Godot is a free MIT-licensed game engine for both 2D and 3D games. It can create games for most PC, mobile and web platforms. The development environment runs on Linux, macOS and Windows.
Godot games can be written in C++, C#, languages with GDNative bindings (Rush, Nim, D) or godots own scripting language GDScript.
Godot games can be made to run on Linux, macOS, Windows, BSD, Android, iOS and HTML5 and WebAssembly.
Godot supports OpenGL ES 3.0 with fallback to OpenGL ES 2.0 if 3.0 is not supported. Godot has its own built-in shader language similar to GLSL.
Vulkan is not supported.
Godot got a $20000 grant from Mozilla in 2016. Those funds were earmarked for WebSocket, WebAssembly and WebGL 2.0 support.
Godot got a $250000 grant from Epic Games in February 2020
