Epic Games has finally made free download of the tech demo of “A Boy and his Kite” to test our setup to display all the visual effects. In addition, a standalone version is also available for download.
Offering high performance visual effects, the graphics engine Unreal Engine 4 of Epic Games is increasingly used in future games.

The development studio finally released this tech demo, so that all users of the graphics engine can freely download the standalone editor version or the version on the official website of the Unreal Engine at this address.
