What tools should I use to make an immerse environment game like Minecraft, or any first-person shooter game?

I want to create a 3D mindmap where you can pinch-zoom to move in and out and view the mind-map from different angles. I'm assuming there's a tool used to create 3D immersive enviornment games like this outside of just Photoshop, java, and XML.

you need a 3d graphics engine such as Unity. Creating any kind of game (but especially 3D) is an immense and challenging task, and there isnt really one "tool" to make one. But if you are interested I would look up some unity tutorials on youtube etc to try and get a handle on what else you need to know. Unity also has some tutorials on their site, but I cant speak for how good they are since Ive not tried them out

Thank you. I'll look into Unity.
