    Default What language to use?

    Hi.

    So I wanna create games for Windows. No shooter or RPG or so, but Jump 'n' Run or Roguelikes (no high graphics) with maybe a Multiplayer mode.
    I have nearly no experience in that, so 1. Is Java the right thing for that? and 2. Should I learn an easier language first? Which?

    2. Java is a great introduction to programming language and there are many new programmer tools for Java available with a search, as not to favor one over another I will just say try several.

    thanks you really helped me out a lot.

    now that's not important, but how long do you think would/will it take to learn java until I can create a small game?

    depends what kind of game...if it has graphics are you good at making them? or do you have a place you can get them etc..making a small game like a side scroller type like old mario bros youll need the basics of java and you can do pretty well

    I started with a project. Im still very beginner, but i can create an application, where you have an "Character" what runs & jumps
    You should start with that game. Make it as your own "project". So basically ; Start java with your in-coming game!
