    I guess you could run Unity but loading assets, models with an Intel builtin gpu on a laptop will take time.

    I'd have thought Game Maker Studio 1.4 would run without issues, I used it on a similar spec/age system. There are also super lightweight engines for simpler games (like Twine for hyperlink games). It really does depend on what you want to make though.
