Unreal Challenge: Creep It Real–winners announced!

December 1, 2022
Our second Unreal Challenge ran throughout October. In this challenge, we encouraged the community to create a short 10-60 second video showcasing their world-building abilities with a focus on both level design and environment design. This challenge was not just about aesthetics, but aimed to inspire worldbuilding within interactive experiences. 

We received hundreds of beautifully built entries to the Unreal Challenge: Creep It Real in two categories–Individual and Student. With this challenge, we have also trialed the Community Recognition Award where the community votes for their peer favorite. 
 
Without further ado…*drumroll*
