Unreal Source (formerly Unreal Slackers) is an independent publication dedicated to helping developers make sense of the Unreal Engine ecosystem. It was founded by Nick Pfisterer, a freelance technical artist and independent game developer who has been working with Unreal Engine for over a decade.

It started life as a Slack chat in 2015, then moved to Discord in 2016 where it grew to become a popular resource for thousands of Unreal developers around the world. Today, our Discord server is the best place to discuss Unreal Engine on the platform, regardless of your background or experience level.

In 2023, we changed our identity and upgraded our website from a simple landing page to a place where Unreal developers can keep up with the latest news and trends in the Unreal Engine ecosystem.
