Is it possible to release a ue4 game for free on a personal website?

Hello I’m a guy with a passion of video games who made his first with UE4. I’m based in Italy and for the moment too many taxes and the opening of a “VAT number” don’t allow me to release it for commercial purposes.

For me the important thing is to make myself known and publish it for free even just to entertain others, cause this project was born for hobby and fun.

I wonder then, is it possible to release it for free on a my personal website in the form of Zip? or if not, publish it for free on Steam? I read that Epic for free projects doesn’t ask for royalties, but do they still have to get the game approved by the staff?

Thank you in advance for your feedback.

You are allowed to release the game for free on your own homepage, and you do not need any approval from Epic. I would recommend also release it on some place like Itch.io.

So at the end is correct that with games released for free (on any platforms) we don’t need to pay royalties to epic? we need to do it only for commercial right?
