    Help a Newbie Choose a Program Language

    Thanks everyone,   I changed my mind, I think I'm going to start with Enigma, that way learning C++ should be less frustrating and I will rip less hair out of my head while learning it. Ha!

    Starting a Simple Series for Beginners

    EDIT(May 7): Link works now!   This is exactly what I am looking for. I am a beginner looking to learn C++. Unfortunately when I click your link it tells me:

    Help a Newbie Choose a Program Language

    An important question that I forgot to ask... how much will C# cost me? Where can I get it for the best price? I don't have to buy that ridiculously priced Microsoft Visual Studio do I?

    Help a Newbie Choose a Program Language

    Thanks everyone!   OK, so everyone seems to be saying this is a HUGE project that I am undertaking, and I need to start small first?   Should start off by learning Python to get me into programming and then later move on to C# when I am ready to make the game. Or to save time should I just start learning C#. I get the impression that C# or something like it(i.e. C++), is what I will require to make this game?       @starbasecitidel Yes you pretty much nailed my game concept. I believe if done properly, it will be a blast to play!
  5. Hi, I'm new here, and I just read these articles regarding game development for newbies(like me):   http://www.gamedev.net/topic/641721-new-to-the-forums-start-here/ http://www.gamefromscratch.com/post/2011/08/04/I-want-to-be-a-game-developer.aspx   Anyway, the articles didn't scare me away. You see, I am not a programmer, but I have an idea for a game that I can't get out of my head, it wants to be made. I need to make it!   Here's the catch, I know very little about programming, but I have taken a few programming couses in college years ago: QBASIC, Visual BASIC, and Introductory C++, but that is as far as I got because I switched my college major to the healthcare industry.   Anyway, I know what I want to do with this game, but not how to achieve it. Let me first tell you about the game.   Here is a quick description of the game:     Help clear the galaxy from space scum!!!   So, what is my question???  I need to know based on the info I provided above about the game I want to make... which programming language do I need to learn that fits all my needs(and isn't a pain in the ass to learn)?   Python? C#?   I will be happy to answer any question. Thanks for any feedback!
