Steel Media regularly holds indie Pitch events throughout the year. These are events where developers can pitch a game they are currently developing, to a panel of judges. If you are in the top three then you win various prizes that are meant to help you out with your game’s launch. However, a few times a year there are also Big Indie Pitch events and these are much bigger versions of the regular indie pitches. This means the prizes are also bigger.

Over the past month or so we’ve been talking about the hit indie game from 2D Boy called World of Goo and that it would be coming to Android. In fact last week we mentioned that it would be arriving today and 2D Boy hasn’t disappointed us! World of Goo is now available on the Android Market.
While the release of this side-scrolling multi-level shooter from developers Alientrap is still a little ways off, they have announced that Capsized will be coming to Android.
