Unreal Engine 4 is a suite of integrated tools for game developers to design and build games, simulations, and visualizations.

There are no shortcuts to creating immersive experiences that are believable to the human mind. VR requires complex scenes rendered at very high framerates. Because Unreal Engine is designed for demanding applications such as AAA games, filmmaking and photoreal visualization, it meets these requirements and provides a solid foundation to build content on all VR platforms - from PC to console to mobile

The guys will be demoing Robo Recall.

In creating Robo Recall, Epic developed a rendering solution specific to VR. The Forward Renderer supports high-quality lighting features, Multisample Anti-Aliasing (MSAA) and instanced stereo rendering to produce crisp, detailed images at 90 FPS.

Pocket Sized Hands hail from Abertay University where they were finalists in the prestigous Dare Academy contest.
These creative students have developed a VR game using UE4 and have demoed the game at various industry events including EGX.

Honeypot Espionage is an online VR multiplayer shooter, focused on stealth combat, in which you are put against other Spies in a combat arena. The last man standing wins. As a Spy, you are completely invisible, but you will begin to materialize if you move, fire a weapon or set a trap. If you don’t want killed, stay still. Think Predator meets SuperHot. The slower you move in real life the harder you are to see. You can set traps and decoys to trick other players into revealing their location to try to come out on top.
