“I am a big fan of Unreal Engine. It is so accessible, especially its blueprint system gives developers like me who do not consider themselves a programmer first the opportunity to tackle big projects. Beside providing this great tool, Epic Games financially supports game developers and other creators using it. About half a year ago I applied for an Epic MegaGrant and two days ago I received a congratulatory mail of acceptance from Epic Games. I am incredibly thankful and excited to be counted among the recipients,” says Alain Brunotte, the CEO of Alchemical Works, who is now committed to developing BattleJuice Alchemist full-time. “The MegaGrant comes just at the right point in time for us, I almost can’t believe it. I am looking forward to the next months of development. We are currently working on many exciting things that we want to share with the community soon.”
