Make Something Unreal Live 2013
Make Something Unreal Live, a student development competition Epic Games is behind is making another appearance next year. This time Epic is partnering up with Wellcome Trust to provide the theme for the competition, which should "cleverly play on the theme of Mendelian inheritance, which spans concepts such as variation, mutation and other behaviours of the human genome" according to the press release.
The pitch deadline is for the 2nd of November and I am already encouraging students of mine here at Bournemouth University to participate (shortlisted teams will then work on a game, all of this leading up to the winning group receiving an Unreal Engine 4 license), especially seeing a past student of mine was a member of the winning team for the Gamify Your PhD Wellcome Trust competition (see older blogpost on this here). For entering the contest see official website here.
