By now you should feel super confident in your game idea, so while it’s fresh in your mind, create a short sharp video pitch to sell your game idea to the masses!
Using all of the content you’ve created over the past 3 missions it’s time to fuse it all together into a nice, easy to digest package. We’ll be displaying all of your pitches together on the Game Changers site as resources for past, present and future Game Changers to enjoy.
We know what you’re thinking: “What does a video pitch even look like?” Well, fortunately for you, we’ve got a great example right here:
Your task for this quest is to create a video pitch that’s between 2 – 3 minutes in length. The pitch needs to answer the following questions, in whichever order best suits your pitches style:
- What is your Game?
Use your game proposal from the first mission and adapt it into a script for your pitch. Use it to inform your audience about your game concept.
- How do you play it?
Refer to the rulebook, storyboards, and designs that you created for the second mission to describe how your game is played, what it’s like to play, and what players will learn by taking part. If your game solves a specific problem, do you best to explain this to your audience as clearly as possible.
- Introduce your team
Using media and feedback from mission 3 explain how you’re going to make your game, and if you’re team consists of more than one person, introduce member and explain their role within the team as you head into the Game Sprint.
Finally, take a few moments to summarise your pitch to conclude your video.
Be clear, be concise, and above all, be confident in your delivery. Treat your pitch like it’s a video for a Kickstarter campaign, just without the pledges for money! It’s important that your video is engaging, so learn your lines, pitch in from of your friends and colleagues to really help to polish your delivery. Then, when you’ve got your pitch dead on, hit that record button!
Once your pitch is complete, upload it to YouTube, Vimeo, or your video platform of choice, make it publicly viewable and share it in the GC community with the #GCpitch hashtag.
