Unreal Engine Game with Networked Multiplayer - cs428TAs/w2023 GitHub Wiki

The Project

Our repository: https://github.com/dawnE64/BaseBumpRepo

Make a game in Unreal Engine with a focus on getting Networked Multiplayer.

Some easy go to games could be some kind of shooter or brawler. Or we could do a turn based grid based game so that anyone wanting to do logic for the game could work strictly within code and not have to worry about the Engine. Any kind of simple game would work, the important part would be adding in the network functionality so the game could be played multiplayer on several computers at once.

Initial Idea

A simple fighting game where you have 2 minutes to customize your fighter. You can balance attack, defense, speed or something like that. And maybe choose either a sword or gun. And then a special item like a jet pack, invisibility device, or grenades. This can scale up to any number of players to help focus on networking techniques.
