Game Jolt Client
Find, play and manage indie games

Game Jolt is a Steam-like service for indie games-- an easy way to find free or commercial games you like, then install, play and update them.

You can access Game Jolt from a browser, but Game Jolt Client enables using the service from a native desktop client. Okay, it's actually still a browser underneath (Chromium), but having a native client does mean it can integrate a little more with the operating system, and may be more convenient in some situations (you can restart your actual browser without closing a game).

If you know Game Jolt already there's not much to learn. Launch the program, log in and you can access your library or find new games as usual.

Game Jolt newbies will figure out the basics very quickly. Sign up with your email address to create an account, click "Games" and browse what's on offer. When we checked, the client listed "page 1 of 12,255 games", so there's plenty of choice.

Games either have "free" or their price displayed bottom-right. Click the thumbnail for any free game which looks interesting to read more about it, and click "Install" to download, install and play.

Other features include following games to get news, a "recommended games" area which suggests games you might like based on your current library, and even a chat client to message and get notifications from other Game Jolt members.

Verdict:

Game Jolt is a likeable service which gives easy access to thousands of indie games. You can access it easily from your browser, but opting for the client gives you offline playing and better integration with your OS.

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."
