UDK Video Tutorials

UDK, another of the more popular game engines alongside Unity, also has a huge community of support, from extensive and pretty well-organized documentation to video tutorials, downloadable samples and starter kits to help adapt the engine to various genres other than FPS, and of course a forum. It can take a few clicks to find a specific topic, as there’s so much content it’s fairly nested, but everything’s still pretty easy to find. Out of the box, UDK is best-suited to FPS games, but it’s a tremendously versatile engine that’s a lot of fun to work with. Portfolio-wise it can be a great place to create real-time visual effects, shaders, environments, and other portfolio samples. Finally, it’s also a fairly common non-proprietary engines to see in professional studios, so experience working within it is great for a resume and often readily applicable in the workplace.
