Here goes nothing:

My prefix is a language - rather recently designed

The Go programming language was designed 15 years ago.

My infix is a game - to exercise your mind

Go is a traditional Eastern Asian board game.

My suffix is a journey - a trial to undertake

A go can be a journey or an attempt at doing something.

My whole is all ready - proceed, a guess, to make

All go means everything is ready. To go means to proceed. To have a go at means to try.

Yes, the prefix, infix and suffix all happen to be the whole word. They are affixed to nothing, or, as Go programmers would say, to the empty string.

  • $\begingroup$ Yep, that is correct. Also, according to some places, "go" has 368 definitions, hence the title. $\endgroup$
