Rapid CSS
A powerful cascading style sheet editor

Rapid CSS 2014 is a powerful cascading style sheets editor that's packed with time-saving features.

The program gets you off to a speedy start with bundled templates helping create many CSS documents from scratch. There are also several HTML templates ("FAQ Page", "Feedback Form" and so on), various samples aimed at helping CSS beginners, and the option to add your own templates for WML, PHP, ASP and other documents.

If the templates don't provide what you need then there's always the Style Sheet Wizard. Choose your font, font size, various colours and other options, while a built-in preview window shows the results. Then click OK and Rapid CSS 2014 will generate the appropriate code for you.

You'll have to at least start more complex projects yourself, but still, there's plenty of assistance on offer here. Auto Complete pops up syntax reminders as you type, for example, helping you remember and write style property names. The CSS Inspector will add, remove and modify style properties for you. And the Code Library comes filled with frequently required code snippets, so you can quickly reuse them as necessary (and of course you can also add snippets of your own).

When the job seems to be done, the CSS Formatter and Beautifier can automatically reformat your code to make it easier to read. The CSS Checker and Validator will confirm that everything is correct (or tell you why it isn't), and you can then save files directly to an FTP, FTPS or SFTP server.

Sounds good? And it is, but there's plenty more you'll notice along the way. Like syntax highlighting for multiple document types (HTML, CSS, LESS, SASS, JavaScript, PHP, XML, ASP, Perl and more). An HTML Colour Picker, CSS Selector and Browser, built-in real-time code previewing, a CSS code compressor, multiple item clipboard, excellent CSS reference, and the list goes on.

Please note, the trial version can only be launched 30 times, so be sure to make the most of each run.

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
