Game Dev Heroes 2019 Wrap Up

Game Dev Heroes 2019 showcase

Year Two of the Game Dev Heroes Awards, bringing hundreds of people together to recognise and celebrate the work of their peers and colleagues across the games industry.

Game Dev Heroes was created to recognise and celebrate the work of the people behind the scenes of the games industry. We want these unsung heroes to be able to have their contributions recognised, from brilliant developers and resourceful support staff, to inspiring management and positive role models across all areas of gamedev.

We had 550 spectacular nominations for 2019, with our awards event held on the 9th July, coinciding with this year’s Develop:Brighton conference. You can find out more about all of our heroes at
