My name is Nikita, I'm 19 currently. I'm from Mother Russia, working for FSB and trying to recreate the Soviet Union...
So, I have some questions that I hope you can help me with:
I REALLY enjoy playing the game Rimworld. It's kinda realistic, filled with details and random stuff like random (good or bad) events, random character traits, so it's kinda like a real-life game. I really like to manage my colony, overcome the troubles, and evolve. Now I decided I wanna create a clone of it, but with some my own stuff that this game doesn't have. I DON'T WANT to make a mod for it (at least right now, when I start), I want to make a standalone game that will basically be 80% like Rimworld. Of course it will be MUCH simplier, at least at the beginning.
1) What engine do you suggest for such purpose? What programming language should I learn? I have some basic skills in programming (if, while, for - level). My game can also be like with pixel graphics, for old-school look and probably easier for me to create.
2) Tell me please about your exprerience in finding kinda...like-minded people that might help you when you just have nothing but a bunch of ideas in your head?
Sorry for my imperfect English, I don't write things in it like every day.
