The April 2015 issue of Develop is now on its way to readers’ desks around the world, with the digital edition also available.
Inside we talk to Epic, Unity and Crytek on the move to free and what it means for developers. We also chat with Gabe Newell about the Source 2 engine and Autodesk on its upcoming Stingray tech.
Elsewhere we look at the vast array of quality alternative game engines you may not have considered before, and also talk to the studios that build their own. Our in-depth look at QA meanwhile covers broken games and live operations.
