Pick your favorite language and google for a compiler...

I would suggest C/C++, you''re best bet for a free compiler being MingW with Dev-C++ as an IDE. Get Visual Studio 6 if you don''t mind about spending money.

Other language cchoices include Java, Visual Basic, Many othe flavors of *Basic, etc...

Before attempting to program a game however, you''ll need to learn basic programming. Just get a good book and read on.

For C++, I''d recommend Dietel and Dietel book...

but themn again those are just opinions, don''t flame me heh

OR .NET, especially if you''re a student. I only paid $55 for my copy.

I got my VS .NET for free. I asked my dad''s friend to ask his friend to buy it at UTA. He gave it to me for free! I''m lucky.
