Hey, I was just wondering how I could go about making a text-based game, where a character would do certain things, that would accumulate in his/her stats. Things such as experience, level, etc. I was wondering what programs I would need, etc. It sounds like its pretty simple, but I don't have much experience in progamming, so I thought I'd ask around.
