Hey guys, does anyone know a good program for making a game? I plan on making a zombie survival game, third person in nature, and want to know if anyone has any advice. Feel free to lend a hand.

Programming languages can be used, but Gamemaker and RPG Maker are two programs that I can think of off the top of my head that you can also use to build games.

I saddly only really know extremely specific languages, rarely used outside of one game. However, I am stuborn and insane, so could potentialy figure out any coding language that becomes practical. That's how I learned what little I know, that's how I will learn more.

yeah, Gamemaker was pretty easy to use, and there is quite some help available if you'd need that.
I did find that depending on what I was planning to do, it was easier for me to just stop using the built-in drag-and-drop things and to just replace almost everything with scripts/code.
Act first, then think, then try to find a way to cover up the horrible mess you made.
