For developers just starting in the industry, the task of choosing the best game engine can be daunting. Here, we'll try to address many of the issues concerning Godot so you can see if it's the right game engine for your project.

You can see our other in-depth guides on all the major game engines on this page.

While big game engines such as Unity and Unreal have become more and more accessible, the indie scene continues to rely on smaller engines that have a community of dedicated developers.

These hidden gems include Monogame and Construct, but Godot is becoming an increasingly popular choice. It actually became the sixth most used game engine on Itch.io this April, overtaking RPG Maker.

"Most developers will be bottlenecked by their own skills rather than [Godot's] tools"

Ryan Hewer, Little Red Dog

Godot started its life in 2007, the pet project of Argentinian developers Juan "reduz" Linietsky and Ariel "punto" Manzur. It didn't launch until 2014, however, and the long term aspect of the project was one of the reasons for its name, a reference to Samuel Beckett's famous play, Waiting for Godot.

Godot is a free open source engine relying on donations via its Patreon page. You can learn more about how the donations are used on this page.

Godot uses its own language, GDScript -- which you can learn more about below -- but it also supports visual scripting, C# and C++. With Godot, you can deploy games on desktop platforms such as Windows, macOS, Linux, UWP, and Haiku, as well as mobile platforms iOS and Android. You can learn more about Godot's features on this page.

Godot has been going from strength to strength these past few years and should continue to rise as the next build of the engine -- due to be released this year -- will provide better 3D support and a lot of new features.

What are the advantages of Godot?

Godot won't limit your creative endeavours, as it's capable of handling almost every project you can think of.

"Godot is an incredibly versatile engine whose limits in terms of occlusion culling and 3D performance are likely not more than a few months from being negligible," says Ryan Hewer, project director at Little Red Dog Games, referring to the release of Godot 4.0 later this year.

"At present, there's very, very little where I would say 'Godot is not best for that', with the exception of possibly very detailed first and third-person shooters. But with Godot 3.2 -- and more importantly Godot 4.0 -- you're going to see parity with most any other mainstream engine out there. Godot is advanced enough that I'm comfortable saying that most developers will be bottlenecked by their own skills rather than the tools in front of them."

"Godot's native measurement is the pixel, which is extraordinarily helpful when designing 2D pixel art games"

Shane Sicienski, Fat Gem Games

While it can handle all types of projects, 2D is where Godot clearly reveals its strengths, making it comparable to GameMaker, MonoGame and Construct. Godot actually comes with separate 2D and 3D engines.

"Godot shines when it comes to 2D, as that's the side of the engine that has the most users, and that received the most testing as well -- when it comes to 2D, I would recommend it to any professional game developer now," says Nathan Lovato, founder of GDQuest, a YouTube channel full of Godot tutorials and a GitHub page for open source Godot projects and plugins.

Fat Gem Games co-founder Shane Sicienski adds that Godot has one advantage over other engines when it comes to building 2D games.

"The native measurement in Godot is the pixel, which is extraordinarily helpful when designing 2D pixel art games. This made Godot much more attractive to us than engines like Unity, which use non-pixel-based measurement systems."

  • Godot has a node-based interface that makes it accessible

Godot has a visual scripting system using blocks that you can connect, making it an accessible tool even for beginners. You can just drag and drop all sorts of information using nodes and scenes. You can learn more about the nodes system on this page and see how to get started with visual scripting here.

"If you ask any professional who's tried the engine, they will tell you about how intuitive the editor and the node system are," Lovato says.

The node structure is actually one of the reasons Little Red Dog Games made the decision to use Godot.

"The tools we were using previously were insufficient with what we wanted to accomplish next with a 2D/3D hybrid game so we started looking for open-source alternatives," Hewer says. "In Godot we found a streamlined, intuitive engine with a node and scene structure that allowed us the flexibility and modularity to structure our future games the way we wanted."

  • Godot's scripting language is intuitive

Godot has its own scripting language inspired by Python, but it also features official support for C# and C++.

"The editor is a Godot game, so you can code plugins the same way you code your games"

Nathan Lovato, GDQuest

"We started creating Primal Light in Python as a hobby project to learn about game development, but as we began to take the project more seriously, we decided to port what we had to a full-fledged engine," Sicienski says. "[Godot] uses a dedicated programming language called GDScript which is very Pythonic, so we felt right at home."

