Obviously, five years of sleeping soundly has build up quite a lot of karma which needs to be righted. I've got a good start, as I haven't slept much at all this past week. I'm just too excited!
I have all the components I need - FINALLY, everything I need - to start making games. Obviously, I'll start with small ones - got to get my feet under me. But the options keep me awake until the wee hours. Which is kind of unfortunate, because I get up not to far after those wee hours.
Now all I need to do is figure out which LANGUAGE to use. I really don't know ANYTHING about web programming. Except PHP, which is largely useless for GUI-driven games. What are my options?
I don't even really know what 'Flash' is, and my Java is five years out of date.
If you have any suggestions, let me know!
