That is a bit of a toughy. If you are looking for anything simple
nothing comes to mind. From the description of the project it sounds as
though you will need to program the project from scratch, and that can
be a major undertaking if you don't have the prerequisite skills needed
to program something like that. If you are planning to have the
application run both on Windows and Mac, as your initial post suggests,
I do have some advice for you. Though, what I am about to suggest is
As far as a programming language I would suggest C#, called C-Sharp, for
the project. It is fairly easy to learn, is supported on
Windows/Mac/Linux, and there is quite a bit of free and commercial
documentation around for it these days. The best resource for a new C#
which is were I get most of my programming materials. However, it does
cost about $20 USD per month to be a member.
As far as sound, graphics, and keyboard Input I highly recommend
SDLDotNet. I have recently switched all of my games over to use SDL for
precisely the Windows, Mac, and Linux support. You can find it at
and they have some starter materials there.
Finally, you can get the Visual Studio development sweit for Windows
from my developers web site
