How are you all on this fine morning/evening/night?
Basically at the moment, I’m working on a few projects to be released for free to the community; Think of how the free Epic content works - But created by community members for other community members - To help teach the ropes of all the cools things that Unreal Engine can do.
I am currently working on a Point and Click prototype and a Horror First Person Shooter game ala Amnesia: The Dark Descent. The horror project is almost complete and the Point and Click project will follow after.
Basically, I’m coming to you beautiful people now and asking is anyone has some spare time to create example games for other users to help teach the community all about Unreal Engine 4’s features.
I believe this is an awesome way to teach the community about features; To let them rip projects apart and learn how it was all done.
If nobody wants to help, that’s fine. My projects will be done soon and the relevant articles, free books and content will be upload to the Unreal Engine wiki.
I’d love to get more people working on this idea with me, that would be awesome. If not, stay tuned for my free projects community!
Here’s a little preview of the Horror Project, here’s what you’ll learn:
Casting to the Player Controller
Levels system (Breaking a giant map into smaller chunks for performance)
UMG Menus (Main Menu, Options Menu, Pause Menu .etc)
And a lot more!
All the projects I create will also include models, animations and Materials that people can rip and use in their own projects - Commercial or otherwise!
And for people who don’t know about me:
My name is Ryan Shah and I write Free Books for the Unreal Community to help teach the newer (And even the more skilled!) members of the community just how powerful and awesome Unreal Engine 4 is!
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this,
Lots of Love,
- Ryan S, Project Lead @ Kitatus Studios
