Lauren Ridge and Richard Hinckley show you how to build a Match 3 game using C++ in combination with Blueprints. In this first part of the series, you’ll get an overview of the game - including how to design your project utilizing both C++ and Blueprints - as well as starting to implement some of the base classes.

Feel free to ask any questions on the topic in the thread below, and remember, while we try to give attention to all inquiries, it’s not always possible to answer everyone’s questions as they come up. This is especially true for off-topic requests, as it’s rather likely that we don’t have the appropriate person around to answer. Thanks for understanding!
I will definitely be tuning in for this one, for obvious reasons I will also make sure to let my customers know about this, as it may help them out.
Will this include level progression/selection by any chance? I had a customer ask me about this recently. Actually, what will be created specifically, only the match-3 logic or also other related aspects such as UI, score tracking, special game pieces, etc?
Thanks for the heads up Jeff. I think I have seen that series ( but I’ll have a look again ).
I’ve been thinking about this a bit and keep coming to a dead end conclusion that teaching C++ via UE4 is not very tractable,sadly !
There’s too much ‘engine’ in the way.
William did a commendable job in his book but it felt rushed.
Perhaps we can rag on Zack to attempt this :P. He’s an Ex-buzz veteran and could bring some of that ‘from the ground up’ treatment to this project.
If done well, this could be a great way to teach C++ Academically.
