Beyond Evolution is being released to the world, a short Unreal Engine 4 game. For free!

Posted by on

Silently I've been working on a small game for the last couple of weeks. The purpose: have something short, fun and visually pleasing. Especially the fade from a natural green to a purple is a key element, same as the shift from natural to a more metallic look.

On the other hand the project is like a first contact with realtime raytracing. Three types have been implemented: Shadows, Reflections and Skylights. While the former two are relatively feasible, the latter is quite expensive and does need a very fast RTX card.

Meaning it will still look great withouth raytracing, though with the mood improves by quite a bit.

Storywise there's nothing big, but a few monoliths with some interesting inscriptions. So if you want you can read them to get a bit of lore or completely ignore them, it's up to you.

Have fun playing,

Love the colors Dave and the use of ray-tracing is really cool! Will be exciting to see more developers use it more in upcoming games.

Also nice work on smashing out a game in a short time, good way to iterate and learn quickly :)
