You could take it step by step like this, to get a really good understanding of the basics:
  • Create a blank fullscreen window
  • Draw a line following the mouse
  • Draw an image on the screen
  • Move/rotate the image when a keyboard button is pressed
  • Play some sounds when keyboard buttons are pressed
  • Add a simple 3d physics library (eg. Box2D) and play around with collisions
  • By now you'll already have plenty of ideas on how to follow up!
