Zoe Mode London was last night toasting its success as it emerged victorious at the Develop Pub Quiz.

Hosted at the AKA Bar in central London, the Develop Pub Quiz - kindly sponsored by Perforce, Blue GFX, amBX and Qantm College - saw over 100 industry professionals converge to network, drink and pit their knowledge against their contemporaries for the coveted Quiz Champions trophy and, perhaps most importantly, eternal bragging rights.

Zoe Mode London beat twenty others to the top spot, where it tied with business affairs consultancy firm Sarassin - leaving the final verdict in the lands of the assembled industry crowd through a Lips sing-off, who voted almost unanimously for Zoe Mode London's epic performance.

Other studios present at the event included Curve, Firefly, Splash Damage, AirPlay and Big Head Games, along with recruiters OPM and Amiqus, tech firms Perforce, amBX and Zeus Technology, and the rest: Microsoft, Peppermint P, Sheridans, Bad Management, Air Edel, Mediatonic, High Score Productions and BlueGFX.
