I personally think modding Amnesia is a great place to start learning programming. It's easy and simple and you don't have to worry about 90% of the rest that comes with making a traditional application from scratch. No memory management needed (just make sure you don't make infinite loops). The engine scripts are also very descriptive and easy to use and they do what you tell them to their best effort.

If you want to pick up something else from here on, I'd say go for it. It'll be an easier introduction if you already know the basics of programming and the mindset needed, things you might've learned here.

I was just about to say I think I'll return making Amnesia custom stories as now programmer may be my profession in the foreseeable future. AngelScript was the place where I got interested in it in the first place. And now both Amnesia and The Machine for Pigs are -85% off Steam Tongue. Didn't have these on my current Steam account, for my surprise. Quite Ironic.

So AngelScript would be a decent place to start?

Yeah, it's quite simple, imo, but it is based on C++, so it's a two edged blade.
AngelScript might help you understand how game scripting and logic works - and you might even learn a thing or two, but it doesn't make you a programmer. Begin from Java if you covet that. Then choose which way you want to go would be my advice. Some even start from Python, which is even easier, relatively speaking. There's not really the "best" way to go. Every language is different and similar at the same time.

Hopefully only temporarily. It's been a fair while since their last release. Maybe the next one will revive the forums a bit...Though I wouldn't put my money on it. These things happen though.

I think they need to focus more on a modding and community scene for their next title for there to be more activity here. As it stands, SOMA did not quite deliver what they had hoped in terms of moddability, so we only got the occasional tech support threads here in the aftermath of its release. Hopefully the next title(s) will improve on that, because the community sorely needs some love after our daddies have left us Sad
