Which language should I use ?
Happy new year to you all :) After a year of not doing anything website related, I'm back here with a new project. But first, I am hesitating between two languages :
- flash with actionscript
(ok, I know, flash is evil, and moreover, it would be my first website with flash, and I don't really have a clue how to do it)
My website (at least a part of it) would be a bit like a video game (remember Indiana Jones, or Monkey Island, in the late 80's ?). It would allow the user to interact with some objects. A bit like J.K.Rowling's website (but not as complicated. Here is the website : http://www.jkrowling.com/en/index.cfm).
However, the user should be able to combine two or more objects to form another object, which he can then use to do an action on another object. He should also be able to collect objects and store them in an inventory. He can look at the objects, or use them (like in a video-game).
There will also be something similar to my last website, which is a different design during the day and during the night. But because I'm really crazy, I'll add stuff like the user needs to water the plants otherwise they start to die. (I guess I can achieve that with simple php conditional statements)
My main concern is not the accessibility (this is just a website "for fun", I'll make another one more simple), but I wouldn't want to end up with a 5000 lines start page ^^.
So, what would be your advice ? (except, of course, "don't do this website and do something else")
