Hi Advik, nice to meet you!

I released couple of games already , so from my 0$ budget expierience I would go with Windows, MacOs and Linux, because there are some Indie websites that will let you put your game in without a fee, and if your game will be good they even promote it. Like http://gog.com or http://gamejolt.com . As for IDE Im using C# , for beginners there is some cool engines like Game Maker Studio https://www.yoyogames.com/gamemaker or more complex(but when you get used to it possibilities are endless) Unityhttps://unity3d.com/ .

Well it really depends on what type of games youre  focusing on , if 2D than Game Maker, if 3D than its totally Unity, you can make some cool 2.5D games with Unity not sure about Game Maker. I would go with Unity , its more complex as I say , but when you get a grisp on you can make some really amazing stuff. Hope It helped :)

The ones you have.

JavaScript is an increasingly common first programming language. It's the language of web games. If you have a web browser you've got the tools you need.  You can start here, then find more comprehensive resources with your favorite search engine.

 

C# is another popular first language. Assuming you're on Windows, Microsoft has the Visual Studio Express Edition for free that you can download for C# development, which is a great IDE.   It is also the programming language used with the Unity game engine.
