Zipeg 2.9.41316
Open just about any archive file

Zipeg is a fast and easy-to-use archive viewer with some unusual and interesting features.

The program opens a lengthy list of formats, for instance: ZIP, RAR, ARJ, LHA/LZH, 7z, TAR, GZ, TGZ, BZIP2, CPIO, RPM, ISO, CHM, Z, CBR, CBZ, WAR and EAR. It's based on the powerful 7Zip engine, so you can be sure of great performance, and there are versions available for both Windows and Mac OS X.

Any images in your archive will have tiny thumbnails attached. Hover the mouse over a particular file and you'll get a larger thumbnail along with EXIF data, perfect if you need to quickly locate a particular image.

If you regularly handle archives from overseas then you might appreciate the UTF-8, Unicode and codepage support that allows file names to be displayed in their national alphabets.

And there are plenty of small productivity-boosting ideas throughout the application. Zipeg will automatically open nested archives so you don't have to do it manually, for instance, and path completion makes it quick and easy to specify the destination folder when you're unpacking.

What Zipeg won't do is create archives, unfortunately. For that you'll need to use Windows own tools (right-click > Send To > Compressed Folder) or another archiving program.

Verdict:

Zipeg's inability to create archives is a limitation. If you just need an easier way to work with files you download or have already, though, its wide file format support, image thumbnails and other useful extras could make it a worthwhile choice

Unreal Engine 4.15.1

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
