[At this point I'm honestly thinking of making godotes a bimonthly or monthly newsletter given how little time I have to prepare it 🤦🏽♂️. Meanwhile, here's a shortish issue before next week's Q1 report for 2022]
The 15 Godot Games on the Bundle for Ukraine
They are worth USD $79.6Bundle for Ukraine
I know it's extremely tacky to measure things like these, but damn it, I was curious!
I'm not gonna be making any charts because all of these games combined represent about 1.2% of the total bundle. (which, by the way, raised over six million dollars! holy fuck)
The games are listed in the same way they are on the bundle and, like always, it's composed only of tagged games. There are definitely more Godot games in there.
