Book Description

Many of the most popular games are built using toolkits comparable to UDK. Unreal Development Kit tools can help anyone take the ideas in their head and make them into a fully realized, playable world.

Build a Game with UDK is an introduction to the tools of the kit. From knowing about them, to creating virtual worlds, this book will teach you how to use the tools in making an enticing game.

You will learn how to build a world using the extensive art assets provided to you as part of UDK, and we’ll also look at creating a virtual world! Once we're done building, we’ll populate it with features that bring life to your game. If you’re looking to learn how to use professional level tools for making your own games, then this book is for you.
