Hey, I've glanced (yeah, I didn't look far) at some of the forum stickys here, but many of them are 4 or so years old.
I was using SwishMax (builds swf files) to create a card game several years ago, but got bored and gave up. I've been bitten by the "create" bug again, and wanted to finish what I've started.
BUT it seems flash animation is no longer the cool kid on the block. So how do I begin again and with what tools? Obviously I'm going to need to learn the syntax of a new programming language, but which one?
