Rush of studios and industry groups book tables for May 11 event

The Develop Quiz returns in May this year, and two UK firms have signed up to sponsor the London gathering.

Avatar Games Recruitment has lent its support as Round Sponsor, while Jagex has registered as Joint Headline Sponsor.

Now a popular regular feature in the Develop calendar, the Quiz gives the UK dev industry an opportunity to find out which studio boasts the most intelligent staff.

The next event takes place on May 11th at Sway Bar, Holborn, London and will see 20 teams of five answering questions on subjects ranging from games to science.
 
The event, which has a free bar and food, sells out every year.
 
Networking opportunities come with the chance to let your hair down and argue with other teams about general knowledge. Attendees also have a chance to meet the creative teams behind blockbuster titles Batman Arkham Asylum, Shogun 2, RuneScape and more.

Teams already booked include Rocksteady, Big Head Games, Peppermint P, Blitz Games Studios, Spilt Milk Studios, Harbottle & Lewis, Wave Studios, Creative Assembly and two tables from Jagex.

Contact Kathryn.Humphrey@intentmedia.co.uk to book one of the final team places.

The quiz is again devised by Develop staff, of which no studio has yet to get a perfect score from. The highest scoring team will get will get £2,000 ad credit in Develop print or online, plus a bottle of champagne for each team member.
 
Second place prize is lunch with the Develop editorial team, plus champers for each team member. And the team in third place will get a bottle of bubbly each too.
It costs just £219 to enter a team of five. This covers participation in the quiz, free bar and food for all five members of the team.
