Pixia
A quirky but feature-packed paint tool

Pixia is a powerful paint and drawing program.

There are a host of selection and paint tools, colour tweaks, layer support, masks, effects and more.

Click on "Colour Adjustment", for instance, and you don't just get some RGB sliders. Instead there's a full curve correction tool, with a choice of curve type (Bezier/ Spline/ Straight), number of points, and the value you're tweaking (Red, Green, Blue, RGB, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Hue, Saturation, more).

What you don't get, unfortunately, is any real documentation on how to use all this power. Apart from a brief README.txt which doesn't seem to have been updated for 3 years and two major version upgrades.

Still, the basics work as you'd expect - choose a colour, texture, brush size, click and drag on the canvas to draw - so as long as you're willing to experiment, there's plenty of fun to be had here.

Changelog

Verdict:

Pixia has plenty of drawing features and functionality here, but a shortage of help means it can take a long time to master.

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."
