    Question Where should I start?

    I want to be able to make 2D games in java, where should I start?

    I know how to make text adventures in Python & C++ so I am familiar with programming

    It's my opinion but if you already have done some 2D games in C++ and Python why don't you continue and hone your skills in these languages instead of jumping into Java?
    These are the languages that are being used in the game industry anyway.

    Good for you!!!
    Since I believe you are interested in Minecraft related games, you'll want to Google for tutorials on the LWJGL or LightWeight Java Game Library since this is what Minecraft successfully uses. Best of luck, and please let us know how it goes!
