Welcome!

Try starting here. It'll give you a good overview of what game development involves, it's a general term really.

C++ is, in my opinion, the way to go. Once you master the main points of the language, you can use SDL, Allegro, OpenGL, DirectX and all the other main API's that are used within programming itself.

It'll take some perserverance though, it won't happen overnight. Keep posting on these boards, there'll always be somebody who knows how to help if you have any kind of problem. [google] is always a good friend too.

Good luck! Hope I helped,

ukdeveloper.
