Your First Game Godot 2d Platformer

This is the complete Open Source Project for our upcoming free beginner Godot 2D Platformer course. It will show you how to create your first Godot game from start to finish.

Follow us on Twitter and YouTube for free game creation tutorials, tips, and news! Get one of our Godot game creation courses to support our work on Free Software.

The game you'll create

What you'll learn

  • Build a platform game with connected levels, pass through platforms, coins, enemies…
  • Design a title screen, pause menu, and score counter
  • Learn some good Godot programming practices to keep your projects organized


  • You will need some basic understanding of GDScript, which we cover in our introduction to GDScript. GDScript is the programming language you will use in Godot to code your games.

We also recommend reading the great step-by-step guide in the official Godot docs, if you haven't already.

How to get this free course

The course will come out on our YouTube channel at the end of September. To get it, subscribe to the GDQuest channel and click the notification bell to know when it is out.

We will also release a free introduction to steering behaviours soon, designed to be beginner-friendly as well!
