#4988624 C developper, but newbie gamedev, where should I begin?

Posted by on 10 October 2012 - 12:40 AM

I used to work as a low level software engineer, and I have mostly written drivers in C language, and before that, I have done some development in Python, Ruby, and C++ (but I'd much rather use C now), but I want to move to indie game development now.
Last time I was writing a real game (ie not a pong or tetris tutorial clone) was with GFA basic on my Atari, so I don't really know much about topics specifics to game development (I'm a complete newbie when it comes to graphic, sound and interface programming).

I plan to make 2D turn based RPGs (like the old goldbox series for instance), but I don't know which libraries or engine to use, and which tutorials/book to read to get started.

What would you recommend me?
