Stop thinking in one-liners, and start working on actual content and game mechanics.

If you never programmed a game before, I would suggest you start by getting your feet wet with a few much simpler games (tetris, space invaders, that kind of games).
Starting with your dream game may look like a good idea, but you'll have to solve too many things at the same time then, and you'll drown or get nowhere. First learning about programming a simple game gives you a lot of experience in how these things generally work. When working on your dream game, you can just use that knowledge, instead of having to invent that at the same time.

Otherwise, starting small and extend iteratively tends to work better than the big bang approach of throwing it all together and hope it will work.


Note that "engine" here generally means a generic piece of software/framework that allows you to build a large number of different games. While each game has some sort of engine, there is no point in developing that as a separate entity for you, since game and engine are the same thing.
