GDC Pitch Is Back, Live and In-Person, for GDC 2022

Get ready to pitch your game in front of a live audience: No pressure! The Game Developers Conference is thrilled to announce that GDC Pitch, the popular game pitch-off, will be back in-person for GDC 2022.

GDC Pitch is a special event designed to help select participants practice their game-pitching skills. This year, five studios will solicit their game in front of a live audience—followed by questions, advice, and feedback. Then, the judges will declare the day's "Best Pitch" and award two free GDC 2023 All-Access passes. 

Participants are selected from GDC Play, an interactive showcase for innovative projects from emerging and independent game makers. It's a rare opportunity for developers to hone their skills to make a great pitch, while also getting their ideas in front of an enthusiastic (and helpful) group. If your studio is interested in joining GDC Pitch, inquire about GDC Play here

GDC Pitch will once again be hosted by funding advisor Jason Della Rocca, and takes place on March 23 and March 24 (Wednesday and Thursday) during GDC 2022 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
