Today we launched Unreal Indies, our initiative that demonstrates Epic Games’ commitment to independent game developers everywhere. The Unreal Indies Portal packages together all of the great resources that Epic offers to indie devs, all in one place.

Assembling a truly autonomous smart home is getting closer and closer to reality every day. But for every new smart bulb, thermostat, home security system and appliance we set loose within our walls, there are still probably a half dozen “dumb” items we’d still love to replace.
