Gamechuck's FOSS pipeline: Asset importer tool for Godot engine

Here at Gamechuck, we are big supporters of the FOSS (Free and Open Source software) way of development. In short, this means that we think that any software should be available for free and has to include access to the source code.

We speak from our own experiences when we say that any pretense of protection of IP is, in most cases, actually a foil for hiding a big steaming big mess of incomprehensible spaghetti code. A ‘keeping up appearances’ of some sort that only does harm in the long run. That’s why we are actively sponsoring several FOSS projects such as Krita, Godot, and Ink.
