Hello, so i am basically lost. I want to start learning how to make games, basically how to code them. I was learning c++ in school but without any gui, just basic stuff. So i was searching were i could start, but i dont know any programs except for code blocks, and i dont know what is needed to start making games. Im basically lost, because there's so many different programs and everyone is talking about different ones. So maybe you could recommend me some books or tutorials and also programs and other things with what i could start making something. I would like to do some 2d work at first.
Thanks for your help and time
