Greetings Gamedev community, I am a designer by profession and will not pretend to know alot (or almost anything) about programming. I do know some HTML but I assume that it wont be useful for creating games. For the past few years I've thought about creating a simple 2D point and click adventure game. By simple I mean: there is a character, I click on the screen, he goes to where I click, he interacts with a object, has to pick another object up, take it to point X etc (like good old Monkey Island, Sam and Max etc). Are there any easy to use freeware or commercial gaming engines out there that would allow me to create such a game without prior programming knowledge? Suggestions for which software to use are highly welcome. If possible please mention what are the pros and cons of the software you are suggesting. I am quite confident that there is such a software out there. Seeing that the past 10 years have made software/graphics development easier in many ways. Thank you to all of you and enjoy the holidays :)

I've heard that MMF2 is good if you want to make a game without programming.
There's also Game Maker, but that puts up annoying ads when you start the game.

I will check both of them out for sure.

As said the engine can also be commercial, I dont mind supporting the software developers if its good.

If you don't want to learn programming then you should look up Adventure Game Studio. It doesn't require much more than script editing.
