We’re excited to announce our first ever Unreal Indies Week, which kicks off today and runs until Friday, April 2. Throughout the week, we will be highlighting inspiring indie teams from all around the world and will be sharing their personal passions, struggles, and victories in video game development.
"It is truly an exciting time to be an indie gamedev,” said Epic Evangelist Lead Alan Noon. “The array of tools and resources available to developers for free or at low cost is pretty mind blowing, especially when you consider that you would have to join a larger studio to get access to this type of tech in the past.
Additionally, PC and mobile platforms continue to thrive, and we're still in the early days of a console generation change over. Historically, these generational transitions have served as reset points, presenting real opportunities for indies to innovate and establish themselves for the coming years.
For our first ever Indies Week, we invited a number of innovative developers to share the insights and expertise they have gained along the course of their game development journeys, with the goal of inspiring and informing our global development community."
It is truly an exciting time to be an indie gamedev."
