Last week the Develop Awards happened in Brighton, UK and it was a glitzy gaming packed evening, with many awards, laughs and some UNREAL shade wearing skills (the puns write themselves).
Some winners included:
New Games IP:
Horizon Zero Dawn
There were many nomination categories, which meant a lot of reasons to celebrate with an array of winners from the AAA and indie gaming scene. Though without a doubt the major winners of the night, least in numbers of nominations, were Guerrilla Games for Horizon Zero Dawn.
The Develop Legends award went to Brenda and John Romero, which elicited the biggest applause of the night. Both made very heartwarming and passionate speeches and Brenda even begun hers speaking very impressive Irish. Both Romero’s are incredibly inspirational for anyone, any age or location who has a passion for video games and wants to get involved in the industry.