GDScript is more accessible and friendly to novice developers than C# or C++ for example.

"With a programming language designed specifically for game developers, you can prototype and write gameplay code quickly," Lovato adds. "Godot has a unique system called GDNative that allows you to use languages like C or C++ to write high-performance game systems, without having to recompile or maintain a custom version of the engine. It also gives you access to third-party languages like Python, Rust, D, or recently TypeScript.

"Another unique aspect of the engine is that the editor is a Godot game, so you can code plugins the same way you code your games. And this gives you a sense of the power of the UI tools in the engine: all the editor, the dockers, tabs, and so on are a showcase of Godot's UI system."

  • Godot is free and open source

One of the most important advantages of Godot is that it's free and open source, removing what Sicienski describes as the "stress of licenses or subscription fees." Hewer adds that the open-source nature of Godot was an immediate draw for Little Red Dog Games.

"If there's something you would like to see in Godot, you're completely empowered to build it yourself"

Ryan Hewer, Little Red Dog

"[It] can't be underscored enough -- Godot is not an engine that can change terms on developers without their consent, and if there's something you would like to see in Godot, you're completely empowered to build it yourself."

Being able to create proposals for new features or contribute to bug fixes and improvements also appealed to Lovato.

"Nowadays, I work in free software, and I appreciate the openness of open source projects a lot," he says. "Godot's open source nature brings other significant advantages. Access to the source code means that a professional team can optimise the engine for their projects.

"The companies using Godot contribute bug fixes and new features to the engine and it's quite stable as a result, and development has only gotten faster since the first release. As a professional or as a game development company, you can just get in touch directly with core developers and participate in the program's growth."

  • It's easy to recruit Godot developers

If your ambition is to create a game with a team and eventually grow your own studio, you may want to consider how easy it is to find recruits who are experienced in using Godot. Thankfully, Hewer says it's "not difficult at all."

"There's a surplus of extremely skilled Godot devs out there and a shortage of legitimate employers who use Godot in their products," he adds. "While this will no doubt change over time as adoption grows, we've been very lucky to find great people to join our firm among the Godot community."

What are the disadvantages of Godot?

  • Godot isn't ready for complex 3D projects

As already touched upon, 3D is not where Godot shines, as its level design tools and rendering engine are not as powerful as other technology.

"I think Godot doesn't do 3D quite as well as Unity or Unreal," says Benjamin Anderson, creator of the HeartBeast Gamedev Academy. "This is something the main Godot contributors are working one."

A new 3D rendering engine is currently in production though, along with other features.

"Lead developer Juan Linietsky is currently working on the 4.0 branch of Godot, porting Godot's rendering system to bleeding-edge Vulkan," Fat Gem Games co-founder Jeff Nixon says. "With this overhaul, Godot's 3D support should be comparable to larger engines."

Lovato continues: "Godot's 3D engine in version 3 lacks optimisations to render large game worlds. And its performances are not that of Unity or Unreal in general."

  • Godot has a small community

As often when dealing with smaller game engines, having a limited community can be an issue. With something as popular as GameMaker, for instance, all of your questions will often be answered on forums already.

"Godot still does not have as many users as the mastodons of the game industry," Lovato says. "It doesn't have the budget of a large tech corporation like Epic Games. Godot is still a bit of an underdog in the game development space.

"I'm part of the people who give support and who make educational resources for Godot and I have to admit that there are not as many resources as you'd find for Unity, that has a much larger user base. But I'd say we've reached a point where there's plenty to get started, and more and more users are beginning to create tutorials."

Hewer adds: "[There's] a meager offering of assets to draw from. There is a healthy DIY mentality to Godot developers which can be frustrating for novices looking for tutorials to do something where a bounty of tutorials (and asset packs) exist for Unity."

"The licenses of console development tools are not compatible with free software"

Nathan Lovato, GDQuest

  • Godot doesn't support consoles

Because Godot is an open source project, you can't develop games for consoles with it. The engine would need to be licensed as a company to do so -- something that's not on the roadmap for its lead developers.

"If you want to publish your games to consoles, you need to get in touch with a third-party because the licenses of console development tools are not compatible with free software," Lovato explains.

