No, don't try UDK.

DO NOT TRY UDK.

UDK is outdated and old. Use UE4 (Unreal Engine 4) instead.

Try udk is one of the best game engine for graphics.

Ive never personally made a game but as Arend Peter Castelein says, if you don't want to go down the hardcore coding route and want to make life a lot easier for yourself. Use a 3d Game Engine such as unity, UDK (unreal development kit), or Game Maker for 2D games. All of the engines are free to use, some have subscriptions for more advanced versions and If you want to use them commerically you usually have to buy a licence before you start selling a game made with their engine. (I know this to be true with UDK).

However, If you do want to go down the hardcore coding route, you will defiantly need a library such as lwjgl to go 3D. You would also need a library if you wanted to do 2D stuff. You can do 2D stuff with just bare java but it would be pretty slow and painful.

A good language for 2D is python with the use of the pygame library so you can look into that.

I know minecraft pocket edition was coded in C++ so you could hedge your bets there, generally any well known language will probably do the job.

In my opinion it's best to make games in programs design for making games. As for which program it depends on what type of game you're making. I like Game Maker a lot but Unity is probably one of the best free options out there for 3d Games. If you want to make games in a language you could use library to make your life easier. Minecraft was made in Java using the lwjgl library.
