Pixel Press are a very clever bunch based in St. Louis, Missouri who've developed a new technology that lets you design your own video games by drawing on paper, then scanning and playing them with your iPad or iPhone.
Trust me, we've played with LOADS of apps, websites and software packages that claim to be able to introduce young kids to the creative delights of game design but none of them are as simple and downright fun as this. The studio has released an app called Pixel Press Floors which lets you design your own levels and choose artwork themes for a platform style game. The company has plans to launch new apps catering to different game types (racing, quest etc) in the future.
If you have kids, or even if you don't, and ever wanted to design your own game but never got around to learning how to code, you should check this out right away!
