Godot Engine Reviews

about Godot Engine · ·

It is open source and a very alive and friendly community.
You can create amazing games with it that run as good as games made with unity.
But it is much simpler.
If you take the simplicity of GameMaker and the tools of unity...You'll end up with this great piece of software !


The community is amazing and the development rate is unmatched.

  • More important than the engine itself is the community around the engine. Because when you get stuck somewhere, those are the ones who will help lift you up or will abandon you. The Godot Community is extremely helpful responsive, and noob friendly!
  • Unlike Unity3D with Godot you've got everything in one place. Your code editor, your 2D/3D editor and pretty much everything that has to do with the game.
  • It's cross-platform. The editor itself runs on Windows, Linux and Mac. Your exported game can run on all those plus Mobile platforms: iOS, Android, BlackBerry OS.
  • The assets pipeline is straight forward. Just drag and drop them into the editor and you're set!
  • GDScript is a python-like scripting language and it is super easy! with amazing documentation. If you're experienced with any other programming language you can pick it up in less than 3 hours.
  • You can have a scene within another scene, this way you don't step on each others' toes when working in a team! This Scene oriented design is weird at first but it won't take you long before you find out that this approach is so genius that it'll make everything else you know sound out-dated.
  • I can go non stop about all the good stuff I love about it. just download it and give it a shot. the whole thing is like 40MB or something :D

Godot is the best of its kind

Godot is the only game engine I currently use. But I've tried tons of them, and I spent years looking for the right game engine for my projects before I found it. I truly think Godot is the best open source game engine - especially for 2D games.
