Unreal Engine takes to the Southeastern US

By Amanda Bott

Christian Allen, North American UE evangelist, is taking to the skies on an Epic trip through the Southeastern US to connect with several different groups in the Unreal development community.


Christian will share different ways developers can utilize Unreal Engine Marketplace content to their advantage including prototyping, using assets as the building blocks for game features, and building out their project with game-ready, high-quality assets. The session will be done in ParaChess, the project he created to demonstrate various Blueprint scripting techniques using the free Paragon assets released by Epic to the Unreal development community.

Q&A will be featured at the end of each event on topics such as Unreal development, careers in the games industry, and indie game development.


The first stop is on his tour is Lafayette, Louisiana, just a couple hours outside of New Orleans. The Academy of Interactive Entertainment USA will host his session on February 22.
