Sorry to hear it didn't go well. It does look like you've got a bunch of stuff together though, which should give you a big headstart however you choose to continue. I don't think you'd have too much problem porting what you've done into Unity, once over the initial familiarization hump.

Unity is good, because you can get a prototype up quite quickly, just using cubes and other standard parts of Unity. But mainly because with the asset store and popularity of the platform you can already get a wide variety of standard art assets for free in some cases (and Unity has a lot of basic terrain stuff built in) or very little $. Art assets has got to be the biggest hurdle, when working alone.

Like any complex API, Unity takes some work getting to grips with. These are good:

Also it may be worth checking out some of the frameworks specifically designed for working with RPG mazes, such as:
