Your guide to all of the new features and functions for the industry's leading development site

Brand new look for Develop Online

As you might have noticed, Develop has just overhauled its web presence – and we’ve even got a new URL, too.

Now accessible at, the sleek upgrade reinforces the site’s position as the leading news source for the global games development community, featuring breaking stories, industry comment, interviews with leading names, company spotlights and in-depth profiles.

Our new website also brings with it a number of new features, including a customisable news feed page, an improved comment system, and a blog written by both Develop’s on-staff writers and our many industry contributors.

News content is also now grouped into categories specific for each major games development territory and subject, so readers can find news relevant to their region or interest.

Develop Online also includes a directory of leading games development companies, and digital downloads of our previous print editions.

The site also boasts a new look for its email alerts, which keep you abreast of all the latest news. They’re available as either as a Daily Digest, which includes a summary of the day’s news, or a Newsflash for breaking news. If you’re not signed up already, you can do so here.

"The thing that differentiates Develop from everyone else is that it is 100 per cent targeted at the sector," commented publisher Stuart Dinsey.

"It is written for developers and, very often, by developers. We are powerful in print and online. This latest investment in a new site will further extend our global reach and market leading position."

Develop’s online editor Rob Crossley, the former UK online editor for Edge, is the main point of contact for the new site. He can be reached through email on or via telephone at the Intent Media offices on 01992 535 646.

The Develop site also offers an increased number of advertising and sponsorship opportunities. Get in touch by sending an email to for more details.
