Epic Games has announced its Make Something Unreal competition has returned with Make Something Unreal Live.
Co-sponsored by Train2Game, the event will take place over the course of six months and culminate in a real-time conclusion at Gadget Show Live 2012, which takes place April 11-15 in Birmingham, UK.
The winner of Make Something Unreal Live will receive a commercial Unreal Engine 3 license for iOS.
Winners of the Train2Game and Epic Game Jam November 4-6 at the University of Bedfordshire, will compete in the event next April. In both competitions, all games will be developed for iOS devices using Epic’s UDK.
“We are looking forward to working with Epic Games and Train2Game to bring a completely new element into the Games Zone at GSL 2012,” said Gadget Show Live Event director Matt Hodgins. “A huge number of our visitors are into gaming, and will undoubtedly be excited to see how new games are developed and brought to life at the event.”
“In a mere five days, these developers will kickstart their careers in an intense competition that will ultimately result in one team walking away a professional studio, with a full source Unreal Engine 3 license for iOS in hand,” said Mike Gamble, Epic's European territory manager.
