I am a Level Designer and 3d modeler from Tampa, FL., and part of the Unreal PHD team. We are a global game design team, and have produced maps for Halo, Unreal Tournament 2004 and Unreal Tournament 3. Separately we do 3d for commercials, print, and websites, and have worked together for 2 years to enter the game market. As a studio we plan on releasing our first two games (one already in progress) in 2010, and plan to sell the first one for $8. It will be for PCs and built with the UDK.

Thanks for the insightful article. It was very interesting to hear you talk about increasing FPS using the various methods. We have wondered about that and our Game Studio is just starting to develop our first iphone game using Unity. Normally, we use Unreal 3, and UDK, and are still learning Unity, and we are actually looking for another programmer to join our iphone team at Ipodtouch1.com and our main team at Unrealphd.com. We have several 3d modelers and textures, and can make anything from custom characters, weapons, and props, etc... now we just need a good Unity and iPhone person. We knew that we would encounter some different issues with the iphone and ipad than we are use to with UDK and next gen games, and its great to hear you discussing those things.

Our game studio has created custom maps and content for Halo, Fear, Unreal 2004 and Unreal Tournament 3 (UT3), and we received an Honorable Mention from Epic games $1 Million dollar Make Something Unreal Contest (MSUC) last year in UT3.

Now we have created a high definition 3 1/2 hour video that will teach anyone how to design their own games in just 1 day using Epic's free Unreal Development Kit, and it's available for Digital Download or on DVD. It is the only tutorial that that can teach you everything you need to know in such a short amount of time.

Do you want to learn to create Next Gen Games? Learn the essentials from start to finish in our 3 1/2 hour video tutorial UnrealPHD Introduction to Unreal Development Kit. Only $25 for the digital download, and you can create your first next gen FPS game in just one day! Unrealphd.com

Wow where is everyone shouting for CryEngine2? We are kicking butt now with Unreal Engine 3.5 aka UDK :P...I know CryEngine2 has some great features that we are unfamiliar with, but the stuff we have custom programmed in our new Game which we are releasing in a few weeks is light years above our last UT3 maps. We have done custom characters and weapons in UDK already. We are also looking for beta testers for our demo due within 3 weeks, so stay tuned.

Hello everyone. Glad to see some other Unreal fans!
We are the UnrealPHD map team. We received an Honorable Mention from Epic for our map Starbase Defense during the Make Something Unreal Contest. We are always looking for qualified team members. If you are interested, check out my profile and it has our homepage link. You can contact us on there.
We have alot of free UDK tutorials up on Youtube: Youtube.com

Hi all. Our game team, UnrealPHD, recently completed 20 months of development for EPIC Games Make Something Unreal Contest. We competed in phases 2, 3, and 4, with 8 official entries. We received an Honorable Mention from Epic for our map Starbase Defense.

We are looking for an experienced team or individual to port our map to Crysis so we can share with the Crysis commmunity, and experience how it's game engine compares to UE3 and UDK. We have alot of next-gen models already done, with normal maps and custom textures.

We don't want to even consider sharing these with anyone who doesn't have a long history of making their own things, so please only apply if you can show what you make. Please no time wasters, or people who only dream, our team works together all the time and we all make some time for each other or for at least 2 or 3 hours or more per month at a minimum, and we have eliminated a bunch of talkers in the past, no offense intended to the talkers :P but let's just be forward from the start. Our team also prefers working with others 18 and up, like ourselves, we all range from 25-38 years old, and all of our members have a history of 3d production before game design (this isn't a must for our Crysis lead but skill is).

We already created a section on our website for our future Crysis based releases, and look forward not only to custom maps for Crysis, but making custom Cinematics using the Crysis engine. We are currently a 7 person game team working together almost 2 years, and currently specialize in Unreal and Unreal programming, with several video tutorials on UDK. We would like to integrate with a specialist in Crysis to port our work to that game.

To see our website, you can check out my homepage link in my profile.

Best Regards, and Seasons Greetings,
UnrealPHD Lead Modeler/Level Designer/Art Director

Things in the Unreal World are going great, we are loving Unreal Development Kits new features over Unreal Engine 3. Thanks EPIC! We released a bunch of free tutorials all over the web on UDK, and released our first training dvd, Introduction to Unreal Development Kit. As a small game studio/game team, it's going to be hard competing with 3dbuzz (who are awesome) and Gnomon. But our dvd is only 3 1/2 hours long, and doesn't do anything repetitive, you just build a complete map from A to Z pretty quickly, and we hope that Unreal Developers that don't want to sit thru 20-60 hours watching other tuts to make a map enjoy watching ours and doing things faster.

Other than that we are working on our first standalone game, we are still working out the details, but we have alot of assets to work with. The first game will be futuristic like the our map Starbase Defense that got an Honorable Mention from Epic Games in the Make Something Unreal Contest.

We also want to create a 2d scroller probably at the same time, and we are excited to do something different than the First Person Shooters we have done in the past (Halo, Unreal Tournament 2004, and Unreal Tournament 3).

We are also wanting to put together a Crysis team, but to start with to port our artwork from Unreal Engine directly to Crysis. If you know anyone that is qualified (we won't turn over 18 months of our Unreal work to anyone who isn't qualified with maps of their own) please contact us with info.

Seasons greetings to all!
