Tim Burrell-SawardFounderMother Ultimate

Tim is an award winning designer and technologist with over a decade of experience of making playful things from hardware, electronics and code. He was a founding member and lead designer at Sensible Object, a "connected play" games studio that made Beasts of Balance (the first tabletop game sold in Apple stores globally) and When in Rome (the first Alexa-enabled boardgame). Sensible Object was acquired by Niantic in 2019. He's currently making Return to Dark Tower with Rob Daviau (Pandemic Legacy) and Isaac Childres (Gloomhaven), a connected tabletop game that raised $4m on Kickstarter and is due for release in 2021. Tim also makes installation art and immersive theatre, including physical visualisations of NASA deep space data exhibited at London's Tate Britain, and a giant talking throne made for a royal palace.
