    Hey, So it’s day two and I have no music in my game… and I really don’t have any ideas on software to use.

    Does anyone have any ideas on what software I could easily use? Something so simple it requires little or no training?

    Thanks for any response

    Hey there guys,
    I pretty much liked the PoV’S post about software being free for Ludum Dare. However, what about software that is always free?

    I encourage everyone to add their favorites in the comments ;)

    Don’t forget to read the Rules and check out this page too!

    Graphics

    PhotoFiltre 6 – Take it as a worthy paint upgrade. This editing software got your basic tools plus some nice features if you don’t own a PhotoShop license or have no patience to go through GIMP.
    PhotoFiltre 7 – Adds layer support.
    GIMP – Saw that coming? Pretty much a free PS equivalent.
    Paint.NET -It’s Paint but .NET and that means better.
    Inkscape – Vector graphics editor.
    Blender – Ludum Dare isn’t all about 2D art so get this 3D editor to work.

    Sound

    as3sfxr – Generator for sound effects. Link to online version. sfxr is Ludum Dare old school stuff :D
    MilkyTracker – Solid tracker software to write your 8 bit inspired songs. Supports at least .wav export.
    GoatTracker 2 – Another good but hard to learn tracker software.
    SunVox – A modern tracker i’d say. Gives you pretty output for dirty input.
    Audacity – Your favorite free audio editing software.
    Linux MultiMedia Studio (LMMS) – Fruityloops alternative for your Linux. (by dertom)

    Level Editor

    DAME Editor – Though it’s intended for flash games you can use this 2D level editor for pretty much every programming language as long as you are able to use two for-loops.
    QuArK – QuArK is a map editor for games of the Quake Engine. You may ask why the hell Quake? Because most open source engines do support the map format of the Quake Engine or there is at least a plugin for it. It’s just famous and old school and awesome.

    Engines

    Irrlicht Engine – 3D engine running with C++.
    OGRE – Ogre 3D engine supports C++, Python, .NET and Java. It is so open source!
    Flixel – For the flash addicts.
    FlashPunk – For the flash addicts.
    jMonkeEngine 3.0 – Some Java 3D stuff.
    RPG JS – For those familiar with the RPG Maker this one is a HTML5 version.
    OpenGL – Choose your favorite language and go!
    Allegro – “Cross-platform, open source, game programming library” for C and C++ (by Folis)
    Simple DirectMedia Layer (SDL) – “Cross-platform multimedia library” written in C but can also be used with several other languages. (by Folis)
    SFML – Yet another multimedia library for those C++ geeks (by Folis)

    Code Editor

    Notepad++ – This text editor supports most programming languages and their syntax. Pretty good for a beginner that is confused by IDE’s.
    Eclipse – Java/C++ IDE.
    FlashDevelop – Flash/ActionScript IDE.
    Codeblocks – C++ IDE.
    MonoDevelop – C#, ASP.NET, etc. IDE.
    VisualStudio – You could also use free Microsoft software< if you got a Windows computer.
