This is (or was) essentially a community of "Clickteam Fusion 2.5" ( ) users, so that's likely to be what most people here would recommend. Its main selling point is that it allows users to create games without the need to learn a traditional programming language. It's actually quite a powerful tool for making 2D games, and exports to Android, iOS, HTML5, etc (if you pay extra). On the other hand, if you want to make a 3D game, you should look elsewhere.
"Construct" ( ) is another very similar tool.

The most popular game engine among indie game developers is undoubtedly "Unity" ( ). It's extremely powerful, with a sophisticated 3D (and 2D) engine, has a very large userbase and many learning resources, and exports to many platforms. The downside is that it requires knowledge of a programming language, and even then, the learning curve is very, very steep.

I've recently started using BabylonJS ( ), which is a 3D engine based on HTML5 and Javascript, and so far I would recommend it to others. Javascript is the easiest language to learn, and BabylonJS itself is also simple and well documented. The nice thing about HTML5 is that you can create your game, and then easily export it to many other platforms.
