Programs

Adobe Flash CS3 - Newest version of Flash and the first to be published by Adobe. This is the ONLY program that Armor Games supports for games on the website, unless you have another way to create an .swf file.
Cost: $699 (30-Day Free Trial Available HERE)

Game Maker 7 - An extremely popular program that's used by many indy developers to create games. It's extremely easy to use, and is great for those of you starting out.
Cost: Free!

This topic is a work in progress and will be edited to include more programs at a later date. If you want to see a program added, or need help with game development, please leave me a comment of my userpage. Thank you.

I'm in a little of a giff... I am planning to ask for Flash pro cs4 for christmas but I'm 13.... I've already downloaded Gamemaker 7, I've made my first game with it (the game is obviously bad >.>) but I'm wondering, should I continue with gamemaker until I'm familiar with it or should I get going with flash? Advise would be much appreciated!

Here's a good one:

www.soundsnap.com

It's a database of community-made/submitted royalty-free sounds. And it's all legal, because these were sounds submitted by the users of the site.

C'mon! Grow this thread!

Just a warning to people downloading Flash:

You won't be able to make games right away. You need to learn a lot of code. Not like game maker. Its going to take a long time.
Just don't to expect to be be able to make games just because you downloaded Flash.
