I've been fascinated with the idea of making my own game since I was six years old, but only got the time, resources, and will to learn a language about four years back now. JustBASIC was free, small, easy to learn, and came up on Google really quick, so it was fated to became my engine of choice. My strong suit, however, is writing and story development. I've written roughly eight and a half million words over between three and four hundred short stories, six or seven novellas, and two novels, none of which has earned me a single penny in the eleven years I've been writing XD Hopefully, that will change, but it's not a big deal if it doesn't; writing itself and the experience gleaned is the reward. So yeah, pretty much anything I make will be heavily story-based, and probably text-based too.
I've been tinkering with BASIC for years now and know the ropes pretty well, but my strong suits are story writing and visual design in Photoshop(ish).
