Hello, i'm a lawyer from Brazil with an idea, and little knowledge.
I have a concept football manager game, fully concepted, i have a book with ideas i managed to put together for the game.
Problem n° 1), i will need to edit a massive amount of database, how can i make my life easier.
Problem n° 2), i dont know nothing about programming. I saw something about Ruby and Phyton, and to stay away from C++, it's the best, but could make me frustrated.
Problem n° 3) As a football manager game, i will need to use players and team names, but i can't. Corprights, so i will need even more creative power to make some "fake" names.
How can i do anything? Where do i start?
Good Thing nº 1) I don't know anything! So i could make anything.
Good Thing nº 2) I'm not interested in engine 3d, or making anything move alone. I can't (and for now i won't) do that. I want a Text-based manager game (Think OOTP) or if that was hard only a timer and passing if anything important happened (red, yellow cards, goals, penalties)
Phyton+PyGame will make what i want?
