Tool reviews and overviews

General overviews

I wrote a two-part overview of game making tools in January 2011. See part one and part two.

A very comprehensive list, but with shorter presentations, is at the Games in Education wiki. And here’s a newer, growing list of content generators. Speaking of content, it turns out there’s a list of voxel editors, including my own VoxelDesc. And TVTropes, of all places, has a rich catalog of game-making tools, with short descriptions. Some of them are very obscure, too.

Last but not least, there’s a collaborative database called the Game Creation Tools Classification.

HTML5

An article from March 2012 lists several HTML5 games, along with tutorials, libraries and game-making apps. It also points to this huge list of HTML5 game engines and frameworks. Another such list is at Game From Scratch. And speaking of that, here’s an article on How to Make A Simple HTML5 Game With Enchant.js.
