Hello from The Mirror! One app to build & play: a next-gen game development platform and sandbox, all built on Godot. We're excited to be partnering with GodotForums.org!
Our our Open Alpha is now available on Itch - we'd love your feedback! Download here.
We share the mission of helping Godot succeed and want to see the engine and its community continue to grow. We strongly believe that open-source is the future of game development with Godot being the engine of choice.
Why the partnership? As well as supporting the community, our long term vision is to be the bidirectional platform for Godot. Whether you start in The Mirror and end in Godot, or start in Godot and end in The Mirror, we have you covered.
To start in Godot, The Mirror currently offers GLB imports, which will bring along valid nodes from Godot, e.g. lights. Check out this demonstration in Devlog #16 below.
This is just the start. We're planning a Godot plugin to help you build in The Mirror side-by-side with Godot to quickly create and update in-world assets: think of Godot as your full "toolbox" for building in The Mirror.
To start in The Mirror and end in Godot, we're rolling out features progressively. At GodotCon 2023, we announced static exports to Godot. Analogously, you can think of exporting to Godot as pulling out an electrical component with dangling wires. Since The MIrror gives you features like out-of-the-box networking, physics, authentication, databases, server deployments, and more, you'd need to build yourself outside of The Mirror. However, we want you to be able to own your data should you wish to move to standalone Godot.
Even more, we'll also add piecemeal functionality to the Godot plugin so you can enjoy individual functionality from The Mirror by itself in Godot.
We’re active on these forums and you can tag anything Mirror-related with a new “The Mirror” tag.
We’re always open to feedback, suggestions, improvements, and more: we’re a team of indie game developers just like you and hope you enjoy building in The Mirror.
We’re officially in Open Alpha as of yesterday: Download on Itch!
