First of all, start small. Your first game is not going to be Shell Shock.

Do you have any experience working in programming languages, like Python or Javascript?

No, it doesn't count but you've answered the question.

So let me explain how a flash game is made.

Generally, people will use ActionScript to determine the game logic of a flash game. You'll need to learn ActionScript 2 or 3 if you want to create flash games.

Actually, wait. Perhaps it would be better if you just used Stencyl or something.

A programm to make flash games, but you can make your game without coding.

and where can i learn Actionscript?
Well, the correct question is how instead of where. You can learn ActionScript following other people tutorials, analize they code and then try to make your own code.

Remember, that video its a simple example, with time you will find how to use packages and OOP in AS3, but for now try to understand how language itselfs works.
Hope you it helps you and if you have any question just ask.
