The Death of Tick: Why SkookumScript is revolutionary

Reached the limit of Blueprints?

SkookumScript seamlessly integrates with BPs and:

★ calls scripts and changes code live

★ can outperform nativized BPs

★ makes coding logical time flow a breeze

★ has sophisticated concurrent debugging

★ scales without graphical spaghetti

★ is version control and diff tool friendly

★ allows swapping of code snippets over text

C++ slow to iterate and too bureaucratic?

SkookumScript has a comprehensive C++ API and:

★ compiles instantly

★ updates in real-time on any platform

★ has native game concepts such as concurrency

SkookumScript is lovingly crafted by veteran game devs, battle-tested on AAA titles such as Sleeping Dogs and used in over 100 countries on upcoming AAA and indie games.

★ use as engine plugin (all products - default) or product plugin (single product)

★ dormant mode allows Sk plugin to coexist with non-Sk projects

★ non-Sk projects may still use SkookumIDE

It enables you to query and manipulate any UE4 game as it runs on any platform—without disrupting your existing tools, C++ code or BP graphs. So even if you aren’t looking for a scripting solution now, try our console.
