Recommended and mentioned products

  1. The multiplatform game creation tools for everyone.

    I can't open unity because my license is invalid. I can't... about about 16 hours ago

    Maybe logging into account at unity.com would work too.
  2. Feature-packed 2D and 3D open source game engine.

    Best engine for sim/management style game about 2 days ago

    The Godot Engine has a Python-like scripting language which will help the transition - but it is a bit less mature and I don't know how fully-featured its UI offering is.
  3. Defold lets you quickly build high performing, cross-platform games together with your team.

    Why don't more people build games for the browser? about 4 days ago:

    Game dev tools like https://defold.com/ make it nearly as easy as Flash to make high performance webgames. The only thing it's really missing is flash's vector/drawing/animation tools, though it does support extensions for Spine http://esotericsoftware.com/ and is getting one for Rive https://rive.app/ so you'll have nice vectors then too.
  4. GDevelop is an open-source game making software designed to be used by everyone.

    Not exactly a meta build, but still a ton of fun to use! about 3 days ago

    It's actually an open-source game engine called GDevelop 5: https://gdevelop-app.com/.
  5. A free and easy to use game creator for the GameBoy

  6. Construct is a HTML5 game creator designed for 2D games that allows you to build games without using coding.

  7. PlayCanvas is an open-source game engine built on WebGL and WebVR.

    An introduction to Three.js about 5 days ago:

    It’s worth noting Three.js is not the only JavaScript library to make WebGL easier. For example, Greensock, PlayCanvas and Pixi.js all offer the benefits of WebGL without actually writing WebGL. I think Three.js is a better choice for learning 3D however as the library has fewer distractions and is focused on one thing.
  8. Cocos2d-x is an open-source and cross platform open source free 2D game engine for mobile game development known for its speed, stability, and easy of use
