    Of the 17 seeing contributions from Epic this time around, 12 are game developers working in a variety of mediums including VR projects like Cooperative Innovations’ Raiders of Erda, the mobile title Be:Brave from One Dream, and Sandswept Studios’ early access project Unfortunate Spaceman

    Outside of the game sphere, five other projects are receiving a grant this time around as well, including the analytics plugin maker gameDNA and the VR capture tech pioneer A full list of the fund’s latest recipients can be found on Epic’s website

    The $5 million Unreal Dev Grants fund was set up by Epic in 2015 to provide game developers with between $5,000 and $50,000 in no-strings-attached financial support. Since, Epic has periodically dished out grants in the name of the fund to game developers, educators, and other parties that enrich the Unreal developer community.
