    What is the best game editor/level editor/game designer/animation program
    available for Vista? Any suggestions? A freeware program would be nice!!
    Maybe Truespace? Art of Illusion? Platinum Arts Sandbox? Thank you in

    Heh, I use Source Engine (Free with any Valve software purchase), but
    you're kind of limited to FPS type stuff (Though lots of people have made
    amazing games that aren't FPSs in source).

    On my Mac I keep the iPhone SDK loaded up, obivously it's just for iPhone,
    but as some people have proven, you can make a fortune if you're lucky

    I used to use TruSpace back in the day, but I didn't think it was freeware.
    Maybe something changed recently?

    Thanks. Can I get Source Engine free anywhere, or do I have to purchase
    something from them?

    I don't own an iPhone or have a recent Mac.

    Truespace is now freeware!!!!!!!! Yup. I just found out not long ago,
    myself. And it's very cool.

    Art of Illusion and Platinum Arts Sandbox are both very cool, too.

    I'm not 100% sure about that, but you can install the Steam service for
    free, go to and install the client. Once installed go to
    the Tools section and see if you can just install Source SDK.

    If you can't, ask around the forums, see if anyone has a free Half-Life 2
    Game Code they might be willing to give you. (People who bought Half
    Life: Orange box last year got free copies of Half-Life 2 to give to
    their friends if they already owned the game, so lots of people have
    these codes.)

    Good luck

    Ok, I will. Thanks.

    Try Ogre, maybe. This is downloadable free with SDK and is apparently very
    close to Source. I just downloaded it, but I haven't tried it yet.

    I'm not 100% sure about that, but you can install the Steam service
    Another one you can search for is Torque Engine, it's an open source game
    engine that has been and always will be free. I think they even site
    several commercial games that have been released on the engine.
