Contained on this page are links to programming tools that we have used in the past, either regularly or for evaluation purposes.  This list is by no means complete or comprehensive.  Products listed as "The Game Creators" may or may not be actual products produced by them, but they host the products for sale or download and this is where I found them.  A lot of these tools are Free or very low cost.  Items that are in Bold are products that I own and/or use on a very regular basis.

World of Omen - " is a massive multiplayer online game developed in DarkBASIC.  Development of the game is recorded step-by-step and hour-by-hour in a series of tutorials that demonstrate Rapid Game Prototyping techniques."

RougeBasin - "A Roguelike is usually described as a free turn-based computer game with a strong focus on intricate gameplay and replayability, and an abstract world representation using ASCII-based display, as opposed to 3D graphics. Of course, as with any genre, there are deviations from the norm."
