GDC Europe organizers have announced Microsoft will host two sessions titled “Be What’s Next: Microsoft’s Commitment to Indie Success” and “Building Tomorrow’s Blockbuster Today Across Phones, Tablets, and PCs.”

The indie focused talk will be presented by Microsoft evangelist Kristina Rothe and Flaregames’ Gunnar Lott as he discusses how Royal Revolt reached 1 million downloads on Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 in just four weeks.

Microsoft’s second session with Rothe will also include Dlala Studios CEO Anthony James Grand-Scrutton, where he will discuss how to design, build, and publish a game in the most effective way, as he did with space-based physics adventure Jansky.

GDC Europe 2013 will take August 19-21 alongside gamescom.
