Hello JGO, I am here to tell you about, in my opinion, of the must-have software for game creation of any sort. I will provide links to the software beside the titles.
The bare basics for code editing. Not recommended for serious programmers.
What I and a lot of developers like me use.
Like Eclipse, but developed by Oracle.
If you don’t like either Eclipse or Netbeans, you could try this, in some ways superior, IDE
Pro Motion (http://www.cosmigo.com/promotion/index.php):
I am sorry, but I have never used this software, though I’ve heard it’s worth trying out!
Well, I hope you have enjoyed this list of software, and if you have any questions or feedback, personal message me.
Have a nice day.
