First showcased by Epic Games in 1998, Unreal Engine has become the “world’s most successful videogame engine”. Apart from creating blockbuster games like Fortnite, it is now also used as a 3D graphic design platform in other industries for the development of immersive content, including VR and high production entertainment such as the TV series “The Mandalorian”.
In this program, students learn the basic controls to manipulate objects in scenes, utilising in-engine video tutorials that allow them to learn at their own pace. After grasping the basics, students can choose to explore the areas of the game engine that most take their interest, such as the physics system, platforming, and character creation.
In the afternoon session, students map out a scene for their players using more traditional methods, then try to bring it to life with assets in Unreal Engine.
