    Yes, yes you can but most people start off from a already existing game, and just modify it to there pleasing.

    You seem a bit carried up. Start by coding a beautiful 'hello world' and post binaries here and you will be high up in our esteem.

    Learn C++ first.
    Because you're not being helpful at all and that'll help you.

    We CAN tell- Because half of your posts don't even have punctuation marks, making it very hard to understand.

    Most development environments'd probably be more useful if you owned a computer.
    Learn to program something else before jumping into a daunting project like this.

    Don't expect to have half a game anytime soon, development takes a long while especially if you don't know anything about coding and need to learn that first.

    1. You can't program anything without programming knowledge
    2. using engine is a real way.
    3. game maker can be considered an engine
    4. without certain knowledge you can't really use game maker
    Protip: start using rpg maker and you can start learning scripting from there. eclipse would be a bit harder and you'd need to script a few more things to make it complete but it's online...
    you obviously don't know what you're talking about, please learn more about these things before jumping into homebrew development on an old console, try making ds homebrew using foxi4's guide to the very least if you want to make something for gaming systems.

    another thing: you want to make a n64 game, you probably have one but do you have a flashcart? you don't have a pc to use an emu and debug it...
