What they used at Game Jam in Brazil are Python + PyGame and C/SDL
(and one team used Flash).
Because the short time and the lack of experience with XO from the
teams, they made simple games, not so complex, but are intended to be.
They had 29 hours in theory, many of them slept during this, and
projects were playable, but they want to extend them. I think
extending a game to be more complex can be a good choice to use C/SDL
or PyGame instead eToys.

The most simple project which we had was a Pong game, but there were a
game like The Incredible Machine (which was or pretend to use a
physics engine which I forgot what is now), a RPG game, another full
of mini games, two math games very interesting and a recycling game.
Most of them were playable, but as I said, pretend to extend (you can
play them on <http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Game_Jam_Brazil>).
