Hello, I have been reading about what I need to learn to make games. I have also been watching videos and studying programmers language. I have been looking at HTML, CSS, Java, and a little on C++. I just have a few questions about making a text based game, what web site can I use to make it if any, and is it free? A text based game I would like to create sometime in the future would be one like Tribalwars.net .

Also if you have any advise to this issue I would appreciate it. :!:

I've never played Tribalwars, but it doesn't look like a text-based game to me -- do you mean MMOG? For something like Tribalwars, it looks to me like you need to host your own server, which might be more than you bargained for.

If you're new to programming, than you might want to pick a language and start learning the basics, from "Hello World" on up. You'll find REALbasic's learning curve lower than most.

Yeah I believe it is a browser game, also I have a web site to put this game on. I just need to know how I can get the codes into game form with a free program. And then to post the codes (game) on to my site.
