So I have an option to get a license from either the Unity or Unreal Engine. I've been using the free version of the Unity engine to advance in game development. Then I saw that Unreal engine was also quite popular and was more common in the gaming industry. It uses a version of C++ but that's not a problem as I'm always looking to learn more and I'm already familiar with adept C++.

Unreal is much cheaper being only $19.99 a month so I'd like to know the pros and cons of both engines if anyone has happened to use them.

Blubcreator : I try the UDK and I found it to be very complex in terms of simple movements and computer needs. UDK I found out does not really work well on laptops so using a keyboard with mouse pad was not what unreal wanted the engine to be used for. The info on unreal website on how to use it is really not helpful, it took me 2 days to find a simple way to move a mouse but only for non-laptops. lastly UDK lags any computer so watch out when you wanted to upgrade to windows 10, it might not even work.

mastergame : So I take it I'd need a PC with a bit more processing power than a laptop to run it?

I currently have 6GB of ram and a quad core with 1.2 GHz speed. I've had no trouble running Unity engine on it and I have a mouse so the mousepad is no concern. So should I stick with Unity or will I be able to run UDK?

I'm hoping to test out all my software on a different computer when Windows 10 comes out so it doesn't mess everything else up.

I'd say stay with Unity. Seems to have a much more active community to get help with. Soooo many games are using unity engine these days.

If you get the Unity licence, you can spend $20 for 1 month of UDK licence. Your UDK will then continue to work forever, however you won't get any of the UDK updates and if you need to reinstall you may be out of luck. Is a good way to test both really indepth I guess.
