Anyone experienced with Visual Basic or Microsoft’s .NET Framework will feel more at home programming with the free game development software called Phrogram. Combining a professional interface with a fun focus on developing games, Phrogram is a good way to ease into traditional programming. In fact, many schools like Ohio State University use it to teach introductory programming classes.
For someone with no programming experience, Phrogram gently introduces a real programming environment while keeping things simple and providing many examples. The official website has many tutorials, examples, and games available to download.
Phrogram isn’t free but it does offer a 30-day trial.
