I have made some RTS games before, so far they have been very simple with basic pathfinding and only a few units. I am thinking the game could be done in silverlight (decent graphics is not a priority) with C#, as that is where I have the most experience. I also have some experience using openGL and DirectX, but those seem like they would be more difficult to use with a web launcher and 2D graphics is just fine for my game.
The web integration part is where I have the most questions. I basically want to make lobby for players to set up games, then launch the game. It should also have some other features like chat and a ladder. What languages or tools should I learn to make the website (I have almost 0 web development experience)? Is something like this even feasible for someone with limited resources? I am thinking the game would run in browser, but is it also possible to have the site launch the game and have it run separately?
