I would like to try making a game (eventually). First game wouldnt be all that visually appealing, in fact, I dont care if I have any images or graphics at all. I know text based games are dying out, but Id still like to have a go at it haha. When i say text based, I also dont mean like, where you type in stuff and it happens, like walk left, pick up, open, etc. Rather, more like tribalwars, travian, etc. Even those are a little graphic heavy for my first time, but maybe some day. Anyways, I hope you know what I mean as far as what type of game, basically a point and click type (in ten years of playing those games I never figured out the name for them).
Anyways, I want to practice coding (Obviously not up to par on what would be needed for a whole game) but I really dont know what to practice, so kind of just want to jump right in and try something relatively simple and learn as I go.
Before you all go on about how Ill never get anything done without knowing much about coding and programming, thats not really the question I have here.
What I really want to know are some other fundamental questions here.
For instance, if Im going to be practicing as I go, messing around and seeing what works, Id like to be able to try it. How do I do that? would I need to pay for a website, and is it a specific type of website one needs to run a game on?
The programming is easy enough to learn online over time, but some of these other questions Ive been having a difficult time finding online - seems its one of those things you just know before you try jumping into it haha
