Do any of you know of any way to make games for free?

Yes, learn C++ or a free version of BASIC and get a freeware compiler.

A great open-source freeware utility is Bloodshed Dev-C++. Learning C is a lot easier with an IDE.

There are a lot of shareware/commercial programs out there, like Game Maker and such, but unless you want to create a very specific type of game (Adventure Game Studio is great for Sierra/Lucasarts-style games, but not much else) then don't bother with those. It's far better to learn a language, so you can then program almost ANY kind of game, and it'll be higher quality than anything the pre-made game software can produce. It's like the difference between frozen dinners and home-cooked meals.

Frozen dinners are pretty good sometimes, though.

I agree. And some really good games have come out of the pre-made game editors: Tierra Games has remade King's Quest I and Quest For Glory II in the new point-and-click format of KQ5. They're excellent. And free.

<off topic> Whatever happened to good old adventure games, anyway? </off topic>

I'm glad I didn't see this a few weeks ago or I would have taken the shortcut. I'm focusing in DirectX game programming so I can move into real 3d and shading.
