Unreal Engine 4 Project: 2D Platformer Runner

Intro

This is a very small project I created with the goal to help those new to Unreal Engine 4 get started fast. I’m trying to keep the game as simple as possible yet complete so that it can be considered a “full game” and not just a demo.

Here are the features:

  • Free
  • Blueprints only (No C++ programming required)
  • High quality artwork.
  • Functional GUI system using UMG: Landing screen, level selector, in game pause screen, end of level etc
  • 20 Levels

I will update this post as I make progress. If the post gets too big I will break it down for easier reading.

Games Using Unreal Engine 4

Intro

I know I’m not the only one who does this. I like to see what other people have done with a particular tool.

Since UE4 is my current game engine of choice I have decided to collect a list of games that use it, with the obvious ones first.

I hope these games get you motivated to make your own!

Unreal Engine 4 Tutorial: How to change the default camera

Intro

In this Unreal Engine 4 tutorial I will talk about how to change the “default camera”.

For one of my projects (A 2D side scroller) I wanted to have a camera actor as opposed to a camera component attached to a player character, like in some of the engine sample projects.

I wanted to have full control of the behavior of the camera and I did not want to worry about the camera after the character was destroyed. If you think about it, if the camera is attached to the character as a component, once the character is destroyed so is the camera.

Here is how I went about getting it done. Keep in mind that this is just one way to go about it.
