Install Godot on Raspberry Pi
Open Source Game Engine that runs fine on the Raspberry Pi (for 2d games).
For the export instructions for Raspberry Pi, go to the website.
This software will only run on the Raspberry Pi 4/Raspberry Pi 400.
GLES2 projects are recommended.
To run from GUI: Menu -> Programming -> Godot

Fortunately, Godot is very easy to install on your Raspberry Pi in just two steps.
- Install Pi-Apps - the best app installer for Raspberry Pi.
- Use Pi-Apps to install Godot.
For the best chance of this working, we recommend using the latest version of Raspberry Pi OS, which is currently version Bookworm.
Raspberry Pi OS has 32-bit and 64-bit variants, both of which will run on most Raspberry Pi computers, including the Pi 3, Pi 4, and Pi5.
Godot will run on either PiOS 32-bit or 64-bit.
Pi-Apps is a free tool that makes it incredibly easy to install the most useful programs on your Raspberry Pi with just a few clicks.
Open a terminal and run this command to install Pi-Apps:
wget -qO- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Botspot/pi-apps/master/install | bash
Feel free to check out the Pi-Apps source code here: https://github.com/Botspot/pi-apps
Now that you have Pi-Apps installed, it is time to install Godot.
First launch Pi-Apps from your start menu:
Then click on the Games category.
Now scroll down to find Godot in the list.
Just click Install and Pi-Apps will install Godot for you!
