Hey man...have you ever seen Minecraft...on Unreal 4?!

I'm starting to feel ridiculous writing all these Unreal Engine 4 posts. I mean, on one hand, they're so easy to do, almost to the point where it's not worth it. The common criticism is that they constantly just reference existing material...   read
