Game industry experts to support Make Something Unreal

Peter Molyneux and Miles Jacobson among legends supporting competing teams at this year's Gadget Show Live

Many of the UK games industry's top names have lent support to Epic Games' Make Something Unreal competition, which comes to a close at Gadget Show Live next month.

The competition pits teams against each other to create a game from scratch using Epic's Unreal Development Kit, the free version of Unreal Engine 3. The four remaining teams will go head to head at this year's Gadget Show Live which starts on April 2nd and runs until the 7th.

Amongst the names lending their support to the finalists at the event are Peter Molyneux (founder of Bullfrog and Lionhead), Jon Hare (Sensible Soccer and Cannon Fodder), Anton Westbergh (Coffee Stain Studios), Clive Roberts (Hasbro), Miles Jacobson (Sports Interactive), Ella Romanos (Remode), Dave Jones (Denki), Kostas Zarifis (Fable II, Fable III).

Each will be on hand to help advise the contestants, as well as offer constructive criticism.

The four games being developed centre on the theme of Mendelian inheritance: human genomics and genetics, and is supported by the Wellcome Trust.

"I'm delighted to welcome our games industry experts to Make Something Unreal Live 2013," said Mike Gamble, European territory manager at Epic Games. "We hope that their guidance will prove inspirational and supportive for our finalists, who will be working nonstop on their games throughout the show."

Amongst the games being developed are a puzzle platform game aimed at younger players, a fast-paced ball game played across rooftops, a farming simulator which uses selective breeding to build up livestock, and a third person platform gaming focused on a continually evolving character.

Development of the games will be completed live on the show floor in front of both the industry experts, judges, and the public.

The winner – who will be announced on the final day – will be award with a commercial Unreal Engine 4 (pictured) licence for PC digital distribution.
