This is a collection of various ‘gamemakers’, tools to create games without writing a single line of code or minimal code. This programs are for windows, here the details:
GameMaker 7.0 (create 2d games)
This is a great tool, the shareware edition is very generous.
At some point will be available for Mac too. (beta currently)
NovaShell (focus on Adventure, RPG)
This is a game creation system, more focused on creation on adventure and RPG (role playing games). Novashell is available for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.
WME – winter Mute Engine (Create Adventure)
Wintermute Engine Development Kit is a set of tools for creating and running graphical “point and click” adventure games, both traditional 2D ones and modern 2.5D games (3D characters on 2D backgrounds).
AGS – Adventure Game Studio (Create Adventure)
Adventure Game Studio allows you to create your own point-and-click adventure games, similar to the early 90′s Sierra and Lucasarts adventures. It consists of an easy-to-use editor to create your games, and a run-time engine to play them.
Contruct (create 2d games)
Construct is a free open-source game creator for DirectX 9-based games. It includes an event based system for defining how the game will behave, in a visual, human-readable way – without programming! It’s intuitive for beginners, yet powerful for advanced users. Optionally, expert users can also use Python scripting to add code to your creations.
I left out a lot of tools (i am sure of) like mmo makers, 3d engine, compilers, sdk and so on.. you can
