That time I tried creating Godot from scratch in the year 2000... aka LibKSD and SAGElib!

 Looking back on an Open Source game engine I was attempting to build between the years 2000 and 2003, with the help of a few contributors.

I dug up the code for LibKSD and SAGElib from SourceForge, moved it to GitLab and actually managed to get some of it to run! In this video, I show some of the demos and talk through its plans and ideas.

This is pure nostalgia and may not be interesting to anyone but me :-)

If you reeeally want to see the code (but, please, no pressure - it's an embarrassing mess :-)) you can find the project pages on GitLab:​
