Using Godot game as overlay for desktop or videos???

I want to make a game that uses whatever is already on the display as an object in the game or as a background… maybe not an actual game, but something like this…

Any idea how to do it or if Godot is even capable? I’d love some suggestions or alternatives.

I’m not sure Godot is built to run in other applications. It’s more of a standalone game-building software, and it’s designed to run in it’s own window.

Godot’s render Engine isn’t thought to do this. If you, however, want to make an App / a Game that uses this concept make sure to get started with Xcode (Xcode 15 - Apple Developer) or AndroidStudio (Descarga Android Studio y App Tools - Android Developers  |  Android Studio). The Apple Developer / Android Deveveloper homepage will give more Information.

nice, thanks
