WebSite X5 Free 11.0
WebSite X5 is designed for novices – build your website using drag and drop.

Getting yourself a free web presence is pretty easy these days, with all manner of template-led tools available to get you started. WebSite X5 Free will appeal to those who have signed up for hosting, but who don’t want to be restrained by any web-building tools provided by their web host.

The free version is a fully functional cut-down version of a much more powerful package, and comes with some hefty limitations, the most notable of which is a maximum of 10 pages per site. If you can live with that restriction, you’ll be glad to learn you can create as many websites as you need, and they won’t be plagued with advertising either.

It’s simple to use: fire up the app, then click Start. Create a new project and work your way through the wizard, filling in the details and choosing a template (50 are available in the free version). Once tweaked, set up your site map, and then select a page to set up its layout (using a table-based approach) before dragging and dropping your choice of elements on to the page – the free version supports six types of object only: text, images, video/audio. social network buttons, map and Flash animations.

Once placed on the page, double-click an element to define and tweak it – either by adding and styling text, inserting and editing images and so on. Repeat for the rest of your site and then upload the finished version to your web space using the built-in engine.

It’s all very simple – the wizard-driven approach makes it a good choice for novices, but those with design skills may find WebSite X5’s table-like design too limiting.  There are a range of paid-for upgrades too, starting from €20 for the Home Edition, which raises the limit to 25 pages and 250 templates per site.

Verdict:

A simple way to build a reasonable looking website for free - perfect for novices, but more experienced users will find it too restrictive.

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

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."
