Since I have finally established my shapeshifting mechanic, I have returned to using Virtus’ tutorial (Virtus, 2018) on building an RPG in Unreal Engine (Unreal Engine, 2021) in order to help me complete the rest of the RPG mechanics.
I have made a lot of progress this weekend, as I used integer variables to establish a levelling up system, complete with experience points to advance the game, as well as a very basic quest system. The quest system seems to revolve around changing the text that states the objectives of a quest in the UI to advance the narrative of the game.
In this video, I explain how I built this system.
