A Game That Teaches Kids To Make Games?

While crawling around the web today I found an interesting web app that allows kids (ages 8 -14) to create and share their own games.  What really makes this interesting is the fact that they play a game to unlock music and sprites.  The game itself is intended to teach the basics of game making while being played.  Gamestar Mechanic by E-Line Media is coined an “Online Learning Program” that can turn players into designers.  Of course there is a free version with a premium paid version that adds more features and allows further progression within the main “game” to unlock even more resources for use.

Sounds interesting to you?  Check it out here: http://gamestarmechanic.com/
