We're just weeks away from the 2019 Game Developers Conference, and organizers want to let you know about the courageous developers who will be participating in the popular GDC Pitch event at GDC Play this year!

If you've never been to GDC Play, know that it's a showcase for some of the most interesting emerging/independent developers and their games. GDC Pitch is a special event where select GDC Play devs hone their game-pitching skills in front of a panel of expert judges -- as well as a live audience! 

This year GDC Pitch will take place Wednesday and Thursday (March 20th and 21st) during GDC 2019, and it will again be hosted by Jason Della Rocca of investment platform Execution Labs. 10 selected dev teams will each be offered pitch prep and training, then get 5 minutes to pitch, followed by questions, advice, and feedback from the judges.

Each day the judges will declare a "Best Pitch" and award each a complimentary All Access pass to GDC 2019. It's always an exciting event, so leave some time in your GDC 2019 schedule to drop by and check it out!

Here's the lineup for this year's GDC Pitch
