"It's actually fun!"
Version: Kodu 1.2.88
It may be an indie game, but regardless I have had a lot of fun with it. It's a game creator for kids, which is based on a visual cause-and-effect programming language. Basically, you say "when something happens, do this." For example, when the game loads, jump up and down. There is a wide selection of things characters in your game can do, such as Jump, Eat, Score Points, Play Sounds, Play Music, Glow, Talk, the list goes on and on. It was easy for me to create a simple game and export it to a file to share with my friends (the games are in .kodu format so they will also need Kodu Game Lab to view it). It is 100% free so I recommend you try it and if you don't like it, uninstall it - there's nothing to lose.
The Community requires you to sign up to Hotmail to use which might be confusing for it's target audience (small children). Also, similar to other creation games like Little Big Planet, you can only use a limited amount of resources before you can't add anymore (mostly due to graphics problems) but you have to add a LOT of characters for this to happens so it probably won't happen too often.
With Kodu, it's actually more fun creating the games than playing them! But that's fun too.
"Very interesting program, a lot of fun to play with."
Version: Kodu 1.1
Lots of different options and controls to make it do different things, still playing with it to learn more.
Can be difficult to figure some of the training exercises out, haven't done them all yet, and still very new to the program.
"This is the best game creating software for kids."
Version: Kodu 18.104.22.168 Technical Preview
I like it's game creating abilities.
