I am new to gaming platform and don't have any experience in gaming as well. I want to develop a small shooting game and don't have any idea from where to start and which platform to use like things. I have some experience in java and .net. Can anyone help me in giving me a start? I don't mind even if this question is voted down or closed. But please do help me. I've tried searching other similar questions but everyone is already into gaming and i can't get any of the words. Please refer me to some books or tutorials
I would suggest you take a look at XNA or Unity. XNA is perfect if you have some c# knowledge, its free and there are plenty of resources out there.
I'dont have any experience with Unity so I cannot describe pro's and con's and major differences between them, but I found XNA to be pretty complete and easy to begin with.
