Unreal Engine


Unreal Engine is the world’s most open and advanced real-time 3D creation tool. Continuously evolving to serve not only its original purpose as a state-of-the-art game engine, today it gives creators across industries the freedom and control to deliver cutting-edge content, interactive experiences, and immersive virtual worlds. 

Unreal Engine is part of Epic Games; the same family as TwinMotion. Unreal provides a platform for Spatial Designers to have the creative freedom to explore, evaluate, validate, and present your designs in a high-fidelity environments. We recommend exploring Unreal if you are interested in VR, AR, Experience Design, Gaming & Visualisation.
