Hi there;
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.

In this I just collect all licenses that allow you you to freely use, modify and even sell stuff, however you may still be required to give credit to the original creator.

Inno Setup is one of the simplest scriptable installers out there. Maybe it’s not as expanded in its possibilities as some other installers, but how often do you actually need that?

I prefer to use it for all my Windows releases.
