I've began learning Python and the reason I got into programming was because I wanted to create my own RPG, both text-based to 2D, and maybe in the future, many years down the future, a 3D game for the shelves.
For now, I've just been experimenting with text-based mini scripts that any begginer on Python could do.
I'm downloading both the Blender Game Engine and PyGames in an effort to begin on a simple game design.
My idea was to do somewhat of a recreation of the first version of Runescape (called Devious MUD) which looked something like this:
That in mind, I'm not trying to be overconfident or cocky in my VERY limited begginer knowledge in Python and programming in general (I have a little bit of knowledge in Java).
BUT....let's say that I were to begin on a small-scale project that takes on elements from Runescape (a medieval game set in Gielinor based on fighting monsters, training skills, and trading with other players), where would you recommend/what program would you recommend that I start out on?
Here are my current intentions for the game:
Single-player, no servers or multiplayer.
Basic combat system
A set of skills
2D Graphics and sounds
Click and point move system
All of that being said, could anyone offer me advice or tips on where to begin?
P.S: Don't send me to a Unity 3D Game Engine or anything like that. I'm not ready for anything of that scale.
