GDevelop is an open-source game creation software, allowing to make games for the web (HTML5), desktop or mobile phones (iOS/Android). No programming or coding skills are required! It is easy to use and powerful enough for advanced users.
What makes GDevelop unique and so easy to use are the events. Events are a powerful way to express the logic of your game, without having to learn a programming language.
Sprites, particles engine, physics engine, platformer engine, pathfinding and many others features are available. Any kind of 2D games can be created with GDevelop.
Games can be exported in one-click for Android, uploaded online or packaged for iOS, Windows, macOS or Linux.
Phaser is a fun, free and fast 2D game framework for making HTML5 games for desktop and mobile web browsers, supporting Canvas and WebGL rendering.
The games are based on the popular framework Phaser.
The RPG Maker software series is a set of game creation suites aimed at easy 2D role playing game creation. With an emphasis on JRPG gameplay mechanics, the suites typically include map, tile and sprite editors, character, encounter and dialog tools, among countless other elements to cover practically every facet of game building.
Cocos2d-x is an open-source and cross platform open source free game engine for mobile game development known for its speed, stability, and ease of use. Initially built for 2D games, the engine now features 3D tools for scene editing, lighting and more.

CopperCube is a 3D editor for creating interactive 3D applications or simple games for Flash / Stage 3D, WebGL or as application. No programming is necessary for this. Simply import your 3D models, specify camera controllers and behaviors, and hit 'publish'.
It is intended to be used for creating 3D educational programs, architectural visualizations, military simulations, product configurators, games, e-learning applications and 3D prototypes. And it can be used to convert 3D models to WebGL or Flash Stage 3D / Molehill.
This is the light edition of CopperCube, limited to 10 scenes per file, but otherwise, it is fully functional:
- It supports the import of 22 3D file formats such as 3D Max .3ds, AutoCAD .dxf, Maya .obj, COLLADA .dae, Lightwave .lwo, Truespace .cob and .scn, and many more: .ply, .stl, bps, lmts, .mesh, .x, .ase, .oct, .dmf
- Realtime 3D character animation, with an unlimited amount of joints
- Supports the features of the latest Flash Player 11 as well as older players
- Renders using OpenGL, Direct3D, WebGL or Stage 3D
- Simple, pre created Game AI behaviors included
- Various camera controllers included: for third person cameras, first person shooters, model viewers, panorama views
- Includes a global illumination lightmap renderer
- Supports 3D sound