That doesn't mean you can't port your game to consoles though. Suitably, the engine's co-founder, Ariel Manzur, has a company that specialises in porting Godot games to consoles, Lone Wolf Technology.

Some features found in bigger engines like Unity and Unreal have not yet been implemented in Godot. For instance, there's no built-in sprite editor.

"There's currently a lack of occlusion culling, and particle attractors aren't in the current build," Hewer says. "It's entirely possible to do AAA development in Godot, if you've got the capability to do AAA development with anything else.

"Integration of third-party libraries isn't as straightforward as with other, more established engines. Other than that, there has never been a feature that we couldn't implement because we like using Godot, but then again, we're not developing extreme high-visual performance games, so it's unlikely that we'll ever push the engine to its limits the way other developers might."

Advice for new Godot users

  • Get in touch with the Godot community

As is often the case when an engine community is small, there's a close-knit group of people that can help you get started. You'll find all the different ways to reach out to the community on this page.

"My experience has been mainly with the Godot YouTube community and the Godot Discord," Anderson says. "Both have been very helpful to me. Some people like the Unity docs more than Godot's, but I've actually had an easier time navigating the Godot docs and figuring out stuff through them."

Nixon points out that the helpful community is one of the principal reasons Fat Gem Games loves the engine.

"We regularly ask questions on the official Godot Q&A site, as well as the Godot Discord and Reddit. These channels tend to produce better answers for Godot-specific questions than the Game Development Stack Exchange.

"There's something about being a small, often-overlooked engine that makes Godot devs a very tight community"

Ryan Hewer, Little Red Dog

"The lead developers have also been personally friendly and helpful in showing us support and highlighting our game, which we could not envision happening had we been a small developer making our game in Unity or Unreal. There's a sense that the devs and community at large are genuinely happy we're utilising their engine to create our passion project."

Hewer adds: "There's something about being a small, often-overlooked engine that makes Godot devs a very tight community, possibly because we're our own best cheerleaders."

  • Try it: Godot is small and there are resources to get started

The engine itself is very small and boots quickly, so the best thing to do if you want to see if Godot is for you is to try it -- you can find it on Steam for instance, or on the engine's site.

"You only need to download the engine, that takes like 30 megabytes," Lovato says. "Double-click on the executable, and you can use it instantly: you don't need to install anything. There's also a plug-and-play mentality to Godot, where you can fit everything you need on a small USB stick and you're good to go.

"With the fantastic engines that we have access to nowadays, part of the choice boils down to personal taste. Even as a contributor to the Godot engine, I still love other tools, and see that we have several feature-packed options. That's why I recommend trying different engines to see what is best for you. [There's] a step-by-step Getting Started guide in the official manual."

Godot uses its own scripting language inspired by Python, GDScript

GDQuest has also put together two free curated learning paths to begin with Godot, one for programming beginners and hobbyists and one for experienced developers. With these, you can get started hands-on, test the engine, and see if it's a good fit for you.

Hewer concludes: "I see young people everyday with this misguided idea that Unity and Unreal are the only two engines worth learning, and this completely ignores the fact that the gamedev ecosystem is huge, diverse and that games are made with a wide variety of both proprietary and public engines.

"Consolidation around a small number of for-profit entities is not healthy for business and not healthy for learning programming either. Godot doesn't compete with other engines because it's not structured for profit, so our interest in encouraging developers to try it out stems from both a desire to dispel myths about gamedev, and to see growth in the number of people actively working to improve something that will always be free for everyone.

"I also would encourage devs to look at GameMaker, MonoGame, and other tools while they're at it. Engines don't define the success of your game, so find an engine that does what you need it to do and is comfortable and intuitive for you to work with."

Engine 3d godot

Godot (game engine)

Free, cross-platform, and open-source game engine

Godot (/ˈɡɒdoʊ/)[a] is a cross-platform, free and open-sourcegame engine released under the MIT license. It was initially developed by Argentine software developers Juan Linietsky and Ariel Manzur[5] for several companies in Latin America prior to its public release.[6] The development environment runs on multiple operating systems including Linux, BSDs, macOS, and Microsoft Windows. It is designed to create both 2D and 3D games targeting PC, mobile, and web platforms.

