I am programming a pc game and I would like to make the game free however, I still would enjoy making a few $$$ off of it. One idea I thought was using awesomium and hosting web ads through my game... Any thoughts or comments on this?
I have been programming for awhile and have come across many different tools that made my life much easier.
One of my favorites though is Tiled which is useful for developing 2D maps. I have tried making my own level editors and even using jpgs to store all my level data haha. Another one I found really cool was Spine2D used for 2D skeleton animations.
I was wondering what other tools people have came across that they enjoy using. Whether they are for sound, graphics, animation, level editing and etc...
