I'm newer, so i want to ask this for advice.

My target is publish some interesting & funny & free ( Open Source , 0$ ) game.

But i don't want to do many things like to study write a lib for the graphics , Write many code for the low-level layer. That's will waste many few free-time.

So please talk the advice in:
@Make game with friends in internet using few time.
@Good tools and good method to save time and focus the game make.
@Good way for the free / open source game project run (like donate).

Thank everyone to reply!

Well if you don't want to write a lot of the boilerplate code then I'd go with something like Slick2D for 2D games, and maybe something like JMonkeyEngine for 3D. Both of these are higher level wrappers of OpenGL, if you want something more low level then you can use LWJGL. Of course, if you've never done any game programming in Java you should start with Java2D Smiley If you need Java2D info there are some good tutorials under the "Game Tutorials" section here.

Those all don't matter. If you want to be fast go with unity, game maker or else.

You need motivation first. If you enjoy the progress of game making then you'll find it easy, no matter if your game sucess or not.

THX Z-man

and i think ReBirth is right, if enjoy to make game, so that's not hard things.

So i think i just to make game with AWT , or some high-level wrappers of opengl.

That's easy.
