Bottle Rocket welcomes Epic Games

by Bottle Rocket

Bottle Rocket opened its doors to Epic Games last night for their “Dallas is Unreal” Indie Developer meet-up.

From 6-9 p.m., representatives from Epic Games hosted members of the community at our offices and showed off demos of the new Unreal Engine 4.

The new engine boasts “new workflow features and a deep toolset” that allow developers to iterate on ideas quicker, all while providing complete C++ source code access.

“We want this to be as widely available as possible,” Epic Evangelist Andy Hess said. “By making the tools available to everybody, amazing things happen.”

Hess and his team gave live demos showing off new post-processing effects and animation previews – all aimed at making developers’ lives easier.

We’re excited to see what local indie developers do with Unreal 4 and are looking forward to seeing the guys from Epic Games again!
