    Hey mat, just some info for you as of now in the game development world there is another engine rising in popularity so fast that it might turn the duopoly to a tripoly called Godot, still Unity and Unreal dominate the market while pygame isn't even a game engine so to speak but pygame is still vastly used because of python's popularity and ease of use

      Also about developers and game engines there still are lots of people who don't use game engines to develop games although they've become a minority now, instead of game engines some people use libraries/modules and which generally give you graphics and some basic stuff then leaves physics, logic etc. to you Although there are some that do the opposite when you combine them together you can get varying results

    Epic Games is worth 30 billion. How long do you think it will be before Apple, Microsoft, Google, or Facebook start bidding on the company? I would not be surprised to see Apple do so despite recent circumstances (if they buy them the case doesn’t matter).

      It works when you think about it from a pr perspective. They give developers an opportunity to create something that could become the next big thing. Not only does it allow new indie devs to prosper and spread their wings, but it builds Epic's own platform as well. Now there are other 3D modeling programs outside of unreal and unity, but you can seamlessly port between them as both game engines have compatibility with them. And if there isn't native support, plugins made by independent devs will do the job as both engines are open source to allow the compatibility.

    Only my opinion but, the sad part is that despite unreal engine being a very good engine, a lot of game that comes out of it in recent history have a very similar feeling to one another.
    Don't get me wrong lot of good game use it well, but a lot of game just ends up having the same feel, visuals, controls and physics as another (there are few devs that actually give the extra effort for their game to not look and feel like a standard unreal game).
    It's a convenient engine, but I do think that to some extent it's killing the diversity of games, especially when big name title used to have their own style and cohesion, now it's mostly all unreal style, and I'm getting bored of the games using it way faster than the game that don't (because most of the time the game controls, feels and look very similar to another game I grew bored of).
    I watched a gameplay video of a game being developed using it and it just felt like watching "Ark survival evolved" or "insert another game using it" gameplay, despite all of the differences it just felt lazy and not worth my time.
