6:45 – 7:30 Keynote from Mike Bithell, creator BAFTA-award winning Thomas Was Alone

Due to popular demand, Mike Bithell, creator of BAFTA-award winning Thomas Was Alone will deliver a 'from the heart' presentation at this next 'LAUNCH Presents' meet-up (Thursday 6th June)

The initial concept of the game was created during a 24-hour game jam in 2010, while Bithell was working at Blitz Games.

Thomas Was Alone ended up a much larger success than Mike had ever anticipated, and with the revenue he earned from its sales, left his full time job to pursue further indie game development.

Mike will share the tales of his indie trials, tribulations and triumphs from Blitz 'til now covering the following themes:

- What it takes to make an idea a reality

- Lessons not to forget

- What’s next, how to keep the momentum of success and creativity going

7:30 – 8:30 Pizza, beers and networking
