Blueprints Visual Scripting for Unreal Engine is a step-by-step approach to building a fully functional game, one system at a time. Starting with a basic First Person Shooter template, each chapter will extend the prototype to create an increasingly complex and robust game experience. You will progress from creating basic shooting mechanics to gradually more complex systems that will generate user interface elements and intelligent enemy behavior. Focusing on universally applicable skills, the expertise you will develop in utilizing Blueprints can translate to other types of genres. By the time you finish the book, you will have a fully functional First Person Shooter game and the skills necessary to expand on the game to develop an entertaining, memorable experience for your players. From making customizations to player movement to creating new AI and game mechanics from scratch, you will discover everything you need to know to get started with game development using Blueprints and Unreal Engine 4.

We present BPAlt - a system which allows game developers to create and manage alternatives for Unreal Engine's Blueprints Visual Scripting System. BPAlt allows the user to create, save, organize and swap Blueprint alternatives for rapid testing and experimentation. We conducted a user study with 10 moderately skilled participants where we compared BPAlt to Unreal Engine alone for prototyping alternatives of game objects and mechanics in four different games. We found evidence that supporting alternatives with BPAlt is beneficial in the game developers' workflow. In response to the results of the user study we implemented new features for selectively merging parts of one alternative Blueprint to another. We also implemented an interface for alternative scenarios.
