The lights are on
Two of gaming's most influential figures will be recognized next month at the 2013 Develop Industry Excellence Awards. Epic Games' founder, CEO, and technical director Tim Sweeney and co-founder and vice president Mark Rein will be inducted into Develop magazine's development hall of fame on July 10.
Under Sweeney and Rein, Epic has made an indelible mark on the industry, not only with its games, but also with the pervasive Unreal Engine. Previous award winners include Peter Molyneux, Ian Livingstone, David Perry, and Phil Harrison.

Too long coming if you ask me.

Very nice. They definitely deserve it, I'd say.
Congrats to Tim and Mark! Well deserved.
Congrats to both of them. They truly deserve it!
Well deserved in my opinion.
Not only did they help usher out the Unreal Engine, but they also single-handedly made the cover based shooter genre a hit. These two definitely deserve it!
