Does anyone here have experience with game making software? If so, I'd love to hear your advice. Is it better to start off with a free version to get your feet wet, so to speak, or is it better to just jump right in a get a paid version? Which brands are the best? Why are they the best? How do you get the best deals on stuff like this? Is there a preferred place to shop for game making software? I'm interested in potentially buying something like this as a gift for someone who has always dreamed of making video games. Are there special requirements or special skills needed to use it?
