It would certainly be easier if you could elaborate just a little more.

What platform do you want to code for? Is this for iOS? Android? Windows or Steam? Mac?

Do you have any language preferences? If you are an expert in python, you may find a python engine way more valuable than an Objective-C engine.

What kind of engine do you prefer? Some engines require you to write all the source code yourself using their SDK; others are entirely drag n drop while yet others are drag n drop but allow some form of scripting like Lua.

Do you want the engine to be multi-platform? If so, what are your target platforms?


These are all very important questions (and I may have even missed some).

For example, if you wanted to develop apps for both iOS and Android and had no coding experience at all, I would recommend Corona as it allows you to do that relatively easily.

Target platform : PC (Windows)
I am good at C++ programming, I am planning to develop a 2D game (like a Mario).
