I would say that since you haven't made an actual game yet, this project is definitely far too ambitious to achieve for a first game. It's a great idea, but trust me; I've been programming games for years, and still haven't even learned how to make my own engine from scratch. It takes a lot of knowledge, a lot of time and patience, and to implement scripting would be pretty hard as well (though not as hard as making an engine).

If you want to start a game project, I would recommend something a bit simpler than this. That's just my advice from personal experience. My first game I tried to make was super complicated and I ended up not wanting to program for a whole two years after I realized I couldn't do it. That being said, I would definitely return to this idea someday after you get some more experience under your belt! smile.png

EDIT: Also, you may have great luck with either GameMaker or Unity3D for making games. You can do just about anything you could with code inside of these prebuilt engines, and have a good game up and running quickly. It's a good way to learn about game development!
