3D Game Studio by Conitec
I own a copy of 3d game studio that I purchased and have used quite a bit. I really like the program. It is very similar to Reality Factory and FPS Creator but much more powerful. It is an game design suite that you have to purchase but I consider it worth the price. It has quite a bit more power than the others and it gives you a lot more flexibility in creativity. This software has been used to make some really nice professional games. Customer service is great and the company has been around for quite a while. You also get quite a few extras with the application and you have the option to buy some really nice additional themed model sets which really comes in handy if you have a particular theme in mind for your games.
They have quite a few nice options with the game including a free 30 day trial download and special licenses with no royalties and special rates for educational purposes. Check out the 3dGame studio website here.
I have plans to create a tutorial for this software so bookmark and check back. Or sign up for the newsletter so you can be notified.
Here is a nice look at a work in progress game using 3d Game studio. No textures yet but looks great and a lot of good work.
