This year’s Make Something Unreal Live – (Epic’s annual game making contest) has announced a winner. Epigenesis was crowned king of the grueling week-long final, held at Birmingham’s NEC. The game is a team shooter/ball game that has the potential to become an "eSport". The four finalists were competing for a pristine new commercial license of the Unreal Engine 4.
Developed by Dead Shark Triplepunch of the Blekinge Institute of Technology, Sweden, Epigenesis has teams competing across an abstract arena of floating platforms. Players are fighting over a single ball, hoping to get it through their opponent’s hoop. Score, and you can place a seed on one of the platforms, claiming it for your side. Your ultimate aim is to link a chain of platforms to the other side’s endzone.
