Our sweet 8 year old is entering into the world of developing. He has started the concept for his first game.

He hasn't decided what it is called but the basic concept is an alien has escaped Area 51. The gamer finds "Toxic" at the Diablo Canyon Power Plant, eating toxic sludge. Toxic contracts the Zombie Virus and begins to spread it into the human population. Your goal is to stop the spread of the virus and contain Toxic, ultimately either killing or curing him.

I know @snowtrooper1966 is going to be so proud. We hope we can count on our friends here to help him on his journey. I'm sure there are going to be plenty of questions we won't be able to answer.

Well, I have downloaded gamesalad, Inkscape, and X11 for Snowtrooper1966Jr to start working on his game. As I don't understand any of this type of thing I pulled up all the tutorials for him. He says they don't make sense. Is there anyone who can walk him through getting started?
