    First thing you need to do is learn how to program.

    The only way you can do this:

    1. Install devkitARM and libnds.
    2. Learn C or C++.
    3. Learn how to use libnds to properly use the DS's GPU to render 3D.
    4. Create a working game engine.
    5. Obtain an artist to create textures and other assets for your game.
    6. ???
    7. Profit!

    This will never get done. Do not even attempt it, as you will not get past step 2 for a lengthy period of time. Also, considering your proficiency with the English language, step 2 may take you even up to 3 or 4 years. This does not even consider the time required for the other steps.

    One last thing. Do not go around asking for a programmer to help you write it. Nobody wants to be told what to make for no pay. Homebrewers make what they want to make, not what some unknown person demands of them.

    No one will. As said before, it will never finished. Hell it will probably never begin. You need to be reasonable, if any ordinary Joe could make their own games, we'd never run dry of games to play. Everyone would have their perfect game. [​IMG]

    Your expectations are unrealistic and nobody is going to invest the massive amount of time it would take to make an entire game just because you think it would be cool. The reason people don't respond favorably to threads like these is because the mere fact that the poster thinks that his request is reasonable shows that he has no idea what the scope of the project will be or how to go about executing it.

    What you need to do is let go of this idea for now and start smaller. Pick up a C textbook from the bookstore/library or look for resources online, and start building a foundation. It will take years of practice and a lot of hard work, but you need to bring something substantial to the table if you want to be taken seriously.

    Good luck.

    This reminds me of when I was 7, and I would draw on index cards some screens of the GBC games I wanted to make.
