Prepare for your 3D Games Design Camp!

This page explains how you can prepare for the 3D Game Design camp!

Step 1: Install Unreal Engine

We’ve created this tutorial to walk you through this process step by step.

Even though this is a free software, it requires a relatively recent computer to run. Typically, any computer or laptop purchased within the previous 4 years should be sufficient. Unreal Engine works on both Windows and Mac OS X, but cannot be used on other devices such as Chromebooks or tablets.

Please note you can install any version of Unreal Engine, but Unreal Engine 5 requires a more powerful computer to run. We do however recommend all students to download Unreal Engine 4.24.

If you’re a tech savvy parent, you may be interested in reading the official system requirements here.

In the event that your system does not meet the requirement to join this camp, we offer an excellent alternative with our Python coding camp which has a significantly lower system requirement and will work fine on most computers & laptops.
