Verity Child Monitoring 1.14
Find out what your kids are doing on their PC

Verity Child Monitoring is a parental controls package which will help you find out more about (and take charge of) what your kids are doing on their computer.

Getting started with the program can be a little complicated. On our test PC, for instance, we were asked to set up port forwarding on our router before we could configure the tool. Help was on offer, but this could still be a stumbling block if you're a PC novice.

Get past that hurdle, though, and you'll find the program has a lot to offer. Like restricting the programs they can run, and the websites they're able to visit, for instance. As an example, Verity Child Monitoring automatically blocks access to Task Manager to make it more difficult to close the program down.

The program can also log just about everything that's happening on the system: the programs used (and for how long), the websites visited, and the text of online chats. Keystrokes and mouse clicks are monitored, and Verity even captures the screen at regular intervals so you can review what's happened later.

And if you'd rather your children weren't spending so much time on the PC then you can also limit their computer usage (which, of course, also means you'll have less logs to review later).

Please note, the program will by default install the Ask browser toolbar. If you don't want this, look out for the "Related Programs and Extras" screen at the end of the setup process and clear the "Ask Internet Browser Toolbar" box before you click "Finish".

Verdict:

Verity Child Monitoring can be tricky to set up, but once it's working you'll find the program offers plenty of monitoring options, certainly more than you'd expect for a free tool.

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
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
