Atmosphere Lite 7.0
Bring the relaxing sounds of nature to your PC

Atmosphere Lite is an interesting tool for generating nature-based ambient sounds. In a click or two the program can take you to a forest stream, a woodland campfire, the ocean's edge and more, complete with any associated sounds: waves, wind, rain, birdsong and more.

The program isn't just replaying a single audio file. It works by using multiple sounds samples, blending them together, and launching them at random times and frequencies. The end result is that even something relatively simple - the "Night Stream" scenario, say, is mostly just gurgling water and a few owl noises - can play in the background for a very long time, without you getting bored or noticing any repetition.

If you don't find the built-in sound scenarios interesting, though, they can be reconfigured in various ways. New background sounds (rain, wind, stream, ocean) may be added with a click, there are plenty of random sounds to include (thunder, birds, even insects), and you can play around with volume - making background sounds a little quieter, say - to help produce the effect you need.

The end result is surprisingly effective, and can be genuinely relaxing. To help a little more, Atmosphere Lite is able to display a full-screen slideshow while you listen. And if you don't want to risk drifting off to sleep - or at least, not for long - there's an option to set an alarm.

As you'll probably guess from its name, Atmosphere Lite is the free version of a commercial program, and upgrading to the PLUS or DELUXE editions will get you many more sounds, scenarios and slideshows. These each support more variations - there's "dynamic weather" and "evolving soundscapes" - and you also have more options for fine-tuning the results, including the ability to tweak the volume of individual sounds. Prices start at $22.95 and you can find out more at the developer's site.

Verdict:

A clever tool which makes it easy to generate surprisingly realistic ambient soundscapes.

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."
