Hi, I was hoping someone could steer me in the right direction here. I am interested in starting to program a game I had an idea for. It would mainly be text based. I am wondering where I should start with everything. I have no experience in this sort of thing. I need to know what languages I should learn, what operating system is best, etc. If someone could start me in the right direction, that would be great so I don''t start learning random languages that would not be useful to game programming. Thanks for the help.
