The world of video games on GNU / Linux it has germinated in an extreme way in recent years. We have gone from just having some very simple and elementary video games to seeing how titles for Linux already number in the thousands and some of them are known as AAA, that is, the great ones that gamers like so much. Well, this flourishing industry and interest in the world of digital entertainment is also leading to the improvement of other projects in a more accelerated way, such as OpenGL, Vulkan, certain libraries, etc.
Also, it is nothing new if we say that there are open source graphics engines. We have seen on other occasions announcements about open-source graphics engines and video games based on them that have Linux support. Well, today we add another one to the list and we present you Godot Engine. The project is open source and general purpose, although they have now shown a demo of a third person shooter title created with it. If you want to know more details about this project or are simply interested in starting to use it as a developer of a project you have in mind, you can see everything about it in the official website.As you can see in the download area of the web, it is available for multiple platforms, such as Windows, MacOS and of course for Linux. In addition, you will find both 32-bit and 64-bit packages and other additional downloadables for C # support (Mono Version), etc., as well as information about the community that develops it, and much material to discover and use the Godo Engine. ...
At the moment it is in several languages, under the MIT license, and allows the development of video games both 2D as 3D.
By the way, if you tried to access Wikipedia to find information about this or another project, say in passing that unfortunately the Wiki had closed in protest of the new copyright law that is intended to be approved today in the European Parliament and that could put an end to the content of Wikipedia, and many other sites… Fortunately, the European Union has backed off from the mobilization of European Internet users !!
