For this tutorial you will be needing Unreal Engine and Adobe Photoshop. In Unreal Engine I expect you to know how to open en create a new project, how to import assets into the project, how to create and apply materials, and how to save your project. You should also have the Starter Content enabled. In Photoshop I expect you to know how to open and create new files, how to edit the size of an image/file, how to create layers, and how to save it.
