48 hours non-stop Game Development event.First ever Global Game Jam site in Sri Lanka. The event is for newbies and experts who like to Develop Games.
Innovation - Experimentation - Collaboration
The Global Game Jam® (GGJ) is the world's largest game jam event (game creation) taking place around the world at physical locations. Think of it as a hackathon focused on game development. It is the growth of an idea that in today’s heavily connected world, we could come together, be creative, share experiences and express ourselves in a multitude of ways using video games – it is very universal. The weekend stirs a global creative buzz in games, while at the same time exploring the process of development, be it programming, iterative design, narrative exploration or artistic expression. It is all condensed into a 48 hour development cycle. The GGJ encourages people with all kinds of backgrounds to participate and contribute to this global spread of game development and creativity.
Do you wanna learn Unreal Engine 4?
Hi there! Welcome to this short guide on how to get yourself started on learning Unreal Engine 4, atleast the basics.
Game development is really a different field than software development. While softwares are made as a solution to a problem, a game is made for a different reality (A world of it's own).
Is Game development worth it in Sri Lanka? - Definitely! The Trend for game development will always increase with the trend for games. Even in countries like Sri lanka, game development will always be a step forward!
Now that's out of our way, Let's start with where you can get the basics of Unreal Engine.
Below is a set of content you can use to learn Unreal Engine 4 :Unreal Engine Documentation
UE4's greatest help source is their documentation freely written out by the developers themselves.
You can read through them to get an understanding on :How Specific Nodes Work How UE4 defines on parameters (i.e that graphic levels used) Methods on how to achieve a goal Design Issues Coding Language (Blueprint Scripting) Learning Export Settings (Specially other platforms, like, Android) And Much more updated content!
I recommend you to go through the documents whenever you get stuck at a how a node works and in your daily design or coding.
UE4 Docs are the easiest to learn newly too as it helps on getting started around the engine!Official Unreal Engine Youtube Tutorials
You can use the youtube tutorials as they are really easy how to understand and follow along. The only small drawbacks is that due to the newer updates, some nodes/techniques may differ effecting its work.
UE4 Youtube Tutorials have many sections as follows :Introduction to UE4 Introduction to Blueprints Introduction to Cinematics Introduction to 3rdPerson GamePlay Blueprint Multiplayer Game C++ Battery Collector Game Introduction to Cascade Introduction to Level Creation Introduction to Materials Introduction to Physics Paper2D Game UMG UI Inventory
Personally following that, I do recommend you do those courses as they are really good to get your hands dirty into coding!!
Let me hook up some links of how I used from what I currently learned from those above coursesSmall Cinematic Worked in Progress Photo of Importing Assets into the Engine ScreenShots of Cinematics Being worked and Blueprints
That plus counting!
You can really learn alot using these!Other Youtube and Google Sources
There are so much of other video series on Youtube and Google that will definitely help you get your hands on something cool! As for starts, let me recommend you two channels that I follow for contents!For Unreal Engine Work and Game Development - Virtus Learning Hub For C++ and Game Engine Development - TheCherno
These two above are really good at what they do and I totally recommend to check them out. You can always follow them on social media apps to connect with them more!
As Always Thank you for Reading this post and Hope you guys learn atleast something new!
Thank you again and Hope to see you all on future posts,

Hi guys, welcome to the first Introduction to Unreal Engine! You can't pretty much do anything if you don't download the engine first. In here we will talk about few terms of what Unreal Engine does and what it's for.Note : Apologies if the same questions in the before post is mentioned here as well. First let's start with What is Unreal Engine?
Unreal Engine is a set of developing tools in an Integrated Developing Environment (IDE) which is used to develop games. The reason why I choose Unreal Engine (UE4) is that UE4 has a good environment to design, animate and develop the games you've want to make.Can you make good games like Call of Duty or Grand Theft Auto(GTA) in UE4?
Short Answer, Yes. UE4 can be used to make big games, but you will need alot of people to do each work, and usually, companies end up creating a game engine of their own eventually.Is it possible to Learn how to make games without prior knowledge for coding?
Yes. UE4 has a Visual scripting method called Blueprints shown below. Using that you will be able to drag drop nodes which is the same as coding. Yes you will need to learn blueprints, but learning blueprints is actually easier than coding since its visually appealing.
alt textCan one person make a game?
