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!
Ludicious – Zürich Game Festival is now accepting submissions for the competitions of its third edition. Two prizes with a total value of € 12’000 will be awarded at the next edition of the festival, which will take place from January 26 to 29, 2017 at the Zeughaushof in Zurich, Switzerland. Submission deadline is October 2, 2016. For its «International Competition» and «Student Competition» the festival is looking for the most innovative games by emerging studios and start-ups. Swiss games can also be entered for the «SGDA Swiss Game Awards», which the Swiss Game Developers Association (SGDA) will award to the best games from Switzerland.
«International Competition», «Student Competition» and «SGDA Swiss Game Awards»
International game developers can enter their projects for one of two competitions: Either the «International Competition», with its «Ludicious Award» (€ 8’000), honoring excellence in cutting edge game design, or the «Student Competition», which supports the next generation of innovative game designers with the «Outstanding Talent Award» (€ 4’000). The SGDA will once again hold the «SGDA Swiss Game Awards» as a partner event to Ludicious. Submissions for the Ludicious Competitions as well as the «SGDA Swiss Game Awards» can be entered via Ludicious.
