The purpose of a game engine is to provide tools, thus making the development of video games easier. These tools simplify common tasks, including rendering, animation, AI, collision detection, and scripting. Many developers and organizations consider the Unreal Engine one of the best game engines available. Also, in 2014, it received the Guinness World Record award for “Most Successful Videogame Engine.”

This site is for anyone who wants to learn:

Learn Game Design

Learn game design the correct way so you don’t have to unlearn mistakes later. Understand the difference between brushes and meshes. Know which are the easiest to work with, which require the most memory, and which you should use for level prototyping and which you should use for your final product.

Learn how to construct beautiful levels with grass, clouds, and sunshine. Or build a dark, damp dungeon! Once you learn proper level design, the only limit to the kind of environments you can construct is your imagination!

Learn Game Programming

Learn game programming using Unreal Engine’s new visual scripting system, Blueprints. Blueprints allow non-programmers to quickly learn how to script complex logic, so they can have full control over their games. Blueprints also help experienced programmers script game logic that would take much longer to write in code.
