Just to warn you, applets are quickly becoming a thing of the past. If you want to make a browser game I have some suggestions:
- Flash and ActionScript is still widely supported and will remain strong for several years. You can alternatively use C/C++ with FlashCC.
My main thoughts here are -
- I've looked into unity3D, however I cant develop it in linux (my preferred OS).
- As I mentioned, I know MMOs take time and money and developers etc and it needs to be noted that this would be my end goal after making a few different gams. Im not looking to build the next world of warcraft. It's just something ive always wanted to build and have a go at. If it gets done, it gets done.. if it doesnt, it doesnt. At least ive tried and had fun in the process.
I thought Java was the solution I wanted for building games, am I wrong?
