Question gaming engine / api

looking at creating an api (or game engine) for linux which would aid game developers in creating games in the style of the old games such as Pong, SMB, Night Driver, Zelda, Ultima, etc. This engine (or api) would focus on the graphics and sound that these older systems produced not actual gameplay. suggestions?

any ideas on how to create or develop an api that might fit the bill?

Yeah, learn 4 years worth of programming, and then make something that won't pay you anything for your hard work.

No, I'm pretty sure you'd get that sort of answer anywhere populated with people who are knowledgeable on a subject when you ask a question that displays complete and utter ignorance on the matter. Walk into NASA and tell them you're planning to colonize Mars and then ask if they have any idea how to build a rocket. You'll get a similar response.

In your case, just getting his mom naked in front of you will be enough for you to launch a rocket. Unfortunately, I think you have to be careful. I suspect your twitchy and you are more likely to colonize the inside of your pants in about 3 microseconds than any mom colon-nization.
