The lights are on
While Epic is quick to show off the graphical fidelity and raw power of their new Unreal Engine 4 (click here to see Cliff Bleszinski do just that), they are also hoping that the engine is appealing to game development teams that don't have a wealth of technical knowledge. The redesigned "Kismet" scripting system for Unreal Engine 4 is designed as a simple set of tools that allow for the relatively quick turnaround of ideas into full-fledged games. The video below, art director Shane Caudle, who has no programming experience, shows off a collection of minigames he programmed by himself with the help of Epic Games vice president Mark Rein.

My eyes have seen the future. And it it GLORIOUS.
This looks awesome!
Games are going to be totally different when developers start using this engine. This is going to usher in a new era for this industry and I can't wait to see what's in store.
I hope when we can get our hands on this eventually!! I have a need to make a few games!!
I think this is pretty fantastic.
