drag'n'drop gaming?

Hey Readers!

I'm speaking at a school career day next week to a bunch of 12/13 year olds about careers in gaming.

On the "what to do after you leave this presentation" side of things, I'd like to point them to some of these point'n'click, drag'n'drop gaming creation tools like RPG Maker, 3D Game Maker, etc.

Before I go try a bunch myself, has anyone else done so? Any you'd recommend that are really lightweight (i.e. no programming required, minimal artwork modification, etc. I'm really just looking to give these kids the bug, and frustrating them out of the gate isn't going to do it.

Try the Games Factory (http://www.clickteam.com/English/tgf.htm)
This is the follow on product to the old Maxis Klik and Play IDE. No programming required at all and gives a good view of logic, game loops, etc.
