Job opportunities with Godot

With the opportunity to work with this Engine, almost in Vietnam there are very few and can be counted on the fingers, but in foreign countries they have been using this Godot Engine to develop 2D game genres. And of course, in the next few years, the Vietnamese game market will start using Godot for game production, so if you want to bet your future, you should program games with Godot.

Compare Godot with Unity

Unity is definitely going to be on top, but in return Godot Engine can do many things that Unity can’t do.

+ The first is the time to make a game, I have used these 2 Engines and the result is that the same newbie uses these 2 Engines, the game design with Godot will be faster than Unity when it uses these tools. Similar syntax to Python, functions like Camera, etc. are available to make games.

+ But in return for the first point, although doing it fast, Godot’s performance will be weaker than Unity, but it still depends on the type of game you make, if the game is 2D, Godot is still slightly better than Unity, but if it is 3D, Godot completely lost.

So should I use Godot Engine?

My answer is YES, it is very suitable for indie game developers or game production studios who want a fast product, then Godot Engine is an appropriate choice. Although there are still few tutorials, Godot is still very easy to use. Currently, AnonyViet has a series of more than 100 Godot lessons that can help you create a basic game on your computer.
