EVENT DESCRIPTION:
Join us for this LIVE Intro to Godot 2d Game Design Workshop!
If you are a complete beginner to Godot and making games, or just want to brush up on your skills, this workshop is perfect for you! We’ll cover the basics of Godot, a free and open source software for making 2d and 3d games. Godot is similar to Unity but does not operate on a “freemium, JK not freemium, JK takebacksies” model. Instead Godot is owned by no-one and is instead developed by a non-profit and is free to use forever!

The end result will look like the event photo with pre-made assets that will be available for download. If we have time we might also cover a goal to reach + win message and maybe some quick and easy things like a jump sound effect. Going forward we’ll just provide the previous workshop’s entire project in a zip file, which will include all the assets and code!

OPEN TO BEGINNERS:
Can you draw a stick figure? Well then, you are qualified to attend this event!
BEFORE YOU ARRIVE:
Godot is cross-platform and runs equally well on Linux, Windows, and Mac computers. But before you arrive make sure your OS supports the latest version of Godot 4.1.2. Which can be downloaded here:

Download the project here: Download

To download, click the green “Code” button and select “Download ZIP”. We’ll be using the “Workshop0” folder.
If you need a laptop we have two spare lab computers that can be rented for use during the workshop.

WHAT IS GODOT?
The Godot Engine is a free, all-in-one, cross-platform game engine that makes it easy for you to create 2D and 3D games.
