Aussie Devs Crack The Top 100

We know that Blizzard just got named Develop magazine’s “most bankable” studio in its annual Top 100 list. But did any Australian studios make the cut?

Two did!

At a respectable #93 is Blue Tongue, creator of Kotaku favourite De Blob. Blue Tongue ranked ahead of studios such as Dimps (Street Fighter IV, Dragon Ball Z: Budokai series) and Intelligent Systems (Paper Mario, Advance Wars, Fire Emblem).

But even more impressive was the showing of Krome Studios. At #41, Krome placed above such illustrious developers as Crystal Dynamics, Firaxis, Crytek and even Bungie. Krome released Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (Wii, PS2, PSP), The Clone Wars: Lightsaber Duels (Wii) and Scene It? Box Office Smash (360) last year.

“Develop 100 ranks the world’s most bankable games development studios based on a variety of key criteria including sales data, critical success and industry standing.” And as an annual list it’ll favour developers who shipped product in that particular year.
