Saga Posted February 3, 2007 Share Posted February 3, 2007 Perhaps this is better news for you. This is from Jeff Morris and was posted today. It seems they may have demo out in summer and 1 month later they will release Unreal 3 and everything that come with it. Also, it looks as though the "Make something Unreal" contest will occur again for $$$ Just think a great mod to play and the possibility of making a few bucks too. GI: What about the editor? Will you be shipping the editor alongside the boxed product? Morris: Absolutely. It?s such a great element of UT that sort of hard to promote, because it?s not sexy graphics, but man it allows people to prototype their ideas without learning C++. Unreal Engine 3 made that a lot easier with UnrealKismit, like Visio, essentially, and it was also great for our own purposes, because universities are using it in their game-development programs, so people right out of university know our tech. They also gain from that as well. And damn if the mainstream press never gets tired of ?Little Johnny?s mom thought he was wasting his life playing video games until he got a $50,000 check from Epic for his Make Something Unreal contest entry.? The Wall Street Journal just loves that story, and so we get great press out of it as well. It?s not like we made the editor as an item for the back of the box. It?s the exact same tool we use to create the game, and that?s great from a QA point of view, in that we don?t have to exhaustively test it, because if it?s bugging us it?s going to bug the customer. http://www.gameinformer.com/News/Story/200...3054.htm?Page=2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
