My own game project, no visuals, just sound !

Hi there community ! I have this game project that I have been thinking about for a while now. But I am not a game developer, I am a sound designer. My idea, which is not my idea actually, because it has already been done before, is to create a video game totally based on sound. I guess that would be an audio game. But not really because I am thinking of adding some visuals in there, although extremely minimal.
The thing is, that I have no knowledge of game conception. But I have some ideas for the story and the gameplay. I don't want to go into details here and there are plenty of things I need to sort out first anyway. But here are a few questions: - Which game engine / software would be the more adequate to create this kind of project ? - Would a sound designer like me, who doesn't know a thing about programming, be able to create such a game alone (with a lot of tutorials) ? - Would someone out there be interested in helping me out ?
Just for the fun of it, here is a sound atmosphere of a space ship under attack that I created a while ago: http://soundcloud.com/ogmusik/space-ship-on-bridge-under-attack
Oh, for those who are not aware, I am giving away my "Guns & Explosions" sound effect album of over 340 high quality sounds, for a short time only. Anyone who has a cool video game project in progress that would require such sounds. Just pitch me with your project and if I like it, the album that is worth 30 dollars, is yours for free. And if you end up using the sound effects, I only ask that you credit me somewhere in your project. Check out the attached file for a preview !
