    I'm looking for a free game enige that allows me to create closed source games for Mac OS X. Does anyone knows a good one?

    Thanks a lot! Is it possible to develop 2D games with this?

    If you look at the (hundreds of) games in this topic, I'd guess that about half are 2D. That's for Unity iPhone, but it's basically the same as Unity. Except for the "free" part.

    I tried Unity but I didn't like it. I wanna make a 2D adventure game. Any other suggestion please?

    Unity is probably your best idea seriously follow this tutorial.

    Just give it a little while to get used to using it, at first it can be scary with all the information that it gives you but to be honest you'll end up using only 10% of the tools and information likely.

    I was going to recommend SDL, but it was because I didn't know unity :)

    Unity looks great, it claims to be free, but does it have any trick? Or it's totally free?

    Totally free, you even get a trial to the pro version. And unless you know a bit about programming then its a great way to start programming instead of jumping into SDL.
