It's always said that children have the best imaginations, and so the BBC has decided to harness that power with Make It Technobabble, which is a web-based game creation tool that 'requires no skills'.
It's a "starter kit," saidMartin Wilson. Naturally we'll get games with day one launch problems, texture pop-in, ridiculous frame rate caps and no FOV slider.
That's if these young bright-eyed game makers want an actual career in the industry these days. The creation tool lets anyone create simple platform games, and even something with racing and some action. All the assets are available and require no art skills or programming to overcome.
"It requires no technical knowledge, no download and works just as well on mobile and tablets as desktop," explained Wilson. "The only requirements are access to the web, a willingness to experiment and an idea. In minutes a child can create a game."
“Young children were producing games even the developers hadn’t considered. It’s wonderful to see how children were willing to have a go, try again if it didn’t work, share their creations with friends and collaborate to make better games.” The game tool is aimed at 7-14 year-olds.
