I bought your Top 7 Godot recipe and it was great. Im confused though about the Essential Godot bundle, If you buy the bundle is it means you get all future recipe?  or just the 2 first recipes ?

Hey there! Thanks a lot for your support 🐷💜

Buying one of the Godot Essentials Recipes ebooks gives you free access to the BUNDLE.

The Bundle, which will be a single ebook, will be a standalone product. So buying one ebook will give you access to it once I publish it.

Each ebook until then is a standalone product as well. This way, people can buy just the one that actually interests them for a lower price, as the bundle will be a bit expensive.

Nonetheless, you get a 25% permanent discount on all future releases of the Godot Essential Recipes until the Bundle comes out.

So, you sir(or miss) can access this very Platformer Essentials ebook with 25% permanent discount. Reach me out on Discord or Twitter so I can give you the coupon link 🎉
