This is a quick list of programs and other stuff that is very usable for game programming which is offered up free of charge and free of royalties.
If you know a tool or other thing that is handy for game programmers, please don't hesitate to add it to this list. Nothing it hosted here, we only link to stuff.
Please note that some programs may be marked as 'Strong Copyleft'. This means that the license of that tool or product may require you to make the game you create free or to copy the license of the product you chose. The GPL is the most famous example of that. So I really recommend to check the licenses before using the stuff I link to.
NIL Isn't Lua A programming language that makes Lua stricter and more punctual making it easier to write code without unexpainable NIL-value errors, just because you had to look for a needle in a haystack to find out what you misspelled. NIL also adds classes and switch statements to Lua. Please note NIL itself is written in Lua, so you do require Lua in order to use it, but then again, any Lua engine using Lua 5.1 or higher should be able to handle it.
