So after a harrowing week in which I forgot to renew the domain name for the website, it’s all back up and running like new again, thank goodness. To make matters a little more pleasant, I’m pleased to report that the Ugly Baby Studios team’s short film “Double Vision” has placed 12th overall in the A3F 2006 Film Festival competition.
For those who don’t know the specifics, The UBS team was up against 64 other teams this year, which cranked out a staggering 56 short films to compete against.
The long-discussed Unreal Engine 3 based game, formerly codenamed “Envy” by Epic Games, has now been officially announced and will be showing behind closed doors at E3 later this month. From the screenshots posted today (some of which are reposts) the game looks to be one of the most gorgeous of the upcoming generation, certainly looking to appeal to those for whom eye-candy is everything.
According to the article, UT2007 will not be in any way an extension of the UT2003/4 codebase but is an entirely new game built from scratch on the new engine. It should feature numerous new vehicles, possibly with destructible components, 8 team support and numerous new gametypes.
