  1. Hi forum, I am trying to get into developing online web multiplayer games. At first I had no idea where to start but after a lot of searching, I found I can achieve what I want using HTML, Javascript and websockets. I have programming experience in html, php, python, java, and mysql and Im just looking to learn something new! What I want to achieve is to build a game similar to the already existing game Habbo hotel (www.habbo.com). What I want to be able to do is create something where a user can go on, load the client in their web browser, and then be shown a navigation guide that shows them different rooms. They can then enter the rooms with their character and move around, etc. (If you have played the game you know what I am after.) I want this to be real time which is why I want to bring in node.js and socket.io (both I have to still learn how to use.) Since I have just gotten into this, I have no idea where to start.. I have read many forums that suggested Impact is a good canvas to build off of but all the tutorials I have seen haven't shown what I want to do. Can anyone confirm Impact would be a good choice for me to continue with this project? What I am asking for is some direction on where to start, and what tools I need to get this project started. Any help is greatly appreciated!
