    Well done to them, the Make Something Unreal competition’s a great idea with a great prize. Hope they do something good with it.

    IIRC, Red Orchestra won the previous one and did pretty well. Damnation came second and the commercial version wasn’t pretty.

    The Haunted is a fantastic little game. Better than most Unreal Engine games actually.
