Unity is known for its high quality graphics including lighting, visual, shading, sound effects. While Godot is behind providing only basic graphic effects.

Kinematic bodies

Godot is really flexible, you have a kinematic body with a collision/overlap prevention API and a RigidBody with many modes, even a custom integrator for more precise manipulation of velocities. Unity uses rigidbody which is in full control of animation and script.


Godot is used for 2D animation while Unity is used for both 2D and 3D animation.

Visual scripting

Godot game engine comes with a uniquely written programming language called GDScript. A mixing of Python and Lua which makes it as readable as Python. Unity is more geared towards developers who can code, it also accommodates beginners who want to use virtual scripting with the assets in the asset store.

Team Collaboration

Unity offers a feature which allows team to collaborate with each other faster and efficiently named “Unity Teams”.

Built-in editor

The Unity editor allows adding custom menus that look and behave like the built-in menus. Godot allows to create custom editors.
