Today the mad computer scientists at Agog Labs are giggling with substantially more glee than usual, for Epic Games has just announced that it has awarded us a $15,000 Unreal Development Grant to support the SkookumScript Unreal Engine 4 Plugin:
SkookumScript is a text-based programming language for creating performance-critical gameplay. It’s been used in AAA games such as Sleeping Dogs, and it is now available as a free plugin for UE4. The mad scientists at Agog Labs receive $15,000 for their dedication.
Reached for comment in his subterranean lab somewhere in Canada, Agog Labs CEO and SkookumScript creator Conan Reis cackled megalomaniacally for several minutes before replying.
“This is supremely excellent news,” Reis chortled. “This Unreal Dev Grant will help us achieve our diabolical goal of making SkookumScript the definitive scripting solution for Unreal Engine 4. Together, the Unreal Engine and SkookumScript will conquer the video game development world! Mua ha ha ha!”
This grant further bolsters Epic Games’ enthusiastic support for SkookumScript. Epic has been working with Agog Labs for several months to ready the SkookumScript Unreal Engine 4 Plugin for release on the Unreal Marketplace—its official release date has yet to be set, but the official Agog Labs Magic 8-Ball repeatedly insists “IT IS CERTAIN” and “YOU MAY RELY ON IT”. Stay tuned for more good news about SkookumScript!
