    Standalone web client for Scratch

    I would suggest using Scratch as not only is it made for kids but it's 100% free and easy to use. I would advise that you try it out for yourself and then decide as if he's using unity he might be above that level.

    LÖVE is an awesome 2D game framework for Lua.

    If all goes well with PICO-8, you can "upgrade" to love2d, which like PICO-8 uses Lua programming language, but allows for higher resolutions, and generally more polished outcome.

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.
