In Topic: Java or Python

I'm a bit confused after reading your title and thread. Why are you deciding between Python and Java again? Sounds like you are supposed to compare Java and C++ instead.


Also, what's better and better than 2D games?

In Topic: Python IDE

If you're planning on coding in different languages in the future I'd suggest learning an editor instead of an IDE. You'll kill 2 birds with one stone. VIM is cross-platform and Notepad++ is a good Windows editor. Both are free for personal use and I've used both to write code for Python, JavaScript, and PL/SQL.


Whatever you do, get good at using at least one editor. You'll use it a LOT in your development career.

In Topic: Opinion on Getting Started w/ A 2d RPG

Just one small clarification on Pygame. It's a framework that allows you to build stuff from the ground up. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of a typical game engine like Unity or RPG Maker which allows you to drag and drop items into a world. You'll have to render every little detail explicitly, or use an existing framework or engine that someone else developed using the Pygame library. It's a great way to learn how to create games from scratch but won't allow you to create things out of the box. Judging from the OP's post I figure he/she knows that already but just thought I'd add that for future reference.

Sounds like you want to be a story writer. Why not just start writing stories on your own? I'm not in the industry but I assume story writers for games have English language backgrounds (or Spanish in your case) and have a portfolio of short stories that game development teams can look at when hiring a writer.


For an example check out 'Kingdoms of Amalur.' The famous sci-fi writer, R. A. Salvatore, created the lore for the game. The story is amazing. The lore was one of the things that made it a great game.

Thanks for asking this question. I actually learned a lot from the links given.
