The Unreal Engine has recently been announced as completely free to download and tinker with. Sure, if you put out a product they’ll want a percentage, but for many MANY of us, digital piracy would just simply come to a grinding halt if more software companies used this model. I realize many of them simply cant, I mean how would you track what model was created in what software, then used in what product but damn… I wish they would!
Anyway, download Unreal and make more awesome environments for me to explore in VR. The “Paris Apartment” above is simply amazing (though a bit slow on my machine) and I’m thirsting for more! If you haven’t seen it yet, keep in mind that this is all a real-time environment. You can walk around in it and yes, it looks as good as the video.
