Try Out the Unreal Engine Running in Flash Right Now

THE BUZZ: Epic Games has unveiled the Unreal Engine for flash, and now anyone can try it out.

Simply head over to unrealengine.com/flash to try out Epic Citadel (above), which was originally launched for iOS devices.

Trendy Entertainment has also been demonstrating their multi-platform tower defense game Dungeon Defenders running in flash at GDC this week.

Finally Epic showed off Unreal Tournament 3 running in real time in a browser on the Sanctuary map, one of the game’s most visually stunning maps.

EGM’s TAKE: It’s an amazing achievement by Epic to get the Unreal Engine running in flash. Could this be the start of actually designing console quality games for browsers? If this demo is anything to go by it certainly could be. Of course the idea is still a long way off, but just think of the possibilities that this has opened up.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
