Hi all,

If anyone has any questions about game development, or how to get involved, please feel free to ask. I'll do my best to answer!

I am a bit curious about your idea. Tell more if you can.

I've been learning js for one year, usually with some frameworks, but I am not sure if it's enough for game development. What languages do you usually use?

I use C# with Unity. I guess you can make games with most languages, but some languages/engines might be better for certain types of games.

Don't know if this is any good to you, but I made some tutorials a while back, this one shows how to make Pong in Unity - it may be too simple to be helpful to you though:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yqeRxyfTj2s&list=PL3F4ZY8KMRwwTUyPUEG5KwdPeePvLSZQ9

When you've picked a language, let's say Java, how to proceed on to find a program or a framework or however it's called, that's best for making games?

It's going to take a certain amount of experimentation, as in downloading an engine, likely spending a few months doing tutorials to get your head around how the engine works, and trying to figure out how well it will allow you to do what you want. I don't keep up with all the engines/frameworks, but Java isn't very commonly used.

That's not to say you can't make a game with Java, but it may not be the easiest route. One merit of Java is that it's incredibly similar to C#, which is used in Unity, Godot, and a few other engines.
