WP Express
Install WordPress on your desktop

WP Express is a free tool which installs WordPress on a local PC or Mac, ideal for building your own web development environment.

The program requires a web server with PHP support and a database manager, but this doesn't have to be as complicated as it sounds. Installing MAMP gets you all of this and more with the absolute minimum of hassle, and the WP Express site has instructions on how to get the program working with a MAMP setup.

We installed WordPress to C:\MAMP\HTDOCS\WP on our test system, and used http://localhost/wp/wp-admin to log in with the database credentials we'd just created.

The WordPress console appeared as usual, and we could create new posts, add media, change themes and more.

A $9 WP Express Pro build offers more control over themes and plugins, enables saving of default settings and WordPress details, and more.

Verdict:

A handy addition to any web development toolkit.

Unreal Engine 4.15.1

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."
