    You aren't going to like this answer, but the best thing you can do is start small. Smaller than you think is interesting. Have you ever created a game before? If not, then start with something like Pong. Work your way up to something like Mario, then after you understand how a game loop, user input, collision, etc works, you can try for something like your actual goal.
