Gorilla (gorilla.sc) is an easy-to-use platform for both hosting and building online studies. It offers: a fully graphical experiment-builder; powerful scripting; tools for creating questionnaire and surveys; a large collection of examples; and great documentation, including video tutorials. Recently, Gorilla has also added option for building (simple) online games, including multiplayer components.
