Twist and Shout: Jagex Wins Big Across The Pond
October 30, 2009
Congratulations to BPR’s favorite UK client! The Jagex team took home a big win last night in London at the 27th annual Golden Joystick Awards – being named the Best UK Developer. For those of you who aren’t aware, Jagex is the company behind the largest MMORPG in the world – RuneScape.
The video games industry was recognized as the fastest growing entertainment medium in the UK. In fact, the Golden Joystick Awards were officially recognized by Guinness World Records as the “World’s Most Popular Video Game Awards.” There were over 1,220,000 votes cast for this year’s nominees.
Looks like there is another name to add to the list of greatness born in the UK: Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Iron Maiden, and Jagex! 🙂
