Wednesday 13th July 2016, Hilton Brighton Metropole


Develop hosts the biggest awards night in the game development industry calendar, running alongside Develop:Brighton, on Wednesday 13th July with over 500 people attending representing over 170 companies from around the world.

While there are a number of awards in this industry, the Develop Awards are the only peer-voted prizes for UK and European games developers which focus purely on creativity, teamwork, and inspiring innovation. Not marketing. Not hype.

Firmly established as the unrivalled badge of excellence for the games sector, these prestigious awards were launched to raise standards across the industry by showcasing top class performance and innovation.

Today, with 21 categories recognising the best in the games development business, The Develop Awards remains one of the “must attend” events in the games calendar with the great and good of the market descending on Brighton’s Hilton Metropole Hotel for a memorable evening.

Hideo Kojima will receive this year’s Development Legend prize at the Develop Industry Excellence Awards on Wednesday, July 13th.

The award recognises his decades of visionary game design – most notably through his flagship Metal Gear Solid series, but also on Zone of the Enders, Boktai and his early titles such as Snatcher and Policenauts.
