Independent charity The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has released a tool to help children create their own games without knowing any programming languages.
The tool, called Games Unpacked, was developed in the popular Unity engine by the University of Albertay Dundee in association with Electronic Arts and with support from UK organization The National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts (NESTA).
According to BAFTA, games can be created "by dragging and dropping level elements like platforms, power-ups and dangerous traps," with the intention of teaching interested children "about what it takes to become a computer games developer."
"Every young person I know absolutely loves playing games, and Games Unpacked is a fun and easy way to take the next step into making their own games," said Albertay's Paul Durrant in a statement.
Games Unpacked is available for kids (or the young at heart) for free here
