Hi Elliott, This is a great breakdown and very generous in sharing your process and insights, you came a long way from the vending machine days!
Are you planning on releasing the UE4 project to the public? Or only builds? I'd love to play around with it in the editor if possible!
A couple of hours ago at Brighton during the annual Develop Awards ceremony, Unreal Engine 4 received the title of the best engine. CD Projekt RED got the title of the best indie studio and more.
Develop Awards is a pretty important international event in games industry. There’s about 500 people attending representing 170 companies from around the world. Overall there were about 21 categories with lots of wonderful nominees. Unreal Engine 4 was nominated for the Engine of the year and successfully got this title. Among other service providers on the list of winners we’d like to mention Perforce Software, Audiokinetic, Testology.
There’s a number of other big names on the winner list as well. CD Projekt Red was named the ‘Studio of the Year’ and the best ‘Independent Studio’. Hideo Kojima got a title of the ‘Development Legend’. The lovely Devolver Digital became the ‘Publishing Hero’. Sam Barlow – the creator of ‘Her Story’ got the title of best ‘Micro Studio’.
You can get the full list of winners here. Congrats to Unreal and all finalists!
