Godot is an open source MIT licensed game engine. It has a visual-oriented workflow that can export to PC, mobile and Web platforms. It contains an editor and tools developed by OKAM Studio. Godot had a different approach to making games, combined with the other features, allowing single developers and teams to be more efficient.
Godot has been in development and used in-house by OKAM as early as 2001. In February of 2014 the source code for Godot was released to the public on GitHub under the MIT License. On 15 December 2014 Godot reached 1.0, first Stable release. 
Godot support a wide range of features and tools that can help developers Collaborate, create and develop guis, 2d and 3d games, features like:
The graphics engine uses OpenGL ES 2 for all supported platforms, and an upgrade to OpenGL ES 3.0 is in the roadmap. The engine supports transparency, normal mapping, specularity, dynamic shadows using shadow maps and full-screen post-processing effects like FXAA, bloom, DOF, HDR, gamma correction and fog.
Godot supports 2D out of the box with its own tab in the editor. It includes UI, sprites, animation, physics, particles and more. It's also possible to mix 2D with 3D or 3D with 2D using viewport node.
Godot supports deployment to multiple platforms. Within a project, developers have control over delivery to mobiles, web, desktops, and consoles. Godot also allows specification of texture compression and resolution settings for each platform the game supports.
There is an upcoming support for Windows Phone 8.
Godot has a sophisticated animation system with full support for editing, skeletal animation, blending, animation trees, morphing, realtime cutscenes, calling functions and animating just any property exported by any node.
