Games will be created with the Godot Engine
The designing of the mobile games that GDQuest’s Nathan Lovato will try to teach you for Purism’s upcoming Librem 5 Linux smartphone will use the popular Godot Engine, a free and open-source 2D and 3D game engine. One of the tutorials will also show you how to sideload your newly created game onto your Librem 5 phone and play it. A total of three video tutorials will be published in the coming weeks by Nathan Lovato.
