We know that indie developers are the lifeblood of the games industry, constantly coming up with fun, new and innovative games that challenge the status quo and set new trends that bigger studios can’t help but to follow.
We have a history of supporting indie developers at our shows, with an entire track looking at how indie developers can survive and thrive in the competitive landscape of today’s game development, as well as regularly featuring speakers from pioneering indie studios prominently in our schedule.
Just last month, we recognised their fantastic achievements in the Mobile Games Awards, and regularly hold Big Indie Pitch competitions around the world, giving indie developers the chance to pitch their games to some of the industry’s leading experts. And at every Connects, we host fringe events where developers can meet with publishers and investors, as well as offering special rates for indies (tickets are available now at Early Bird prices from as little as $70).
Loading new area… The Big Indie Zone!
Stepping up a gear for 2020, we’re proud to announce a new initiative where you could demo your work in person to the entire games industry at Pocket Gamer Connects Seattle!
The Big Indie Zone has been designed to help indie developers reach investors, publishers and partners. We have offered space as competition prizes in strictly limited numbers at previous events, but we’re now making more space available on the show floor to indie devs than ever before as part of a new programme of activities specifically supporting indies.
Each table in the expo area is an opportunity to showcase your current or recent work on the global stage, worth $200 - and you could take part FREE!
Even better, this offer is open not only to mobile developers, but thanks to the addition of Big Screen Gaming and The Big Indie Pitch (PC / Console Edition), we are now also looking for PC and Console developers to showcase their games to the global video game industry.
It’s an amazing chance to get your games in front of some of the most important and influential games professionals from around the world.
- One display table in the Big Indie Zone, inc two chairs and one power socket
- Two standard conference passes
- Access to all conference content
- Access to the Global Connects Party
- Access to all non-exclusive/invitation-only fringe events
