Need Advice For Game Engine In Java

Recommended Posts

(I'm not sure if I am posting this in the right place, so if it is in the wrong forum a moderator can move it if they wish.  Thanks.)

 

Ok, here's a little background:

 

I am programming Java in school and for my final project I was hoping to make a game in a style similar to [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWbanjnE1LU]Golden Sun[/url].  Right now I am probably around an intermediate level in Java programming but I still have quite a lot of time time before I actually have to start this project, so I can learn more in this time.  The reason I am posting this right now is because I'd like to be fairly prepared for the task ahead.

 

Well, my main question is how hard would it be to program a game engine like the one in Golden Sun?  I asked my friend who is quite advanced in Java programming and he said it would be fairly difficult because of collisions and the like, but it's always good to have a second opinion.  

 

Thank you in advance, I am extremely grateful for whatever advice and information you can give me.

The above website has some good tutorials to get you started.  But the main thing to realize is that if you have never made a game before, then this project is too big for your first try.  Most people (including me) tried to make the next greatest game when trying game programming for the first time, only to realize just how much work it would be.  It is better to start with a very simple game and finish it.
