I'm new here, so please accept that I'm a total noob at programming, but I have the will to learn.
I have an idea for a game and I am thinking about making it in the same "style" as "To the Moon" by Freebird Games (If you haven't played it, do yourself the favor, thank me later). Basicly I want to make a game/visual story, with some exploration and some objects you have to find. I don't want any "skills" for the characters, just the ability to move them around by clicking and find some things in fx. a room. But the most important thing in the "game" will be the story and that I have a really twisting story to tell.
I know that To the Moon was made in RPG Maker, and I have therefore been looking into this program, but I have also heard good things about Game Maker, but I know there is a lot of other programs too.. I have never programmed anything in my life, but as I stated, I am willing to learn.
So my question is, which program would suit my needs best?
And also, which programming language does the program use?
Thanks in advance.
