Kodu Game Lab

Kodu Game Lab is Microsoft’s attempt at getting children interested in creating games. Simply, It is a WYSIWYG program that allows pathfinding, movement, terrain creation, and much more. I was introduced to this program and was interested in how it could keep my daughter interested. My daughter is still learning letters, but she loves gaming, she knows the difference between game playing and game creation (at least i thing so, since the only time she points at the screen and says “Daddy’s Game” is when im in Unity tweaking Sidefect.), and with that in mind, maybe she’ll want to make games like Daddy one day.

This seems like a good start…
