Yesterday, my friend George asked me: “What do I have to know to become an indie game developer? To make a game from scratch?” I was on a run and my short answer was: “Everything“.
That “Everything” is overwhelming. My answer made me think and I suppose, that George consider me a smug. But, that evening I sat down and I meditated on those questions. Next day I met George and told him:
“Well, George, I made a mistake yesterday, when you asked me about indie game developer. But you know, creating a game is a complex process which takes some time. It’s not everything, as I said, but you have to learn a lot from many fields and of course you can’t do nothing without patience”.
