Recently I’ve really expanded my Engine Tool useage, Unreal Engine 4 looks promising and allows the leveraging of my existing C++ skills.  Game Maker Studio is extremely simple and is great for 2d type games.  I’ve also picked up RPG Maker VX Ace, though I haven’t yet had time to mess with it, it appears to basically be a plug and play builder for JRPG style games, I intend to dig into it at some point and see if I can hack in a different combat system, otherwise It will likely be GMS that I write those types of games in.
