I think I might be able to help out with this.

 

Do you plan on making the game web based or a Windows type game? From their I can help you decide on language and maybe get you pointed in the right direction here.

Well if you want to do a console window style game you can use C#, Python, or C++ fairly easily. There is tons of documentation on all of those languages if you do not know one yet. If you want to do one with graphics and are using an actual window then look at Unity, XNA, DirectX with C++, or drawing in C#.

 

Are you doing console window or regular window?

Will the game be text based, use 2d, or 3d art? This would help in deciding on which language to start.

However, your best bet is to start with the Game's Design Doc before picking a language to build the game. By writing out a game design or development doc you will actually learn a fair amount about the game. You can also get a feel for the games mechanics and the artwork or other media pieces likes sound you may need for the completed project.
