Develop:Brighton returned to the South Coast this month from the 12th-14th of July, bringing some of the gaming world’s biggest talent with it.

A key event for Develop:Brighton was the Big Indie Pitch, where indie developers had the opportunity to get their games in front of journalists and members of the mobile industry in a speed-dating style competition. Developers got 4 minutes, in a Dragons Den style set-up, demonstrating their newest project to industry influencers.

16 games were presented and the judges saw a high quality of development. The 12 judges decided that Tiny Striker 2, by Sussex Innovation Centre members Fat Fish Games was a worthy winner – a swipe up to kick game where players flick a football round the wall of defenders to pick up coins.

The judges described the game as “slick and fun to play.” As well as prizes for winning the Big Indie Pitch, Fat Fish received valuable feedback on the game to incorporate into their soft launch.
