Using the #PitchYaGame, thousands of indie developers tweeted out pitches for their games on November 2 as part of a social media contest, and the results are astounding.
The hashtag came about as part of the #PitchYaGame Awards, an initiative founded by Liam Twose to have indie game creators get their moment in the spotlight and potentially win a cash prize, should their pitch be selected. The #PitchYaGame Awards started in 2020, with the most recent award period having concluded back in June 2021.
Well yesterday was a blast! Estimating around 1100-1300 pitches during #PitchYaGame 😍
What an incredible turnout!
Remember pitching is a journey, not just a one-off thing & everyone that pitched; the key takeaway is that you just levelled up one of the most important skills. pic.twitter.com/Em5tn0hCW7
