    What are the best and easiest programs to use to create your own computer games?

    Are there any programs out there that are easy to use for creating your own video game either text based or with a simple graphical interface.

    The easiest that I could think is the use of adobe Flash software that will help you program simple flash games such as you see on www.y8.com. But for the best and easiest software for professional video game programming is unity3d.

    As I understand it, a lot of the Flash market is moving to HTML 5 for browser-based games.

    For full-on apps, the Unreal Development Kit (UDK) has the most power and best features, but has a fairly steep learning curve and somewhat limited import/export.

    Unity is almost as powerful, though it has fewer features (so more time spent developing your own), but it has better import/export and a more gradual learning curve.

    You can make professional quality games in either kit, but UDK (or rather, a licensed version of the editor that allows custom extensions) is used by AAA developers. Any game that is made with 'Unreal' technology is essentially using UDK, so that gives you some idea of its power and flexibility.

    All of these tools are free. A couple of years ago, free, powerful, professional game-creation software would have been unheard of. Now, anybody with the time and dedication can make a video game.
