Getting Started with Godot¶
The Godot Game Engine is a free and open source engine that handles both 2D and 3D game design. Most of the coding tutorials will be centered around Godot.
Godot works on Linux, MacOS, and Windows. It can be downloaded from the development site (https://godotengine.org) or from Steam.
Everything in this tutorial has been tested on Godot 3.2. It should work fairly seamlessly until Godot 4 is released.
Setting up the Environment¶
Being able to indent and unindent blocks of code is also crucial to programming, especially when moving around chunks of code. Most modern editors indent with Ctrl-] (Cmd-]) and unindent with Ctrl-[ (Cmd-[).
This can be set in Editor Settings (in the Editor Dropdown Menu) under the Shorcuts Tab. Search “Indent” to find the Indent Left and Indent Right shortcuts. Click on the pencil icon and then press your preferred key combination. Click OK with your mouse when you are done.
