How are game engines created?

When using a PC, through which software would they design their gaming engines?

Good question which deserves at least one answer.

If you want to create your own gaming engine you usually program this in Visual C++ these days or any other high-level programming language, but for specific functions the use of low-level programming languages like assembly code (ASM) perform way better although these are less portable between different operating systems and architectures. You can in fact use any high or low level PL to create your own structured assembly code, complete applications that solely are written to create your specific distribution from start to the end.
