The free admission of the commercial 3D game development engine Unreal Engine has attracted more independent game developers, with the majority studying Unreal Engine on their own. Under such circumstance, a well-written guide book becomes very helpful or even necessary. If you are eager to use Unreal Engine to develop your own creative and attractive cross-platform games, then the Unreal Engine 4 Game Development in 24 Hours in Sams Teach Yourself series can be your first choice.

Sams Teach Yourself Unreal Engine 4 Game Development in 24 Hours contains a total of about 24 hours of courses. It teaches you how to use Unreal Engine 4’s UI, workflow, and powerful tools to finish all the common tasks required to develop a complete, fully-functional game in an intuitive, step-by-step (each class is based on what you have learned) manner.
