Don't know what language to learn

Question

Guest ChrisRacer24

I don't know what language to learn and I have got some knowledge with HTML, CSS, Java, LUA and python. I was thinking more of using a game engine and a compatible language with that language but I don't know of any game engines apart from Unity and I was really bad at that.

Theres another free graphics engine, Ogre, but it needs a lot more work and it is far more basic than those 2, you also need c++ knowledge. :lol:

You know HTML and CSS, you can add PHP and Javascript to that, to make more dynamic sites.

Extend your knowledge and put them to use. No point learning something if you don't put it to use, ironic that schools do this (i.e. teaching us Maths that we never really use)

Anyway, what have you created with each of those languages?

HTML and CSS are basic stuff like div and stuff but I have put in a navigation bar which changes pictures when you click and hover over it. CSS is so easy. Java I've used for minecraft modding. LUA hardly anything just used it for computer craft and python quite basic stuff which I have mostly forgot.

Thanks for the advice guys. Peter are there any game engines for python? I am going to install python back on my laptop again later then I will get on with it and learn python while I can and hopefully make some cool programs with it.

To be honest, I don't know anything about game dev Chris, maybe Damian might know :lol:

I'll google it later as I am going to sleep now as it is 00:07 in England

Edit:Just googled for it and got a list from python's website for game engines and there is python ogre and pygame (obviously how did I forget about it).

Server side = python,mysql

Web development = html,css,php ftw!,Jquery,js

You might want to use Game Maker? Simple game engine with their own programming language and drag-and-drop(isn't needed, though).

It's really awesome and you can make advanced games with it aswell :)

My school had that and they have just installed tweet deck for some obscence reason
