Kevin Beimers runs Holywood-based indie video game studio Italic Pig. For the past seven years, he and his incredibly talented & attractive team have been building high-concept irreverent entertainment for all platforms, including a quantum physics platformer puzzler, a paint-based renaissance romp, a metaphysical VR elevator simulator, and a dinosaur-ranching social sim. With 17 employees, Italic Pig is the largest indie studio in Northern Ireland, and holds the title of Studio of the Year for two years running. Kevin is the former Chair of Games NI. He is also on the steering committees for the Belfast Media Festival and Digital Cities Belfast, the creator of Idea Jam and Run For The Border, a STEM ambassador, and a regular volunteer at various coding clubs, robotics clubs and career events. Despite all this, he still found the time last year to write and produce a primary school Star Wars musical, which he will gladly tell you about if you ask.
