Godot Engine Comments

In and out for years, but this is a big one!

about Godot Engine · ·

I've been in and out of game-dev for years now, as I mainly focus on my day to day job and develop little games for myself on the side for years now, GODOT , as previously mentioned, has just no competition. It's a complete package. It's being constantly updated, beaming with new features the development of the engine is clearly well-thought out. The devs focus on the important stuff making sure the engine goes in the direction it needs to.
Developing new games from scratch is really fun, intuitive and productive with Godot. I can only recommend this gem of an engine.

Not only it's completely free and open source but it's also completely multi platform and can export to many many platforms. It's also easy to understand, easy to develop and easy to extend!

By far the best engine if you want to start making games.

It’s not even a competition. Because it’s the ONLY complete, free, open-source engine that runs on Linux, Android, HTML5, and less cool platforms. And it’s very easy to get into. Including the scripting. And even if you want to mod the actual engine, it’s easy. I added a my first physics function right in the engine code in 15 minutes. which is only possible if it’s open-source.

Plus the actual developers are actually available for you to talk to. They react to bug reports, improve the Wiki, reply on IRC…

But actually I liked the internal elegance the best. Less concepts to learn. Everything is a Scene or a Resource. Everything is a node. Everything can be animated and automated and extended. In the same way. It’s how software should be designed. As a developer I really like the architecture.

And fingers crossed, we’ll get post-Cryengine- and -UE4-like graphics this summer!
And then it’s really not a contest anymore!
