    Some neat online tools for game developers

    Hi!

    I recently made a (still very short) list of useful/interesting/neat online tools people recommended via Twitter, Facebook and – of course – Ludum Dare. The tools are suited for game designers, programmers and artists – and most of them can help in 48h game jams. They are all free.

    The list is here. If you have any more/better recommendations, I’d be happy to add them. :)

      Good initiative!

      I would add Processing and Construct 2. Those are great tools to do prototyping.

      I think those are offline tools, and Construct 2 isn’t free. :-| But you’re right, it’s missing some prototyping tools …

      character name generators and other things @ http://www.seventhsanctum.com/index-name.php

      not really for gamedev, but there is this online drawing tool @ http://pixlr.com/editor/

      plus there are lots of random game name/theme generators.

      A VERY powerful dice-roll probabilities calculator, with multiple rolls, different graphs for outputs and data exporter.
