I have awesome news for you guys! Epic Games backed Shooter Tutorial for 14,000$ in their Epic Games Educational Dev Grants!
This is good time to share some details about the future.
First Milestone: Finish ShooterTutorial.
First goal is to finish ShooterTutorial in current form. Freestyle live development blog explaining step by step what I’m doing.
I’m aware that some of the tutorials can be hard for beginners…that’s why I decided to create a e-book for people that are starting their game development trip.
Second Milestone: Book for Beginners.
When ShooterTutorial will be finished I will start working on “Learning UE4 Blueprint by Example” e-book. Which will focus more on game development overall and how to use Blueprints to create shooter game. Book will use only free assets and will be friendly for beginners. It will feature exactly the same game as I’m doing here but it will be written from scratch taking knowledge that I have learned.
There is still lot of stuff do to in ShooterTutorial before it can be finished:
- Closed demo (this will happen really soon and will be iterated couple of times)
- Endless mode,
- Weapon / Character upgrades,
- Steam Support,
- VR Support,
- Hi-End mobile Support,
Hope I shared some light here and you guys will like the e-book idea!
