Child authored IF - an IFDB Poll

It's incredibly unlikely to find a game created by a child (12 years or under) that's actually well made, but they can still be enjoyable. It's fun to see a young ones imagination run wild, limited only by their... likely poor coding skills.

Sometimes the games are crass and juvenile, sometimes they're sweet and innocent, sometimes they're just ridiculously silly and imaginative. And even if the game is really quite terrible, I still think it's quite wonderful that there are kids out there making games, expressing themselves, and who may end up making much more impressive work when they're older.

Plus they remind me of all the silly things I made when I was younger. I wish I still had some of it so I could burden the rest of humanity with it.

Games made with the help of an adult are acceptable, too.
