    I don't know why but I really feel like making my own indie game.
    I have very basic knowledge of programming as I am only halfway through the course of my high school's first programming course.
    The only language that I say that I have truly mastered is scratch, my teacher has only touched the beginning of python and game maker.
    I want to know if there is a language that is best for making games, and isn't too difficult to learn.
    Next year for my senior project I will be making a game, and I don't want it too be on scratch or game maker lol.

    I forgot
    It...kind of depends on the game really. 3D games? Side scroller? 2D platformer? Top down? Strategy? FPS? TPS? What do you really want to make?

    I would say something in the view of castle crashers. I don't think it's a platformer, but its not a top down either.
    It isn't going to be anything like castle crashers though.
