Epic Offering Unreal 4 As Prize In Student Gaming Competition
If you’ve like to get full access to Unreal Engine 4, and you’re a student, you’d best get cracking. Epic has announced the launch of a student gaming contest, Make Something Unreal Live, open to any full-time student currently enrolled in a European university. (Sorry, Americans!) The theme of the inaugural Make Something Unreal Live is “Mendelian inheritance”, (you know, the basis for modern genetics), with contestants asked to create games riffing on that theme. Epic will accept submissions until November 2, 2012.
The winner will receive a commercial license to use Unreal 4, essentially getting something like funding to create their game without restrictions (Unreal 4 can be used for free for noncommercial purposes). So come on, whippersnappers. Get out there and make something based on Mendelian inheritance. Might I suggest Super Mendelian Fraternal Twin Brothers?
