Irrelevant[edit]

Until this engine gets a stable release, I don't see why it deserves a Wikipedia article. What's next, an article for every tool out there that was released as version 0.0.0.0.0.2 and then discontinued?

Article Created[edit]

Significant news coverage with many many reliable sources. BlitzGreg (talk) 08:24, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

Neutrality disputed[edit]

Statements such as "Godot has an advanced, independent, and complete 2D engine, so there's no need to fake 2D in 3D space." or "Godot contains a sophisticated and one of the best animation systems out there" make me doubt the neutrality of this article. Who believes it to be so advanced, or 'one of the best'? The developers? Why? Is the ability to avoid 'faking 2D in 3D space' a feature worth mentioning?

I rewrote parts of the article, trying to find references where possible (and removing some). I also removed "sales-talk"-sounding text and tried to phrase things more neutrally based on information in the Godot docs and tutorials. This should hopefully address the neutrality dispute.

As the creator of the article I do agree with the original complaint and found Starkiels revisions to be sufficient. After reading over the whole article and moving a few things around I no longer see anything overtly biased so I am removing the template. My only remaining concern is perhaps the list of features could be moved into a table right aligned to the text for space or removed all together. Wikipedia is, as always, not an encyclopedia, it should just give a general overview of the engine. Similar to the origin of the engine's name, Wikipedia doesn't need to list every single feature Godot is waiting for. BlitzGreg (talk) 08:20, 23 February 2016 (UTC)
