The Nitobi announcement was certainly big news, but today brought something equally as impressive; possibly more so depending on your interests. Epic Games, the studio behind hits such as Unreal Tournament and Gears of War, announced Flash support within their hugely successful Unreal Engine 3. As a life-long gamer and a developer, I couldn't be more excited about this announcement! Below is a video showing off the Unreal Engine running in Flash Player 11.
The support from Epic shows that Flash is moving onto new frontiers for the technology and will continue to play an ever-expanding role in game development.
