Hi Callan S,
Yeah, I agree with you and it's actually my way of doing A.
I have bigger ideas of videogames I would like to create but I know I can't "reach" them, i'm not enough experimented yet. I just wanted to set a "theme" to my game, that's why I talk about my game like if I was dreaming without even starting to make my game, you're right I shouldn't talk of my game like this.
But don't worry if something I want to make is really too hard I will leave behind this thing.
To answer your question: I don't know but working on this project help me to judge my abilities.
As of today, i have made "the basics" for the player (movements, level system including XP and HP progressing W/ level and shooting system), and for Monsters ( with a detection range which when crossed, the monster focus the player and following him).
Right now I'm working on items. I want to create a firing system with 2 parameters: the number of bullets by shoot (to make "double-shoot","triple-shoot"...) and the number of bullets by salvo.
Thank you for your opinion, I understood well what you wanted to tell me. I'm taking notes.
