Hello :)
There probably already is a thread for this, but if there is, I didn't find it.

So I played 'DnD: Warriors of the Eternal Sun' recently. And I'd love to find something somewhere that can help me develop a game like that.

Something that a single guy (When spending a great deal of time) Can create solo.
Something that I can use to create a simple game, to create a solid story.

Any help is appreciated :)

And sorry if my question is a little. . . Noobish, but I am new to the game development buisness :p

Hi! I would recommend you to start learning C++ if you didn't do so yet!
A really good tutorial series is this one: http://www.youtube.com/user/antirtfm?blend=1&ob=4

When you know C++, I'd recommend you to start with a 2D game, as you was already planning to do I see.

Try to use either Allegro (easy to learn, not as flexible), or SDL (a bit harder to learn, but more flexible, and can also be used in combination with OpenGL(a very commonly used 3D programming language).

Good luck!

If you want to make a game, use a tool like Game Maker.

If you want to learn how to program games, then you should learn a programming language. Some languages that I would recommend are Python and C#. I would not recommend C++ to a beginner.
