With virtual reality becoming an ever greater part of our industry, Steel Media launched a brand new developer competition: The VR Indie Pitch, and now this competition is en-route to San Francisco.
Much like The Very Big Indie Pitch, which will be happening at the same time, the VR Indie Pitch will be a developer pitching competition open to all types of independent developers working on virtual reality games for any platform.
The VR Indie Pitch will take place as a part of VR Connects San Francisco 2017 on June 27th & 28th.
The event is simple. The unique speed dating format gives each developer ten minutes with our panel of experts, meaning entrants will get real feedback from the event.
This event works slightly differently from our Big Indie Pitch format though, with pitchers given ten minutes to present their game to the judges.
Judges will include a mix of industry experts, VR developers, and leading journalists.
We'll also reward the top developers with a share of a $7000 promotional prize that can be used across Steel Media's range of websites.
But how do I enter?
Not sure if your game's eligible? Well:
- You can pitch games for any type of VR, whether it be mobile, PC or console.
- 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 are out too.
- Your game doesn’t have to be completed, as we welcome games in development.
- Deadline for entries is midnight on June 18th (entry details below).
Sound good? In order to pitch your game at the inaugural VR Indie Pitch, simply head over to the Pocket Gamer Business Network and REGISTER YOUR GAME with us.
We’ll then get in touch closer to the event and confirm whether you have received a place on the pitch.
Oh and if you're not sure what to expect, then you can check out all the epicness from this year's VR Indie Pitch @ VR Connects London 2017.
NOTE: Shorlisted entries receive TWO FREE passes to PGC San Francisco 2017 & VR Connects San Francisco 2017. Non-shortlisted entries still qualify for a discounted ticket.
What’s more, regardless of whether you’re pitching or simply just spectating, don't forget your business cards as they’ll more than enough chance to get in some valuable networking.
