Jason Lewis, a senior environment artist for Obsidian Entertainment, started a personal project earlier this year that was meant to teach him the ins-and-outs of Unreal 4. That project soon ballooned, and other developers at Obsidian got involved in making what they’re calling an “interactive fan art piece.”
Nintendo already released its first smartphone app Miitomo earlier this year. Now, apparently, it’s hiring more folks for future ones.
Duskwood, a World of Warcraft zone almost all Alliance players visit while leveling, got the Unreal Engine treatment by Daniel L, who’s slowly recreating all the classic Eastern Kingdoms zones.
Retro tech, abandoned coffee cups, unmade beds, monitors saying “LOST CONTACT” in all caps. Yep, that’s a deserted Alien space station, alright.
BioShock came out nearly nine years ago and used Unreal Engine 2.5, so it’s no wonder the Unreal Engine 4 project it inspired looks so sharp.
We’ve seen video games nail cloth physics, hair physics, and even water physics. Penis physics, though? That’s mostly a new frontier.

Sorry! This isn't an actual Paris apartment. But dang, it sure looks nice.
Are we (finally) getting a new Unreal Tournament game? We'll find out at 2pm Eastern, when the folks at Epic Games promise they'll be talking about "the future of Unreal Tournament."
Then it might look a little bit like...this. Which is to say: it would look fantastic.
Hopefully we'll get to see something similarly pretty in our lifetimes—well, that's not the main problem. Something similarly pretty but in-game, and with an acceptable framerate. Yeah, that's it.
