What is UDK?

UnrealTechnology wrote:UDK is Unreal Engine 3 – the complete professional development framework. All the tools you need to create great games, advanced visualizations and detailed 3D simulations. The best tools in the industry are in your hands.

Who is it for?

UnrealTechnology wrote:Anyone. Everyone. You. Unreal Engine 3 has been used by game developers, researchers, television studios, machinima directors, artists and students. If you have an idea that needs to be brought to life in a game engine, UDK is for you.

Why UDK?

UnrealTechnology wrote:Only UDK has the power, flexibility and track record of Unreal Engine 3. These tools have been proven with countless releases and dozens of awards. There is no better way to make awesome games than with UE3.

Both serve a purpose and are unique to the purpose they serve. A lot of people enjoy both while others will tell you one is better than the other. I've heard that scripting is easier on Unity while others enjoy using UDK because it makes more sense. I myself am a sound designer who's programming if you can call it that is pretty much the same on every engine lol I love both engines, I think the best answer is to try it for yourself and see what you can do!

Hey everyone!
I'm Zed, I'm looking to begin games development.

I plan on taking courses and learning C++ and Java to their full extent and program games using them.

I have heard about UDK - I hear it's more graphics based, dragging items with proporties - Right?

I would love to develop & release games and wondering if this is the right choice before I learn C++ and Java.

which unrealscript ide is the best? I have used plenty and they suck, I am better of using notepad to program the unreal engine due to the fact that syntax and intellisense never work for the ides.

Our programmers are using Visual Studio 2010. It provides good debugging tools and is comfortable for our guys in general.

If you're selling your game wouldn't that mean you need a commercial license?
