What’s an indie game dev to do when the market for project funding appears upside down compared to a mere 12 months ago? Pitching and securing funding is a slog and not for the faint of heart. But it gets easier when you can walk in knowing what to expect from the process, are prepared for the inevitable curveballs thrown your way, and are informed of what NOT to do when it comes to lining up funding for your projects. Developers from across the indie dev landscape share their tales from the pitching and funding trenches to help you better navigate the often rocky road to project funding.


Attendees will learn best practices for how to approach the process of pitching for project funding based on the firsthand experiences of fellow indie game devs.

Intended Audience

Developers who don’t have a track record of smash hits to their name and are seeking funding for their projects.
