GameSave Manager
Select a game to see what settings and files GameSave Manager will back up.

When it comes to backing up, backup tools seem to have most bases covered: your documents, photos, email and even some program settings. But what about your saved games? You may have spend hours – days even – getting to a certain point in a game, only for your PC to crash and a Windows reinstall to ensue. End result: you have to start again from the beginning.

Scour a game’s support forums or FAQs and you’ll probably find out how to back up and restore that game’s settings, but why go through the hassle of wading through pages and pages of information looking for the key files and settings you need when GameSave Manager can do all the hard work for you?

GameSave Manager offers a simple, attractive alternative – it’s capable of backing up nearly 800 games thanks to its ever-growing database, which is built on community feedback. Updates can be applied from the Help menu. It’s incredibly easy to use: download the zip file, extract its contents and run the setup program, then launch the program (choose Run as Administrator if in Vista or Windows 7). GameSave Manager will automatically scan your hard drive for supported games. Just tick those you want to back up and you’re off.

You can back up to a selected backup device, or upload your settings to a custom FTP location or Dropbox folder for additional security. If your game isn’t featured, use the custom setting to manually add its details, and look out for a Sync and Link option that allows you to store your game settings in Dropbox, ensuring the latest version of your game saves are accessible from all your PCs. There’s also a Steam Spreader function for those who use a dedicated SSD partition for Steam games, but are running out of space.

Note: you may need to temporarily disable User Account Control in Vista and Windows 7 before attempting to restore certain game backups made using the program. You should also verify your backups after making them – this option is enabled by default.

Version 3.1.442 is a bug fix release.

Verdict:

Utterly essential backup tool for gaming enthusiasts – GameSave Manager is quick, easy and comprehensive.

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
