Hello everyone.

We are announcing the grand opening of the Godot Marketplace!

If you are a game developer or develop 3d applications, you may 
have heard of Godot. Godot is a game engine like Unity or Unreal 
- but it is open source.
So far it lacked a commercial Asset Store to provide a platform 
for complex or time consuming assets.

This changes today! Some of the revenue will be donated to the 
Godot project to support them and the development of the engine.
To celebrate the opening we are offering you 5 purchases from the 
vendor “VisCircle” for free!
Coupon Code: GDMPCELEBRATION (valid until 16th of March 2020)

I don't like that it's using the name "Godot" everywhere without being affiliated with it at all, even if it states on the homepage that it isn't affiliated if you read enough. Just because Godot is an open source project without a trademark on it doesn't really justify using it for anything like this imo. They are also just hoping for the good will of people to use the name fairly. There is also already an existing official godot asset library which promotes open source more too and has editor integration: https://godotengine.org/asset-library/asset The website is also completely broken without javascript, but at least it doesn't serve required third party origin scripts. It's also rehosting the Godot asset library, but doesn't allow downloads until you create an account on the website which is really dubious... As for the assets: I generally have the opinion that selling assets: - for intended usage in games as-is without modification, - for beginners not knowing anything, - reselling open stuff with little modification, etc. is really shitty for multiple reasons and should be banned from existing. For example there are assets like the 3D extruded FontAwesome icons which feel like a rip-off. I'm not really the target audience for such a website and wouldn't usually recommend purchasing assets like that from any sites but I would especially not recommend this site. When more people publish content on it it might become better but for now it doesn't look so good. It mentions 10% of revenue goes to Godot which is great, but I'm wondering how much more revenue goes to the store company?
