Need Help With Starting a Game (of my own! :D )
I've been thinking a while now about making a 2D game. I don't think i will be making it too graphically intense, but I do think I will require a lot of scripting/coding. You see, my problem is, I would probably call myself 'nearly code illiterate'. I know next to none in coding but would love to get into it. I actually remember emailing Dan about what Neo-Scavenger ran on. I don't know if I should use Flash/ActionScript. I have a Mac, which probably limits me a fair bit (yep, the school I'm at gave us Macs...). So, I was wondering - where exactly should I start? Considering i've never done something like this before, I think it will be something small - maybe not even a game. I hear Python is good, but Unity is a no (because it has limited 2D capabilities). I'm unsure if I will be learning anything in extensive detail in my Information Software and Technology class, I doubt I will, seeing as I have only been doing things like webpage design. I'm sorry that I'm writing so much, but I'm really excited that it is possible for me to get into this kind of thing. I hope you guys can come up with something, it seems me Googling hasn't really gone anywhere. Thanks in advance for any help. I would GREATLY appreciate anything.
Thanks once again,
