Hey, gamers! I'm writing on behalf of the Made in NY Media Center by IFP. We are hosting our first ever Game Pitch Night at our space in DUMBO, Brooklyn on Thursday, August 23, and submissions close TOMORROW!

Five amazing, DIY game projects will be selected to present a five minute-long pitch to a panel of industry judges, and to our live audience.

Anya Combs, Kickstarter
James Seetal, IGDA, NYC Chapter
Noelle Posados, Killer Snails
Navid Khonsari, iNK Stories

Jury Prize includes: Three (3) months of discounted membership, mentorship opportunities and networking opportunities from and with Media Center gaming professionals; One (1) mentorship session with Anya Combs of Kickstarter; One (1) spotlight in the Partner News section of IGDA NYC's monthly newsletter; and one (1) hour-long mentorship session with James Seetal of IGDA NYC.

Audience Choice Award includes: One (1) hour-long private coaching session that includes playtesting and feedback as well as information on production, such as resources on manufacturing, importing and pricing with Jessica Ochoa Hendrix and Noelle Posadas of Killer Snails.


Projects will be selected to pitch, and evaluated for prizes, based on:

– Innovative and interesting concept and approach
– Clearly defined objective(s) and rules, understood in brief and in detail
– Creative approach to artwork, production values, etc.
– Fun and sense of theme/purpose, i.e. “Why should anyone play this game?”

We welcome game projects of all kinds: we’re open to game apps, tabletop games, experiential games, video games… or concepts that are story-driven, abstract, strategy-based, games of chance, individual player, multi-player… There are no restrictions on specific content or form, so long as it’s engaging, clear to understand, and (of course!) has a strong element of fun.

If you don't have a game to pitch, we hope you'll still join us for food, drinks, networking, and maybe a game or two!
