    Default What program should I use to make a basic game in java?

    I have done a course for java so I understand variables, loops, RNG stuff like that.
    I've used game maker language to make like 30minutes games that are not that bad, but I don't want to use a third party software to code.

    I can make text games, but I want to integrate images and pathing and things like that.

    so how can I go about doing this?

    Perhaps you should checkout Greenfoot.

    Greenfoot teaches object orientation with Java. Create 'actors' which live in 'worlds' to build games, simulations, and other graphical programs.

    Greenfoot is visual and interactive. Visualisation and interaction tools are built into the environment.

    The actors are programmed in standard textual Java code, providing a combination of programming experience in a traditional text-based language with visual execution.

    I'll check it out, but it seems kind of like gamemaker in the idea that you have to use preset tools to make things. I want more of something to do with open and free where I can make a game just by using my own skills. Let's say I want a platform game, or a shooter, or a 3d, I want to be able to make any of these without using preset tools.
