects San Francisco 2017
|

Well, we can't have a Pocket Gamer Connects without throwing our usual Very Big Indie Pitch. If you're not sure what that is, it's when mobile developers from all over the place come together to show off their games (and maybe win one of the big prizes on offer) to a panel of knowledgeable judges.

This time around we saw a mixture of awesome games. From simple shooters to perplexing puzzlers, we had our work cut out for us. Alas, there could only be one winner overall and that was Terra Genesis by Edgeworks Entertainment.

Though you can find out more about Terra Genesis and the runners-up, Audio Sky and Z War 1, let's take a look at the full list of entrants.
