about Unreal Development Kit Aug 2014

The best game engine !
a little compilcated at first, but we can learn very rapidly how to create games and programming.

i am unable to launch any app based on unreal engine after my update to windows 7, and this stoped my development :(

But this is a great engine, and there are a lot of tutorial and DEV infos on the web and epic games forums !
