Unity Engine is best for solo and small team projects, using C# programming. Unreal Engine uses C++ language and blueprints (visual scripts) that allow more experienced game developers working in larger teams to prototype games with more complex graphics.
In Unity's scripting, there are built-in methods for every script that get called by the engine at preloaded times. They are named Start, Awake and Update. Start and Awake methods are used for initializing and setting certain objects and components on game objects, Start runs when object is created while Awake is executed when game is first executed. Update method is used for checking or updating variables on each frame game runs through.
