Open source game engine 'Godot Engine' has a second 3.0 release candidate

Posted by , | Views: 5,551

Godot Engine [Official Site] is nearly ready to level up with the big 3.0 release, they've put out a second release candidate for testing.

There's also some bad news that comes with this. They've decided that the 3.0 release will not allow you to export projects built with C# as the export pipeline for it has not yet been finalised. You will still be able to build with it and the exporter is due quickly after the main 3.0 release, likely in February with the 3.0.1 release.

C# support as a whole is still a work in progress for Godot, so they could use the extra feedback from it.

They expect a final release candidate within a few days, which could end up as the final release build. See the full post here.

Are you using Godot to make something? Show it off in the comments, let's see what you've got!

Haha, great thumbnail Liam, love it!

Yep, I love this engine... they could still use more people's help reaching the next funding goal to hire Remí (akien) who works very hard on this project.

Hopefully they will be able to use Liberapay for donations as well, they said they would discuss it at FOSDEM with SPI.

I love what they are doing, this is one of the most promising projects right now, IMO.

The engine looks amazing.
Have to admire the guy's passion despite being offered recruitment from other major engine companies.
Now ... if only I wasn't so inept at coding to actually be able to use it.

The Godot guys are doing a great job!
We have been using godot 3.0 for a few months now for an upcoming transport business game. We develop under linux with all open source software.

Having a great engine is one thing but there have to be some great games made with it to show it off, right now I have exactly one game created with the engine, the one about the Werewolf Detective called Dog.

I haven't played with it in a while, but I do intend to get back to it at some point, if not to finish my own little game, then at least to finish my Walker reimplementation: https://twitter.com/Cybolic/status/624493160262184960
