Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

You can build to HTML5, so yes they can be hosted on the web.

I don't know if Newgrounds.com will host a UE4 game, but that would be on their policy.

Hello, mikepurvis! Thank you for your answer. I just looked on creations of Psionic Games - Ghostscape 3D, Escape Eternity and The Aberration Inside. They all was created on Unity for HTML5. And I thought: -"Can I make something similar on UE4 12 or 11 for Newgrounds?". So, I hope this can work.

If you haven't already seen it, I would also give PlayCanvas a shot (https://playcanvas.com/).

I think UE4 is great as a cross platform engine, but generating an HTML5 version of low level code can be pretty bloated. Whereas PlayCanvas is built to be as optimized as possible for the web. The cons are PlayCanvas is a lot less mature than UE4.

Does the bloat you talk about apply to blueprints as well?
