Anyone tried the Godot game/graphics library engine?
« on: December 16, 2018, 03:15 AM »
Old dc server admin and real life friend Gothic was telling me about the open source cross-platform Godot programming game/graphics library/engine: https://godotengine.org

Anyone tried it yet? It looks pretty neat.

Looks like it good 2d support as well as 3d.

I've downloaded it a few times but never really delved into it.

FYI it's also available on Steam if you would like the conveniences that come with Steam (auto updates, etc.).

A little over a year later and I'm still in the same boat I was the last time I said anything about it. I've downloaded it a few times and watched a few videos about the latest updates and features in the engine, but so far I haven't really attempted to do anything with it.

I also wanted to mention that it's also on Itch.io now if you'd prefer to use that over Steam.

Same here.  Same with Unity.  Just too much stuff, and too little time.
