Has anyone started tweeting Defold as alternative to Unity on Twitter? Perhaps the community could participate in a tweet flashmob? #unityalternative #unityrefugee
From what I saw on other forums and Youtube comments, alot of people are ditching Unity amidst this pay-per-install controversy. People are searching for open-source alternative and there are alot of relatively unknown engines mentioned, however, in none of those comments I saw someone mentioning Defold. Mostly, only Godot as direct Defold competitor is mentioned.
This is great time for developers learning about and switching to Defold with a little viral marketing.
Yes, we are quite active on Twitter right now:
Godot is probably getting more mentions, but I am also seeing Defold:
- Kenney advocates for non-Unity engines such as Defold: https://twitter.com/KenneyNL/status/1702238644671512666
- Casey Muratori: Game Development Post-Unity - by Casey Muratori
- EGDF: EGDF: UNITY’S INSTALL FEES ARE A SIGN OF LOOMING GAME ENGINE MARKET FAILURE – EGDF – European Games Developer Federation
And there are even more examples.
Defold team is doing a great job on twitter. Answering questions and promoting the engine.
Anyone who can make collages/clips of your own games or prototypes to share it. It would help a lot!
