'''Unity''' is a popular, free game making tool. There's lots of support availible online, and you can do quite a bit without even having to bother with JavaScript or C# :) It's real easy to just plonk some primitives or free models in and be able to walk round and have things effected by physics :)

==Linux==
There is actually a GNU/Linux version of Unity available, but it can be a little hidden! They only officially support Ubuntu, but . You also have the option of using it in WINE (via Play On WINE is easier).
* [http://forum.unity3d.com/threads/unity-on-linux-release-notes-and-known-issues.350256/ Unity on Linux: Release Notes and Known Issues] - latest builds at the bottom of the thread.
* [https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/unity-editor/ unity-editor] and [https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/unity-editor-beta/ unity-editor-beta] in the Arch User Repository.
Note that when installing through the AUR I had to use a different temporary folder as it wasn't large enough:
<pre>yaourt -S unity-editor --tmp /home/USERNAME/tmp</pre>
(need to find how to do this with pacaur)
I also did it on a drive I shared with Windows once (FAT32) but then I had to set a bunch of permissions after it was installed which was a bit annoying! You need quite a bit of free space to do all the downloading and building, maybe ~10GB+

Unity is a popular, free game making tool. There's lots of support availible online, and you can do quite a bit without even having to bother with JavaScript or C# :) It's real easy to just plonk some primitives or free models in and be able to walk round and have things effected by physics :)
