Hey Dynamic,

Welcome to dream.in.code! I'll move this on over to the Game Programming forum. You're already 1-up on a lot of our new members, normally they just post 3 or 4 more times in other forums :)

Best of luck with your game, I'll let one of our game programmers answer your questions.

See ya around the forums!

So wait, you want to make an online text based game (one that you can play with the internet browser that is)?

If so, then you probably need to learn html, php, css, cf, js? Im not really into programming for the web so i dont know that much about it.

If you want to make a game that runs on the computer itself (like WoW), then you'd probably want to learn C++ and the DirectX or OpenGL.

I don't know any really tuts for texted based games, but if you can look at the source of the ones that already exist. For this, you'll of course need to know how to code. I suggest PHP.

Ok looking at your 2 Example Links, i am assuming you wish to create a Browser Mafia Related Game. I did not even look at the previous posts, because after reading 3 i got bored and confused. Anyways, You should know Basic Webdevelopment Skills, Know PHP, Have Knowledge on Databasing(Acessing Character info,Ect), Have writing skills to create the Story line and have the events typed, Have Good 'Design' Skill to create the interface and what not, Good programs would be AdobePhotoshop for the Designing Part, but Paintshop Pro or even MS paint would be suitable for a Beggining project. Look up some books on PHP and MYSQL databasing on the internet, or find them in your local Bookstore. You also may have to look on ways to create a more user safe Game, becuase this is the internet..and there will be people attempting/Suceeding to Cheat on your Game.
