Some children not only love to play games on the computer, they love to create them!

If you have a gifted child who's interested in making some computer games, visit the Game Maker website.

Game Maker is a program that can be used to create many types of computer games, such as maze games, scrolling shooters, platform games, puzzle games, and 3D games.

The best part of Game Maker is that one doesn't need to know much programming to create the games.  It's a wonderful way to learn the basics of game making -- like what makes a good game!

Even young children can learn to use this program or you and your child can build games together!   

If your child has a Playstation 2 (or will be getting one!), RPG Maker is a great game for kids (and adults) who want to create their own Role Playing Game (RPG).  While it is rated E for Everyone, it does require patience, but that's what all programming requires!
