Dead Shark Triplepunch Wins Unreal Engine 4 License and Make Something Unreal Live 2013

The free edition of the Unreal Engine 3 (UDK – Unreal Developer Kit) is a challenging yet masterful development tool which many teams passionately proved is worthy of developer attention. The team Dead Shark Triplepunch from Sweden not the least of which as their title went on to the very last day of the competition finally enduring it all becoming number one.

The Make Something Unreal Live 2013 event was held for six days during which attendees of the Gadget Show Live event were putting contestants’ titles through their paces testing for everything from replay value and art direction to overall marketability and enjoyment.

Epigenesis, Dead Shark Triplepunch’s winning title was even worked on, improved, and developed further during the event. Industry experts even consulted Dead Shark Triplepunch throughout this event and they managed to make vast improvements to the title while presenting a polished, final version at the end of the show! The Wellcome Trust played a hand in making this possible as well.

Polymorph placed 2nd and as runner-up was unexpectedly rewarded an Unreal Engine 3 license allowing them to bring their game to the mainstream market. Dead Shark Triplepunch received the Unreal Engine 4 license, Unreal Engine 3 license, and a hardware package as well for their grand prize winnings.

Epic Games has announced that they expect most of the games shown at this year’s Make Something Unreal Live 2013 event would have the potential to compete with the big boys if their creators remained dedicated to pursuing their visions with the Unreal development technology and gaming community.

“From the first couple of days at the show, we’ve said that all four finalist games have the potential to be released commercially. We believe that our top two placed teams should be able to realise that ambition and granting the Unreal Engine 3 licence gives them a clear route to market.” says Mike Gamble, European Territory Manager at Epic Games
