Solo Artist Creates Impressive 3D Animations with Godot Engine
Lam Nguyen, a talented solo artist, has been impressing the game dev community with their 3D animations, created using the Godot Engine, an open-source game engine that has been gaining popularity recently.
While Godot has traditionally been known for its 2D capabilities, Lam Nguyen's work showcases the engine's potential in the realm of 3D graphics. In a recent Tweet, Lam Nguyen explained, "I started using Godot for its 2D features, but with the latest Unity news, I wanted to test 3D as well. Here is the beginnings of something."
What makes Lam Nguyen's 3D animations truly impressive is the effective utilization of features like volumetric fog within the Godot Engine. This creative use of Godot's capabilities challenges the perception that the engine is primarily suited for simpler graphics and highlights its potential for more complex 3D visuals.
As the game development community continues to explore alternative engines, Godot is emerging as a favorite choice among developers, offering a viable and cost-effective alternative in light of recent controversies surrounding Unity's pricing model. While many may still be unfamiliar with Godot, artists like Lam Nguyen are demonstrating its untapped potential.
