So I was browsing twitter and I came upon this amazing student project.
Although I do reckognize the default speedtree art assets, this is one of
the most amazing low-budget student project I haveever seen since
Among the Sleep by Norwegian student developer Krillbite.

This is of course made with the Unreal Engine, which I personally think is a
great thing, seeing as it will really showcase what a small team with no
expirience what so ever in the game development industry can do with an
engine like this, mostly using the blueprint system that Epic games have
developed for the newest version of their in-development engine.

So what do you guys think? Will this be an amazing success, or is it merely
a bunch of cute looking animations and colorful landscape that has no actual
place in a game like this?

The Unreal Development Kit is an absolutely beautiful piece of software and I've seen a shitload of great things being made by complete amateurs.

Epic Games has my respect for making it free to use and learn with.
