Hello everyone, I just found this site out and I'm happy 'cause I was searching for something to help me to start programming games.
I have a solid knowledge in Java (obtained in University).
My main goal for now is to create a basic 2D RPG game with a more basic character development system, not because I just want to do it (so don't tell me to use RPG Maker ) but because I want to LEARN how games are made and I want to achieve experience in this field using a genre of game that I know well.
So, where to start? I heard C++ is a good language and I really don't want to use Java, what do you suggest? Any particular environment, library, starting point..?
Thank you for your answers and sorry for my bad english, it's not my native language.
