Game Pitch Championship Judges

The Game Pitch Championship is a practice competition for indies seeking to improve their project pitching skills.

Check out our three judges and catch them and our indie game pitches live on the Main Stage this weekend.

Pitching a game is all about turning an idea into a launched project. From developing solid gameplay mechanics to creating a budget, a pitch is the speech that can fund and eventually launch your project.

Our 3 wonderful judges will be scoring and providing feedback to our 6 contestants. You can catch them pitch in the preliminaries today from 12PM–3:30PM on the Panels stage in Hall E. Or watch the Finals on Saturday on the Main Stage at 2PM.
