Design Four Against Darkness (Converting a PnP game into a Video Game)

Hello all,

New to this community but have always been interested in game design. I had the idea to convert the Pen and Paper Dungeon Crawler game Four Against Darkness into a video game experience. For those not familiar its a turned-based party RPG dungeon crawler. You roll 2 d6's, find the corresponding dungeon tile in the book and attach it to your map. You roll d6's on everything, monsters, reactions, treasure. etc. I now have a collection of over 10 books in this game and would love to make a digital collection to play. This is a personal project for fun and learning that I don't plan on distributing for obvious copyright issues.

So my question is: How would you recommend I go about doing this? Is there a particular set of assets on the marketplace that would be best? I had a look and there are many dungeon generators but given my purposes and skill level would one be better suited than another? I learn best when taking apart assets and tinkering to my liking, but building up from scratch is something I'm prepared to do. Any help in this would be so greatly appreciated. (Not my image just a quick google image search to give you the idea.)

Cheers!

If your new I would suggest just starting to learn the basics. There are tutorials to go through to get comfortable. I would argue it would be difficult to make any game without learning some basics or you will be constantly stuck and frustrated. Then you can start to focus on your game genre.

Im not sure about the assets. You could browse the asset store and see what they have.
