If it was me, I'd do it in Ruby and write C extensions for the places
where performance is really critical. The savings Ruby provides in
easy programming and easy maintenance make it great for writing most
things in, even games - you just might need to do some low level work
where you see bottlenecks. You may get away with writing quite a lot
in Ruby though if you optimise for perfomance; there have been quite a
few discussions here recently on how to do that.

If you want some help on how to go about it, there's a strange book
out called "Game
programming with Python, Lua and Ruby". You can get it on Amazon here:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1592000770/103-57...

.. or if it was me I'd try http://www.abebooks.com because I don;t
mind second-hand books at a fraction of the price.

There was a comment on the book on Ruby-Talk before:
http://blade.nagaokaut.ac.jp/cgi-bin/scat.rb/ruby/...

I myself found it fairly introductory but it has a fair top-level
overview of how to go about undertaking such a project. I say
"strange" because it covers three languages in one book, and that is
very strange.
