Unreal Engine for Low End Smartphones and PC
TLDR: Title, is it possible?
Before, I am sorry if what I'm about to ask has already been answered. (I tried searching the forum and the answerhub, but the filter range is just too broad, really) I'm a newbie software developer, and I looked at comparisons and EULAs and TOS etc on the available engines. Unreal Engine kind of attracted me in the end. Un*ty is stingy like yay and Fl*sh is more or less abandoned, while others are mostly unheard of.
I read the basics and I know Unreal Engine projects can be made for smartphones, but is it possible to make a game for low-end smartphones and PC? My friend kept telling me that games made with Unreal Engine usually left his laptop really hot despite only idling on the main menu. I was wondering if I should or shouldn't try using Unreal Engine to build a game.
When I said low-end, I mean really low-end, like a phone with 512mb RAM. Not 3d is fine, but can a 2d game run on that kind of device if I use Unreal Engine? There are settings for performances and also optimizations; I know, but if they're all maxed, can it be played at all?
Thanks before and sorry for the longpost!
