Well hello everyone at gamedev names Eric and im new. I have no programming experience at all but I think now is the time I learn a language or 2. I am looking to create a online text based role playing game, browser based. I am really not sure where to start learning nor am I sure about the languages I need to learn. I am pretty sure php is one. If you guys could also help me out with links to free learning resources so I can get started.

I would use either Java or Flex and PHP will more than likely be needed to interact with a MySQL database. If you go the Java route this: Creating a text adventure in Java might get you started. You need to get comfortable using data structures as if you try to do such a thing "linearly" you are going to end up with a horrid mess.

My main advice is to start small and don't bite off more then you can chew.

Good luck!
