The youngest video game designer.

My eleven year old daughter is showing interest in designing video games. What tools are out there for her to get her feet wet in placing elements on screen and creating interactions? Paid is fine as long as it's not exorbitant.

Other than the obvious Minecraft/Warcraft, I've fed her a steady diet of various indie hits and oddities from Steam (Limbo, Swords & Sworcery, Portal, Braid, World of Goo, etc.). So she has a definite feel for side-scrolling platformers but also has a strong bend towards conceiving characters, creating stories, quests and goals, etc.
Thanks much all! Hoping to nurture this in a positive fashion.
