    I've absolutely no idea about programming, 3D work, etc. But I'm getting Unreal right now and I have no idea how I'm going to do anything, but I'm going to do something. Thank you, Epic Games.
    Have fun

      I was mostly subscribed to show support. Is there a way to still donate? Maybe you can have a system where if you pay you may get faster official support.

        Thanks!

          I would be nice for Epic to clarify about $3k per quarter thing. Does it mean that each quarter separate billing cycle? For example, if I make $5k first quarter and $2k next quarter and $3k the following quarter, would I only pay 5% off $5k gross (or $2k gross?) for the first quarter only? Or since I made (hypothetically) $5k gross in the first quarter, I have to pay 5% for the first quarter and on ?

            Yep, that's how it works. You'd only pay for that first quarter and only on the $2,000 after the first $3,000. You can theoretically make $12,000 a year without paying the royalty if you made exactly $3,000 every quarter. Let me know if you have any questions

              I would like to say Thank You for this. One of the problems I was thinking about was 'How is a game going to have modding support when the tools to easily make mods are behind a pay wall?' Thank you kindly.

                Please keep in mind the fact that those games are played on youtube by let's players who have millions of subscribers. So those games are getting their own "advertisement" and are being showed to millions of people worldwide. Same thing happened to minecraft.

                That's why so many AAA games were developed with unreal engine:

                But some of this community here (not all of course) should really put down they fanboy-hats. Saying Unity is bad is just ridiculous and doesn't let you look like someone who is serious about game developing. Especially if you don't specify why Unity is bad.

                But whatever floats your boat.
                Okay... No comment on that

                  Is there a listing showing all the games that were showcased on this reel?
                  Thanks.

                        I just spent a couple of days with Unity 5.0 and it is a lot better than Unity 4.0, performance was much better I must admit even loaded full of post. BUT Unreal Engine has so many more tools and just looks absolutely beautiful even if it is a little rough around the edges, it's the promise of what can be and no limitations which as a developer which makes it a miracle.

                        We're spoilt for choice now I must admit, but with Epic's amazing support and the engine ever improving at a rapid pace it's still in my number 1 spot. Although I will have a sneaky peak at source 2 whenever it peeps it's head.

                          I have had my eye on UE for years now. It's amazing how far everything has come in UE4.

                          Even though I fully agree that the 19 dollars-a-month was affordable, for a game design hobbyist like myself, I wanted to be able to learn on my free time, but the commitment to a monthly payment kept me from doing so. To students, or simply, any young kid with a computer who wants to learn, free access means everything.

                          I look forward to UE4's future.

                          Thank you everyone at Epic!

                                What about codes (from game jam) which I didn't redeem? Will you give other prize?
                                I'm also interested in the use for the codes, any new info on this?
