Toronto-based mobile developer Get Set Games is the latest recipient of Epic Games’ Unreal Dev Grants, an initiative to help fund projects that show off Unreal Engine 4 and its capabilities.
The studio received $18,000 towards its mobile game Mega Blast, a 3D action platformer that sees a monster smashing and bombing his way through a series of grid-based levels.
“Mega Blast is our first 3D mobile game, and Unreal Engine 4 has allowed us to make that transition with ease,” studio co-founder Derek van Vilet said in an Unreal Blog post.
“The Blueprint system has empowered our artists and designers to inject a whole new level of juiciness into [the game] world. Having free access to the full source of the engine has been invaluable for debugging, extending our toolchain and optimising Mega Blast for devices. The result is a game we’re extremely proud of.”
