Adding the main menu using Unreal Motion Graphics


If you have played any sort of game, you will find that all of them have a main menu. Let's add one to our game as well. Our main menu will be fairly simple. We will have the name of the game in the center. The game will load when the player taps below the name. The game's menus, UI, heads-up display (HUD), and so on—along with their functionalities—can be easily created using Unreal Motion Graphics (UMG). UMG is an easy-to-use tool with a simple and intuitive editor, which you can quickly learn to make your game's menus and such.
