PR outfit's company-spanning team clinches victory at last night's clash of knowledge

Dead Good Media last night emerged victorious as winners of the tri-annual Develop Quiz.

The ever-popular event saw teams gather in London to demonstrate their brainpower, and knowledge of topics both gaming related and from beyond the realm of the development industry.

In what is becoming a Develop Quiz tradition, a close finish saw Dead Good Media secure 53 points, while both Side and Creative Assembly reached 52 points, meaning a tense tie-breaker for second place, in which CA triumphed.

Defending champions Firefly Studios managed joint fourth place this year, putting them in a group of the six top teams spread across a three-point difference.

Second-placed Creative Assembly; just don't mention Voyager


Teams battled it out over topics including ‘Celebrity Deaths', 'Console Close-Ups', 'Video Game Hats', 'Fictional Companies from the Movies' and 'Gaming Acronyms'.

Thanks to all the teams, and the quiz’s round sponsors UKIE, ARM and Dead Good Media for making the night yet another great success.

The next Develop Quiz will take place late-January 2014. If you want to join in on the fun, book now and contact Kathryn.Humphrey@intentmedia.co.uk to avoid disappointment.
