Going on right now are two great deals on some game making software.
One of them is going on over at Humble Bundle on their weekly bundle. It include Game Maker as well as some games made with it as well as source codes for some of the games. You can pick up all three tiers for just $12.
The other bundle you pick up right now is at Bundle Stars. It includes RPG Maker VX Ace and Game Guru for $8.49. Both RPG Maker VX and Game Guru also comes with some DLC to help you further enhance your game that you are making.
Now will you be making a AAA title with these software bundles? No, not really but you can still make some pretty sweet games with a little learning and patience. If you have ever been interested in getting into some indie game development now would be a good time to grab these bundles and get started cheaper.
