Anybody know a decent game creator tool? (suitable for 12yr
« on: September 27, 2005, 07:18:44 am »
Don't want a full coding system (e.g. Dark Basic) but more drag and drop game creation.

I think somebody on here referred to one but I can't find the reference!
Any recommendations (with links if you can) are welcomed.
Ask me anything about Machines and I'll try to answer! I don't have the source code anymore. No idea what happened to it...

Sort of - I know there are programs you can buy which are game creator systems that don't really require much in the way of programming.

This is for a 12 year old, a son of a friend at work and should be very basic and really a first step introduction to games.