You can. Do NOT ever Demotivate yourself thinking you need anyone else. If you want to make a game, step up and start learning. There are so much of free resources which you can use that I will link later onwards.What do you need to learn if you want to make a complete game yourself?
For a start, I'm a beginner at cinematics (which is something like trailers) and I'm working on this cinematic by myself using existing assets.
Character Designing - You will need to design your characters in the game. Draw them in a 2D environment and have a rough idea what kind of character it will be (for example : A human, A robot or any other).Here you can use an application like Maya.
Character Modelling/Rigging - This is where you design the character in a 3D environment, add the necessary colors and rig the character with a skeleton. Rigging means you make bones for the character for animations and physics.
Character Animations - Here you make the animations from the character rigged earlier. Animations include walking, running, jumping, etc
Level Designing - Now you focus on the environment the character(s) are going to be on.
You make a plan and start designing what the environment is going to be. Here you can use an application like 3DS Max.
Level Designing Advanced - Here you focus the terrain or level details, example, the lighting.
Programming - This is the place where you start the coding process. Here is where you connect the character to the animations, to the level, inside the engine.
Sounds - You will need to create sounds for main menu and effects when running, getting damage.
FX and other effects - This is the place where you design effects, for example, rain, any abilities used.
As an inspiration/motivation, this is a video of a speed level that was made in UE4. Do check it out and leave a like for the creator!How to Download and Install Unreal Engine?
Go to this website - https://www.unrealengine.com/en-US/download and download the file epic games (Which should be auto downloading).
Install Epic Games
Make an account - https://accounts.epicgames.com/register
Log into Epic Games from the Launcher you downloaded
From the top menu bar, click on Unreal Engine which should be on the far left side.
Click on the yellow button on the left middle which says install/Download.
Epic Games will automatically download and install it on the place where you specify.Troubleshooting Tips Verification code takes time to reach my gmail account - Don't worry, it is common Epic games takes time. Wait for few minutes and you will get it.
Note : I might update this overtime.

Thanks for reading this. Hope ya'll learn something new!
Hi there folks! Welcome to a starting guide to Game Development and Unreal Engine. Here we'll few things about game creation in general and help getting started into game development.
Let's answer most of the asked questions about Game Development first!
What is the difference between Playing Games and Developing Games?
As the word implies, one is playing a game and other is developing, but let's go for a more in depth answer. Playing a game means you are running a set of instructions which the processor moves around from the application on the HDD to the memory on the RAM. Which means it is always constantly on the move and on the run.
Whereas developing a game means the application won't be running always. Using tools and mini applications, at runtime or otherwise, the environment of the application(game) is modified.
Too Advanced or Doesnt make sense? Let's move on!
What do you need to make a Game?A medium-high end Computer Some knowledge about Game Creation Internet connection
Yes that's it!
Is it hard to development a game like Assassin's Creed or Grand Theft Auto?
Simplest Answer : Yes, but do-able. The problem is, high level games have alot of details in the environment. We will talk about the basic overview the people in companies like Ubisoft, Activision do to create huge games.
What is the Recommended PC for Game DevelopmentCore i7 8th Gen Processor Above 12GB RAM GTX 1080 Graphic Card Decent Motherboard to handle the processor and GPU Decent Powersupply to match the GPU and Motherboard's needs Basic 2TB Magnetic HDD (If possible go for a SSD)
Despite what many people might suggest, I recommend the following.
What is the Software used to Develop Games?
There are many game engines used to develop games. The one that I am familar with is Unreal Engine 4 or UE4 in short. Here's an example what it looks like :
Do you need to learn a Programming Language to make games?
Engines like UE4 use a visual scripting language called blueprints, as shown below : alt text.
Learning a programming language is not necessary, but it better if you can to learn a language like C++ which is commonly used in the Game Development industry.
What fields do you need to learn to make a game by yourself?Character Designs Level Designs Effect Designs Programming Sounds and Effects Animation Designs
I recommend the follow fields to be learnt. This will be mentioned more in future posts.
Is there an easy way to make games?
To be honest, there is few ways you can make your workload reduced by using external services. That will be mentioned in another post.
How to get started with Unreal Engine?You need to Download Epic Games from here and make an account. Using the Epic Games, Download unreal engine
Here is what my Epic Games UE4 looks like : alt text.
Hope this covers atleast a start to Game Development. If you have any questions feel free to comment below or DM. I am learning Game development myself.
Thank you for your time in reading this!
