Industry veteran David Perry will be handed the Development Legend award during the Develop Industry Excellence Awards on July 11. He is to receive the award for the contributions he’s made to the games industry over the last three decades. The Gaikai boss has helped create over 100 titles across 29 platforms, and formed Shiny Entertainment which brought the world Earthworm Jim. “I’m incredibly flattered by this award,” said Perry in response to Develop. “I’m from Great Britain and have incredible respect for the people that have been recognized in previous years. My mother is going to be blown away; she thought she was buying me that first Sinclair ZX81 to do homework on.” [image]
