  2. #2

    One on hand:
    -RPGs are probably the hardest game type to create.

    On the other hand:
    -Text games are far easier then Graphics based games.

    You will require fairly decent knowledge about arrays. Some basic input/output stuff. It doesnt really take much to get started actually. Starting a project like this is IMHO the best way to learn more.

    You can have a look at the Text RPG Example on this page on my site if you want a basic idea of what one could look like. Theres some other stuff there too that leans towards learning this kind of stuff as well.