Features[edit]

Godot aims to offer a fully integrated game development environment. It allows developers to create a game, needing no other tools beyond those used for content creation (visual assets, music, etc.). The engine's architecture is built around the concept of a tree of "nodes". Nodes are organized inside of "scenes", which are reusable, instanceable, inheritable, and nestable groups of nodes. All game resources, including scripts and graphical assets, are saved as part of the computer's file system (rather than in a database). This storage solution is intended to facilitate collaboration between game development teams using software version control systems.[7]

Supported platforms[edit]

The engine supports deployment to multiple platforms and allows specification of texture compression and resolution settings for each platform. Even though Godot Website provides binaries only for Linux, macOS and Microsoft Windows, the software can be tweaked to work on additional operating systems, like BSD. The Engine supports multiple platforms including desktop and mobile. Currently supported platforms as of Godot 3.3.4[2] Edit this on Wikidata are

  • Mobile platforms Android, iOS
  • Desktop platforms Linux, macOS, Microsoft Windows (Universal Windows Platform), BSD
  • Web platform HTML5, WebAssembly.[8]
  • Virtual/Extended reality platforms HTC Vive, Valve Index, Oculus Rift, Oculus Go, Oculus Quest, all Microsoft MR headsets, Apple's ARKit and many more.[4]

There is also a web-based[9] editor hosted by the Godot community available for testing purposes. Even though the Godot engine can be run on consoles, Godot does not support it officially as it is an open-source project rather than a licensed company and they cannot publish platform-specific code under open-source license. However, it is still possible to port games to consoles thanks to services provided by third-party companies.[10]

Scripting[edit]

Godot supports a variety of programming languages for making games, including the integrated language GDScript, C++[11] and C#. Additionally, the engine includes GDNative, a facility for creating bindings with other languages. Officially-supported GDNative languages include C and C++.[12] Community-supported languages include Rust, Nim, JavaScript, Haskell, Clojure, Swift, and D.[13]Visual coding is also supported, via the built-in language VisualScript, designed to be a visual equivalent to GDScript.[14]

The Godot editor includes a text editor with auto indentation, syntax highlighting and code completion. It also features a debugger with the ability to set breakpoints and program stepping.[15]

GDScript[edit]

Screenshot of editing a GDScript file using the built-in script editor of Godot 3.3

Godot has its own built-in scripting language, GDScript,[15] a high-level, dynamically typedprogramming language which is syntactically similar to Python. Unlike Python, GDScript is optimized for Godot's scene-based architecture and can specify strict typing of variables. Godot's developers have stated that many alternative third-party scripting languages such as Lua, Python, and Squirrel were tested before deciding that using a custom language allowed for superior optimization and editor integration. In version 4.0, a new feature called Typed array[16] was implemented on GDScript. This allows users to easily change a regular array to typed and vice-versa without changing much code.[15]

A simple "Hello world" program can be written like so:

func_ready():print("Hello World")

More complex programs, such as this one generating a Fibonacci sequence, are also possible:

func_ready():varnterms=5print("Fibonacci sequence:")foriinrange(nterms):print(FibRecursion(i))funcFibRecursion(n):ifn<=1:returnnelse:return(FibRecursion(n-1)+FibRecursion(n-2))

Rendering[edit]

Godot's graphics engine uses OpenGL ES 3.0 for all supported platforms; otherwise, OpenGL ES 2.0 is used. Future support for Vulkan is being developed, that also includes the possibility of support for Metal using MoltenVK.[17] The engine supports normal mapping, specularity, dynamic shadows using shadow maps, baked and dynamic Global Illumination, and full-screen post-processing effects like bloom, DOF, HDR, and gamma correction. A simplified shader language, similar to GLSL, is also incorporated. Shaders can be used for materials and post-processing. Alternatively, they can be created by manipulating nodes in a visual editor.

Godot also includes a separate 2D graphics engine that can operate independently of the 3D engine. The 2D engine supports features such as lights, shadows, shaders, tile sets, parallax scrolling, polygons, animations, physics, and particles. It is also possible to mix 2D and 3D using a 'viewport node'.

