The domestic Kefir decided to support the open source Godot Engine. The developers have allocated a grant to its owners in the amount of $ 120 thousand.
The investment was reported by the authors of the engine. According to them, the money received will go to the development of Godot. In particular, they plan to hire additional specialists to their team and extend the contracts of existing ones.
Kefir has been cooperating with Godot for a long time. Although the studio makes its games on a different engine, developers use Godot to create internal prototypes. Kefir does not exclude that in the future it will become more active to use the capabilities of the engine.
Many thanks to Godot for the incredible contribution to game development. It is a great honor for us to provide a little help in this great cause. And we are always ready to support powerful, cool, unusual games and teams, regardless of their platform, tools and development stage.
Kefir Business Development Director
