Making games in Unreal Engine

Jens Magnus

Half-day workshop - in English

In this workshop we learn how to make simple games by introducing new gameplay elements to the template games provided by the engine. To do this we will look into:

The Unreal Engine Editor

Programming in Blueprint (Unreal's visual programming language)

Important gameplay classes

The primary focus will, however, be on programming actor behaviours in Blueprint. I hope that after the workshop, you have the tools you need to get creative and make your own small or big games, or maybe even a 3D visualization app.

Unreal Engine 4 is a powerful tool. The engine can be modified, extended and scripted with C++; something we might touch upon if there is time. It supports VR / AR with all mainstream hardware.

Primarily for: Developers

Participant requirements: Somewhat beefy computer with Unreal Engine installed, the editor is heavy. If you are on linux, you will have to build the engine your self.
