Unreal Engine team beats local rivals for the coveted trophy

Epic Games 2 has won the first ever Newcastle Develop Quiz.

The Unreal Engine experts faced off against 15 other teams from the Northern city, including the likes of Reflections, Eutechnyx, Zerolight, Newcastle University and CCP. They also beat another team from Epic, too, gaining months of bragging rights in the process.

In joint second came the CCP Valkyries and Eutechnyx, followed closely by Epic Games 1, Newcastle Universty and Reflections 2.

The teams battled over question rounds included naming the film from its first line, in the headlines, local produce and the mind baffling book smarts.

Thanks to all the teams that took part and Develop Quiz sponsor Reflections for making the first ever Newcastle Develop Quiz a great success.
