Crowd-Sourced Game Dev
Epic recently revealed their plans for Unreal Tournament 4 as a crowd-sourced game. Anyone with a subscription to their Unreal Engine 4, for the price of $19 a month, gets full access to develop on the next-gen engine and gets to help develop the next Unreal Tournament. I personally have loved several games that have used previous versions of the Unreal game engine (Borderlands, Mass Effect, Gears of War to name a few...) and am looking forward to a new generation of games. You can bet I'll be keeping my eye on this development as it goes on and possibly be joining in on some scripting. I'm crossing my fingers that with the community's help the game will be better than the last incarnation (Unreal Tournament 3) and more like the fast-paced, adrenaline-fueled Unreal Tournament 2003 and 2004 games.
Now I'm going to go play some Sins of a Solar Empire
