#ActualCuriosityKills

I'd second continuing with Python since it's a high-level language capable of making commercial games, you already have a head start, and it's the language of choice for many computer science classes if you want to eventually become a professional. Here's a good resource for learning game-making, Python, and PyGame. Posted Image

If you couldn't get Python, I certainly wouldn't go with C++. C# would be my next choice. It's also a high-level language with many options for making commercial games, such as Unity or XNA, although not so popular in computer science clases. Good luck to you in whatever you choose to do!

If you're between 8 and 16, another great option is Scratch. You won't make a commercial game with it, but you will complete a game quickly, and learn programming concepts to boot.
