FlatRedBall 2.5D is also a good choice.


Nova Shell, I haven't tested it but it works with Lua(easy to understand), is free, and has script editing support.

EDIT: Here's the link:
Novashell Game Creation

Here's another:
neabEngine

your list is missing gamebryo and unity, two excellent engines for game development

e: oh wait, I see you have unity in the misc section! it might be useful to point out that the languages it uses for scripting are c#, its own terrible language, and javascript. I think unity uses a slightly different version of js? I'm not sure, though! I've only ever used c# with it

Thanks for this .

This is wrong however,
Quote:
its own terrible language
Unity uses C#, Boo, and Javascript aka Unityscript. Boo is not unity's it is similar to Python and Unity only supports using Boo. The support is not good. I use Unity C# and/or Javascript(UnityScript). I will continue to use Unity to create my projects its a great engine for all platforms and all sort of projects.

Also you got the Unreal Engine but I dont see the UDK(Unreal Development Kit).

Also as much as i hate torque i also done see TGEA, Torque Game Engine Advanced. Last time I checked it was stull supported by them

A solid and easy engine to use is called Stencyl. I've used it before, there is a community and tons of support. It is simple to get used to and allows you to do a lot. It is used to make iOS, Android*, Flash, HTML5*, Windows and Mac apps and games. I would recommend it to beginners. You can make anything from a platformer to a galaga style game to an rpg.

OpenTK isn't really a "Gaming kit" as it's more of an OpenGL wrapper to Managed Languages, but I'll still add them all
