Video Game Design Software
September 29, 2013 9:31 AM Subscribe
My son, who will be turning 12 this month just told me that he wants a video game design software program for his birthday. He is already adept at website coding and has Microsoft's Kodu game design software, but finds Kodu very limiting. He is better at Photoshop than most of my colleagues at work and is generally very computer literate. His favorite game to play is Minecraft, so I expect that this is an example of the type of game that he would like to be able to create.

This is a subject that I am unfamiliar with, so any input and suggestions will be appreciated. Generally, I am hopeful that there is something available for less than $150 ($200 max.) that will not be too hard for him to use, but will allow him to use his creativity to design his own games. Does such a program exist? We are not expecting PS3/Xbox 360 graphics, just something that will allow him to experiment with his interest in game design.
Thanks in advance!
