HeartBeast has a very good, quick tutorial on how to make a Pixel Platformer - Godot 3.2 on his youtube channel. He is also publishing a The 1-bit Godot Course.

Many of you programmers will be annoyed to find out that Godot uses its own programming language GDScript, but be at ease it is not that weird, arrays start at 0.

There is C# integration, which may be a little buggy. Some developers use the GDNative bindings to write their game in different programming language, for example Godot games in Rust

Assets and material can be bought for a few coins or some are even free. For example check out this awesome sprite pack Kings and Pigs, with this and Godot you can build a game in just a week.

Other assets stores: gamedevmarket, itch.io, kenney, indiegamemusic, Unity assets store, Sound effects on Sonniss


I will try to make the first prototype game that focuses around a slow paced 2D space battle. A brain child I keep carrying around for some time.
