2015 Develop Awards – Winner of Gaming Production Tool for the Second Year in a Row


Every year, the European games development industry descends upon Brighton—a vibrant coastal town in the south of England—for the annual Develop conference. Two weeks ago, over 1800 developers attended the 2015 event to share their experiences and hear from renowned gurus and indie newcomers. Plus, it was a chance to get up-to-date on the tools and techniques that give game studios the edge they need to succeed in this dynamic and thriving market.

Develop is one of my favorite symposiums in the Perforce events calendar—not only because it’s a fantastic opportunity to meet so many of our customers, but also because it’s host to the Develop Industry Excellence Awards. These awards recognize creativity, teamwork and innovation in the games development industry. One of the great things about the awards is that they are the only peer-voted recognitions for European games developers.

For the second consecutive year, Perforce won the award for the best Production Tool. Just as in 2014, we went up on stage to be presented with a beautiful new plaque that is now gracing the UK office reception.

Equally gratifying, most of the other nominees in our category are either Perforce partners or customers. In fact, across all the award categories12 of the 20 winners use Perforce Helix to build their excellent games. We really appreciate our customers’ support in helping us win this coveted award in consecutive years.

Congratulations to all the winners and here’s to 2016 – I wonder if we can make it a triple whammy by winning for the third year in a row?
