When my twelve year old came to me looking for ways to make computer games, I applied my Google-fu and found this free (open source, open license) game development tool, based on the free (some sort of attribution license) Genesis3D modeling components. It runs on Windows XP, doesn't require C or C++ programming, and produces "Quake 2 dungeon crawl clone" games. A far cry from my 8-bit (and lower) youth, but initial impressions are good.
