Pixel Prospector published a neat little list, that shows information about the best game engines available for game developers.

The main sheet includes a number of popular engines, including Unity, Unreal Engine, Torque 2D/3D. Construct 2, GameMaker: Studio, Stencyl, PlayCanvas and any other. The cool thing that the page also includes information about the required programming skills and the kind of games you can make with these tools. It’s nice to see that a lot of modern engines today do not require any programming skills.
