Indie Devs Come Up Trumps At Develop Awards
In case you weren’t aware, the annual Develop awards took place last night, and it saw 17 different companies score major games industry accolades. Over 550 of the global games development elite were on hand last night to see the hottest studios in Europe take home key prizes at the Develop Industry Excellence Awards.
