👩🏫 About Chickensoft
Chickensoft is an open source organization dedicated to the C# Godot community. We host a Discord server dedicated to providing support for developers writing games, applications, and tools with Godot and C#.
All Chickensoft projects are free to use for personal and commercial projects under the MIT license. See our license page for more information.
📖 What's here?
Chickensoft is home to a number of open source projects. Since some of these projects are quite involved, their documentation is hosted here. You can see all of Chickensoft's projects on the home page.
In addition, we are striving to better document general C# and Godot development. Want to add notes about a particular topic? Feel free to contribute to the open source Chickensoft Website!
🐤 Why the name?
Chickensoft began as a silly personal organization for my game development projects. While making games with Godot, I ended up creating a few utilities along the way to make C# development a bit easier. Now that the projects have a life of their own, I've given up trying to ever release a game. If for some reason I do release a commercial game, it will be under a different name. 🥲
🪦 A Word of Caution
To all game developers I offer this word of caution: Don't make tools — make games. Otherwise, you will just end up writing documentation for tools that may (or may not) help others make games. At worst, you may fall into the dark pit that is writing an entire engine.
Unfortunately, "not making tools" and "actually making games" is a hard pill to swallow for game developers. Game development is notoriously hard, even without the temptation to write tools. When you finally do succeed in making a game, we'll be there to cheer you on in the community Discord server!
If you still won't listen, feel free to contribute. Just know you are treading down a dark path full of unfinished projects and broken dreams. 😶🌫️
