Introduction to Unreal Development Kit

Ogre Islands is a fantasy, combat, adventure game being developed by UnrealPHD using Epic’s Unreal Development Kit (UDK) and next gen 3d models and environments. Release is scheduled for Spring 2011. Join the UnrealPHD forums to stay informed of demos and beta testing opportunities.

As the PC version is being completed we will start production on an iPhone spinoff using our Ogre Islands assets and re-purposing them as lower res versions, in a simpler game form.

We are looking for skilled game team members to share responsibilities and earn a percentage of profits on this project. We are only seeking very experienced Zbrush artists, or Character Riggers and animators, UDK programmers, Unity 3d progammers, or excellent 3d modelers and texture artists. Do you want to see your work in game and get game credits, and earn some money from our online sales? Contact our team today.

Hello, we are the UnrealPHD Game Design Team.

UnrealPHD is a collaborative map team formed in 2008. Our first project was Phase 2 of Epic’s Make Something Unreal Contest (MSUC), in which we had 4 official entries in multiple categories. This competition is still being judged, and is one of the largest competitions in Game Design with over $1 million dollars in prizes. Entries are judged on performance using the Unreal 3 Editor, and creating and integrating custom content.—DM-Starbase-Defense

Our team embraces next-generation modeling and game techniques. Our low-res game friendly meshes have normal and displacement maps and simulate models with millions of polygons.

Stay tuned for Unreal PHD’s Phase 4 entry to Epic’s Make Something Unreal Contest.
