    Game Length?

    I was just wondering, on average how long are all the games on UDK. Just a quickie but it would help if someone knew.

    Thanks

    however long you make them--you can't really say since some games are puzzle games which can last forever

      Given that so far only one game has been commercially released, it would be difficult to say

        Games can be any length, but the question is fun factor. I've played hour eating games because it was fun, i.e Puzzle games, Fallout 3. However, I've never finished a boring game.

          How long must a game be before it can be called a game?

              1 1/2 hours to 2 hours, otherwise it's called a demo.

                I think in general, like six maybe? One of what I'm working on is like three, but it's focused on multiplayer, and another one is like ten but that's a totally different thing.

                  What about Civilization 4? I've been playing that for several years now.

                      A game is a game regardless of length. A game people would want to pay for should have some longevity. If it's made for replayability (say, Tetris) then it can be fairly simple. If it's made for a single playing then you'll have to get that longevity through length.

                        That's a brilliant way of putting it.

                          I remember playing commando at the arcades years ago for 10p (used to live in the UK) I had the pleasure of a game lasting maybe 30-40 seconds hehe. But it WAS fun and got more of my cash!

                              You make the game that you want to play, and don't worry about how long it is.