Other features[edit]

Godot contains an animation system with a GUI for skeletal animation, blending, animation trees, morphing, and real-time cutscenes. Almost any variable defined or created on a game entity can be animated.[18] The engine uses Bullet for 3D physics simulation.[19]

Additional features include:

History[edit]

Screenshot of development build of Godot 4.0 running using Vulkan(dev build, May 10, 2021

Godot's development was started by Juan 'reduz' Linietsky and Ariel 'punto' Manzur in 2007.[20][21] Linietsky stated in a presentation that the name "Godot" was chosen due to its relation to Samuel Beckett's play Waiting for Godot, as it represents the never-ending wish of adding new features in the engine, which would get it closer to an exhaustive product, but never will.[22] In February 2014, the source code for Godot was released to the public on GitHub under the MIT License.[23]

On 15 December 2014, Godot reached version 1.0, marking the first stable release and the addition of lightmapping, navmesh support, and more shaders.[24] Version 1.1 was released on 21 May 2015, adding improved auto-completion in the code editor, a visual shader editor, a new API to the operating system for managing screens and windows, a rewritten 2D engine, new 2D navigation polygon support, a much improved BlenderCollada exporter, and a new dark theme.[25] The then-new 2D engine included shaders, materials, independent Z ordering per node, lights, shadows with polygonal occluders, normal mapping, and distance-field font support. Godot joined the Software Freedom Conservancy on 4 November 2015.[26]

Godot 2.0 was released on 23 February 2016. New features included better scene instancing and inheritance, a new file system browser, multiple scene editing, and an enhanced debugger.[27][6] This was followed by version 2.1 in August 2016, which introduced an asset database, profiler, and plugin API.[28]

Version 3.0 was released on 29 January 2018, adding a brand new PBR renderer implemented in OpenGL ES 3.0, virtual reality compatibility, and C# support (via Mono).[19] Version 3.0 also added the Bullet physics engine in addition to the engine's built-in 3D physics back end and was the first version of Godot to be included in Debian. Godot 3.1 was released on 13 March 2019, with the most notable features being the addition of statically typed § GDScript, a script class system for GDScript and an OpenGL ES 2.0 renderer for older devices and mobile devices.[29] Godot 3.2 was released on 29 January 2020, with the most notable features being massive documentation improvements, greatly improved C# support, and support for glTF 2.0 files.[30] The lead developer, Juan Linietsky, spent most of his time working on a separate Vulkan branch that would later be merged into master for 4.0,[31] so work on 3.2 was mostly done by other contributors. Work on 3.2 continued as a long-term support release for a year,[30] including Godot 3.2.2 on 26 June 2020, a large patch release that added features such as OpenGL ES 2.0 batching, and C# support for iOS.[32] On 17 March 2021, the versioning strategy was changed to better reflect semantic versioning, with a 3.3 stable branch and a 3.x branch for backporting features to a future 3.4 release.[33] On 21 April 2021, Godot 3.3 was released, with features such as ARM support on macOS, Android AAB support, MP3 support, FBX support, WebXR support, and a web editor.[34]

On 22 June 2016, Godot received a $20,000 Mozilla Open Source Support (MOSS) “Mission Partners” award to be used to add WebSockets, WebAssembly and WebGL 2.0 support.[8] Later, with Miguel de Icaza's support, Godot received a $24,000 donation from Microsoft to implement C# as a scripting language in Godot.[35]

On 3 February 2020, Godot received a $250,000 Epic Games award to improve graphics rendering and the engine's built-in game development language, GDScript.[36] On July 8, 2020, Juan Linietsky mentioned that the Epic Games award will be used to permanently hire himself and George (Marques) for 2 years in order to free donation funds for new purposes.[37]

On 10 February 2021, Godot received a $120,000 grant from Kefir.[38]

Usage[edit]

Many games by OKAM Studio have been made using Godot, including Dog Mendonça & Pizza Boy, which uses the Escoria adventure game extension.[40] Additionally, it has been used in West Virginia's high school curriculum, due to its ease-of-use for non-programmers and what is described as a "wealth of learning materials that already exist for the software".[41]

[edit]

Godot as an international project has an active community around the world. Some community members are an admin of local Godot groups. "Godot Francophone", "Godot Engine Russia" and "Godot Iran" are the biggest Godot local communities.[42][44]
