UK studio beats London teams Curve and Rocksteady to claim industry glory
They came, they drank their weight in beer, and they were quizzed - and, in the end, Splash Damage proved it was the smartest games developer in London last night.
Developer of upcoming console shooter Brink, Splash Damage triumphed over second placed Curve Studios and third placed Rocksteady after answering eight tough rounds of questions.
The sold out event welcomed 130 leading UK games developers to central London's upmarket Sway Bar. If you want to be there next time, book now to secure your place at the September Develop Quiz.
They and 18 other teams were quizzed on topics like games news, video game characters, vampires, zombies and (seriously) animal scientists. Thanks to our generous sponsors Premier PR and Train 2 Game, the night was a huge success, and everybody enjoyed themselves a great deal.
Splash Damage took home The Develop Quiz spring trophy, a £2,000 Develop ad credit and ample quantities of champagne. The atmosphere was rowdy, the difference between Pavlov's Dog and Schrödinger's Cat was settled once and for all, and a fair few business cards changed hands.
The Develop Quiz is set to return on Wednesday, September 29th, meaning you and your colleagues can come along again – or for the first time – to prove that your team are the most intelligent of games makers in the UK.
