A further five companies confirmed for September's meeting of minds

Five extra games companies have signed up teams for the next Develop Quiz, which kicks off in just a few weeks.

The Wednesday September 14th event will bring together teams from across the industry to the Sway Bar in Holborn, London. On the night, entrants will have the chance to flaunt their brainpower through several question rounds on subjects ranging from games to science.
 
At the end of the night, the first placed team will take home the Develop Quiz trophy, as well as £2,000 in advertising credit in Develop and champagne for each member.

Second place wins lunch and an interview with the Develop team, as well as champagne for each member. Third place takes champagne for each member.

It costs £219 for a team of five to enter. Email kathryn.humphrey@intentmedia.co.uk to book your place.

There are still sponsorship opportunities available too. Email alex.boucher@intentmedia.co.uk for details.

12 teams are already polishing up on their knowledge. There's Bossa Studios, Curve Studios, Datascope, Peppermint PR, Splash Damage, Universally Speaking, Wave Studios, Spilt Milk Studios, Media Molecule, Rocksteady Games, Indigo Pearl and Future Games of London.

Earlier in the year UK powerhouse Jagex emerged as Develop Quiz winners, taking home £2,000 in Develop Advert Space as well as the treasured Develop Quiz trophy, and a Qualcomm dual-core Snapdragon mobile development platform (worth over $1,300) as provided by the May event's sponsors Qualcomm

“The Develop Quiz was a sell-out success in May and it was great to see so much UK talent show up,” said Intent Media managing director Stuart Dinsey.

“It was an occasion for developers to let their hair down but also network and meet others in their field.”
