Obviously, this isn't exactly insightful and leaves me scratching my head wondering what I did wrong.
My game pitch was well presented with clear explanations of the concept, gameplay, marketing and development effort. The pitch was well written, backed up with concept art by a professional game concept artist. I consulted VR game publishers for feedback on my pitch and received positive responses. Here is one such response:
Many thanks for the game pitch, it does look really great - casual, nice art style - could be a superb VR title.
In my pitch I introduced the team who would be working on the game which includes 4 in-house , full-time developers with a history of producing VR/AR apps and games.
I'm obviously disappointed that they haven't approved my game, but I just can't understand why there is no reason given! Why would I, or any other indie developer want to submit more ideas? It takes time and effort to put one of these pitches together! I get that Oculus wants to make the Quest store a curated experience with great content from big studios. The bar is obviously high... but how is anyone supposed to make that leap successfully without any feedback on your failed attempts?
