A sampling of the free game development apps I know of:

Jolt3D! - is a 3D Game Engine, designed by the start to give the EASIEST possible access to DirectX.

G3D is a commercial-grade C++ 3D engine available as Open Source (BSD License). It is used in commercial games, research papers, military simulators, and university courses. G3D supports real-time rendering, off-line rendering like ray tracing, and general purpose computation on GPUs.

FireStorm is a step-by-step tutorial engine designed for people who don't know how to write a game engine from the ground up. (GPL)

MaPZone is an advanced texturing tool.

FlatRedBall is a 2.5D Game Engine using XNA and .NET technologies. Games using FRB utilize 2-dimensional assets within 3-dimensional space, creating a unique gaming environment that combines tradition with innovation. The FlatRedBall Development Kit (FRBDK) consists of a series of helper applications and core components to empower both seasoned and novice programmers to develop great games.

HGE is an easy to use yet powerful open source hardware accelerated 2D game engine.

I also have an extensive list of freeware and open source games - would they go here or in the gaming section? =)
