Do you know a programming language? If so pick an engine that uses that language.

As Bratie mentioned, SFML is a good option for c++ devs. 

LWJGL and libGDX for java.

monogame for c#.

 

Unity3D is a good option for just about anybody, there are a lot of tutorials, and supports scripting in c# and javascript.

 

If you don't know any programming languages, I would recommend going for c#, python, or java first, but c++ is also an option if you are willing to work a little harder.

  LWJGL is a good library for Java, however figuring out how to do the math for the terrain generation is not going to be easy.

 

Without a game engine I find that creating 2D maps in Java is not very difficult.

For the random generation terrain i might be able to find some all ready codes to copy and paste them tongue.png
