What do you like best?

Godot has been incredibly easy to use. I am getting into game technology for the first time and I've had no problems while using Godot. It is a very easy to use and navigate. Great platform to both work on 3d or 2d games and add your code easily to each element. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

As a developer who uses C++ plugins, I would like Godot to have more documentation for these plugins. This may help a broader community develop as building games with these C++ plugins as they can very much advance the games created using Godot. There is also not an easy way to test multiplayer games while in the editor, instead you must go to the main menu and then click run on the individual project you want to test. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would highly recommend Godot to beginners. It has great resources for people to learn the software and integrate their code with the elements they create in the software. It also very easy to package your game after finishing and sharing the code and game with others. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am creating different gaming programs with Godot. I've easily been able to add AI, networking, and graphics to my games through Godot. It has also been a great tool in order to learn about game technology as whole as a beginner entering the game industry. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It is very similar to Unity it's competitor. Easy to use, nice layout, importing assets is very easy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Its has a lot of limitations especially when it comes to 3D. The assets are not a graphically nice as you would expect for a higher level developed game. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Its a nice platform, but I do not think its a front runner for assets. We use it only when requested for a project. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We onnly use Godot when we have to. The problems are some clients request we use Godot. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like that it is an engine of creation of video game developed for the creation of the same in any platform that we want, from PC to Android. You can also export games developed on PC, the language you use for development is C # which is very versatile and allows you to tailor development exactly what is sought in these development classes. It also facilitates the development in 2d or 3d without the need to plagiarize or anything of that besides that it is possible to work with both motors without any problem also it is necessary to note that it is an open source tool that can be used by any person that wishes it without any problem. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that it is something closed in terms of the languages of development and the need to have a large computer to be able to take advantage but I think they are characteristics that can not be changed or at least not as one would like. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

When developing programmable content in 2d or 3d is one of the best tools, since it is very dynamic and versatile. It really is very intuitive in addition to that it puts on screen a viewer as it develops. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has been useful for the resolution of certain projects where it has been necessary to develop mobile applications in the form of video games where it is necessary to recreate animations either in 2D or 3D which is not possible or is more complex if other tools are used.

I have switched from unity to Godot recently. this game engine is truly great, I like the amount of in the size of the editor, this game engine is really easy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It's open source on github.So that I can clone the repository and run godot on Windows,Mac,Linux easily with the latest code base.

Godot works with Linux which is its best advantage.

Godot has in-built Scripting editor,animation editor,sound manager so there is less switching of windows while working with Godot.

There are is an asset store for Boilerplates,plugin which still is in infancy.

You can even use VSCode's Godot plugin to edit GDScript. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Godot Engine3.0 build still has some rendering issues with opengl.There are some bugs and issue within the game engine itself which are hard to spot while focusing on making the game itself.

Editor GUI looks cumbersome and unpolished but can be ignored in terms of tools it provides. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Godot is very easy to work with.But before making game with godot,think about the game itself,Otherwise it will turn in unorganized mess.

Use blender for 3d purpose as Blender work well with godot in terms of import/export 3d object with textures.

Prefer not to use alpha,beta branches to publish game with as there will still be issue to fix with. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are working on hobby game projects with Godot.It's a great tools for prototyping and making small games,thanks to its GUI editor. We participited in Game Jam this year and published a game on itch.io all using godot.

Godot is easy to work with.Scene management is simple and straightforward. It's in-build scripting editor makes in Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The UI is simple, things are laid out in a way that makes sense and it relatively easy to find without hassle. I feel like it was made for developers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

One major major downside is that it's hard to find good documentation. I feel like it's lacking in that realm. Also if they would improve a tiny flaw I had trouble understand when first starting: navigation of properties. It was a bit weird to drill deep into a property in a paginated bread-crum kind of way. Maybe some education to the user would help in that case. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Well the decision was to use Unity or Godot. It was a little easier to make since we're making only 2D games. I don't think Godot is as competitive in the 3D space, unity is just the gold standard there. It being open source is a huge plus. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

There is so much that I love about Godot! The script editor is smart in sensing the language that you use within the editor, The viewport is WISYWIG, The inspector is contextual and easy to use, and its ALL FREE! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The asset marketplace which is built-in is pretty empty. The engine is built GPL so alot is community built, which is great, except when no one build any assets for the store....I might just do that! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Blender + Godot or Krita/Inkscape+Godot what else do you need to start building your indie project! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

ITS TOTAL FREE - Have a game Idea...Godot has made it to where all you need is skills and time.

It is an amazing companion to other free asset creation software such as GIMP and Blender. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It's incredibly easy to get started with Godot. It's cross platform, simple, and intuitive. The community and tutorials are amazing! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Initially I disliked GDScript, but upon further usage and taking to time to learn it - it's not so bad Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely check out tutorials on YouTube, and game examples on GitHub (The lundum dare projects are ideally the best!) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Godot is far easier to use than other game editors. A large benefit is time it takes to get a game shipped to the market. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

An integrated development environment, that includes its own script editor, scene editor, UI layout editor, animations tools, etc. It has almost professional level capabilities. Also, the One click deploy feature has no match in other open source game engines.

The engine has also gathered a quite impressive community, which contributes with videotutorials and support.

The 2D renderer is superb, probably the most advanced among open source engines. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Official documentation is a bit scarce, but that is changing quickly.

The 3D renderer was outdated, and its refactoring was delayed until Vulkan release. Then, they decided to use GL ES 3 instead of Vulkan. My main goal was to develop 3D games, and after considering carefully, I decided that wasnt worth to wait (seems that I was right) and ended up using Unity3D for my 2D project.

The animated mesh importer is very limited, supporting only .obj files. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Not sure if going for GL ES 3 is a smart move. Anyway, if you are not looking for photorealistic graphics, and your modelling tool can properly export to OBJ, this is your engine. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I tried to use Godot to create a 3D RPG. I quickly realized that it wouldnt meet our graphic quality criteria. Then I reconsidered it for a 2D project, expecting that the included tileset editor would perform much better than Unity3D (which still has none). Yet, the lack of proper documentation prevented me from using it and in the end, investing the time in mastering unity would bring better results in the long term.

Yet, for people working only on 2D projects, Godot is a serious choice that I recommend even above commercial engines. No license issues, no limitations... Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
