    Default What do I need to make this?

    Ok so I'm thinking about making an indie game, but it's a new sort of game, a new style of platforming, and it's a multiplayer game and I want it to be in java, but i need the right tools and someone to head me in the right direction of where to go and what to code.
    I like to read coding books, so if someone can tell me a book about java, since I haven't learned it yet, I can learn it that way, and maybe some tutorials too if someone can link me there, but books would be much nicer so I can buy them, because I'm going to school right now, and I can read in class.
    I want players to host their own servers like how they do in minecraft, *so I need someone to tell me how to do that. It's also a 2d platformer/sidescroller. So I hope someone can tell me some stuff about what I just said, thanks.

    Set your sights lower. If you haven't learnt Java then there is no way you should be attempting a game. They don't let med students operate on the first day!

    I think you should pick up a book first. Java:How to Program would be a good idea. Think about writing up like a percentage weight loss calculator or something, after you've done some reading.

    You can try GreenFoot, a really cool tool to develop games in Java, you have a lot of documentation and you don't really need to be an expert...

    But if you want a purely coded by you game, then you will need some months to get into how java works, networking, interfaces, etc.

    Can I have a link to the book? I don't know which one to buy.
