More programming languages in Godot, want to help?

There is a common misundertanding in the industry about us, Godot devs, trying to reinvent the wheel because we like it. This could not be further away from the truth.

Help us complete Godot's API reference!

The class reference has seen a lot of work over the last 3 months, and could still use more hands to help document all the classes, methods, constants, member variables and signals for the complete Godot API! With a handful of contributors it's a huge job, but with the help of the community we can make it pretty fast!

Godot aims for mainstream

APRIL FOOLS' DAY JOKE! -- The most important feedback we got at GDC is that Godot is different from the most popular game engines, and thus confusing and quite badly known in the industry. So in order to become more popular we decided to make Godot more like the other mainstream engines, by taking some radical decisions.

Home, sweet home
