What is UNREAL?
That's the question that everyone has been asking. UNREAL is more than your
average first person action game. It places players in a stunningly lifelike
three-dimensional world, where they can pratically smell the stench of dank dungeon
caverns, feel the hot breath of menacing creatures, and experience the sensations
of falling, swimming and flying. Running on either Windows 95 or Windows NT, UNREAL
- Highly detailed polygonal characters

The UNREAL environment is continuous. Though levels do exist, you travel between them
smoothly. The entire world, whether you're playing by yourself or you're on a large network game server, is melded into one continuous global environment.
The UNREAL environment is permeated by music and sound. The sounds of wind, flowing water, flickering flames, footsteps, and monsters flow throughout the Unreal world against a sonorous
backdrop of atmospheric music.
The UNREAL environment is richly illuminated. Torches flicker and light sources create varying levels of luminance on their surroundings. Monsters, as well as players, cast shadows, which can often be seen around corners before the source is fully revealed.
The UNREAL environment uses a full six degree of freedom geometry and physics model. This means you can look at the world from any angle and explore complex architecture with features like multiple overlapping bridges and domed ceilings. If a designer can envision a level, he can build
it in Unreal.
