Well, i think i'm at the same knowledge level as you.
I got told that just start is a good way, i'm coding with C# and XNA, when you start everything is a bit overwhelming but i think i get into it slowly, although it's not going to be the best game of the world it's going to be a game-

UnrealScript is a lot like Java/C# so I don't see how that is 'way too high a level'. If you can program in Java or C#, you can program using UnrealScript, provided you have read the documentation.
You could also try creating a very basic (and I mean VERY BASIC, like Pong or something similar) game with Unity (which uses C#) and build from there.

i think i will try with the pong it sounds like a good idea and do you know any good places to learn UnrealScript preferably free

Why not use LibGDX? http://libgdx.badlogicgames.com/index.html. Since you already have Basic Java Experience, this should help you at developing games. There are many tutorials out there for the framework and their community is growing strong (so learning will be a breeze). Additionally LibGDX allows you to develop cross platform games easily. While you make a desktop game you're also producing a mobile and HTML5 game. Check it out and let me know what you think!!!
