Abstract
Digital media and software have been used in supporting learning. Activities based on games should place the emphasis on the phase of creating artifacts for the game world, not on just playing or consuming contents. This chapter briefly reviews a number of outstanding efforts on providing advanced systems for the creation of digital games or simulations by children or young users, and analyzes their characteristics in terms of technology and the creation degree offered in both authorship and play processes.
