So, you've been postponing starting your very own first game, haven't you? That's highly understandable, that is, but here's another chance to get things rolling: kooltool by Mark Wonnacott. It's a very simple, very freeware tool that has been designed with accessibility in mind and should thus be perfect for beginners.
Obviously, the tool will not allow you to design the 3D RPG you've been dreaming of, but it will ease you into the creation of simple games or, at the very least, will do so when its complete version is launched. For now it only offers limited options and is essentially a very well designed level editor that will grow to incorporate scripting, dialogue and audio.
kooltool will happily run on your Windows, Mac or Linux machine.
