    Silly question...but I want to make a game!

    Hi, I've been playing facebook games for a while and want to make my own

    I realise it's a huge, probably very silly step to take; from playing games to programming them; and I have absolutely no knowledge of flash, programming or anything like that!

    But, I've decided I'd like to create my own game based on the Farmville and My Zoo type games. My game will be similar to My Zoo - where you open and run a zoo with cutesy-looking animals! - but better

    So...where do I start?

    I know it may take months or even years to learn to do this, but I like a challenge - so in very simple terms, how do I do it? What do I need to learn, etc.?

    It certainly will take months before you can begin to make a game such as this
    But don't be dishearted, if this is what you want to do, you'll have fun doing it!

    I'm just after finishing this book -http://www.amazon.co.uk/Learning-Act...9000402&sr=8-1 - and I highly recommend this to any beginner starting off on the learning curve.
    If you don't have the cash to spend there are many helpful resources online, including this site, www.tutvid.com, http://www.gotoandlearn.com/, http://www.senocular.com/ to name but a few of the literally thousands of flash community sites.

    The learning curve is a big one for a beginner, but as i said earlier if you presivere and keep your goal in mind you will get there
    Just be sure that you are really interested in this because you will need an interest to keep on going.

    Good luck!
