So, I'm about to start working on my first game and I want to make a RPG. Sadly, I can't afford a game engine, and I also kind of want to do it with just code. I would like to know if it's possible to make a RPG, or really any game, with a start menu, gui, and all that fun stuff without an engine. I plan on using C++ and I'm thinking about learning Lua and Python to help with the process. So, is it possible?
