The Big Indie Pitch at Games Industry Conference in Poznan, Poland, which took place alongside Poland Game Arena, was yet another exciting opportunity for developers from around the world to show off their hot new games, and maybe even take home one of the top three prizes.

For those who don’t know, the Big Indie Pitch is an event run by Pocket Gamer for smaller developers to show off their wares to a panel of eager and knowledgeable judges.

This time round, Digital Melody's Runventure took first place, with second place going to TinyTomb and third to Arcade Plane.

You know the drill by now - here are the 15 entrants for your reading pleasure. 


By Digital Melody
iOS, Android

Digital Melody took first place at the Big Indie Pitch at GIC for its excellent platformer Runventure. Taking inspiration from classic platformers and Indiana Jones, the game condenses the experience into one touch control for running and jumping, nailing the easy to learn yet hard to master experience.


By 36
Android, iOS

In second place, 36's action adventure game TinyTomb, in which players must find lost treasure, fend off evil foes, and uncover the secrets of your character's quest.

The impressive voxel style, unique game design and personal stories of the characters all come together to make this a promising title we'll be sure to keep an eye on.

ARcade Plane

By Radek Czekaj
iOS, Android

Radek Czekaj's augmented reality game ARcade Plane was enough to impress judges and earn it third spot at the BIP.

The game mixes the AR experience with an arcade-style flying game, in which players must capture stars while avoiding crashing into the emerging city below.

Extra Color

By Evil Indie Games

Extra Color is a deceptively tricky game that sees you swapping between one of two colours to blend in with incoming walls of colour. Patterns get faster and weirder as your score goes up, so you can never get too comfortable.
