    Hi, I am Naokit. I'm new to this community and it is my first attempt to create a thread.

    I am 21 years old and I am a student studying finance at college. Having no prior experience of programming, yet i am very keen to become an indie game developer. I use mobile app every day and i'm very impressed with the things I can do on this tiny gadget. And I came to think that it would be extraordinary cool and awesome if i could just make one. But I am still not sure where I should start and what to expect. I want to develop a mobile game app on Android. Civilization is my favorite so I want to make another strategical thing on the android.
    Somebody, please help me get into this world!

    and I can add a lot of work, first of all you need to study, and then apply what you studied. It's a difficult path, nothing easy...

    Learn a skill and team-up with other people with different skills.
    OR get some budget and hire people.

    These are the 2 main ways to do it ;)

    I think it all depends on your programming level. In my experience, developing a video game demand several different profiles: game designer, programmer, art director, scriptwriter. But also demands someone to do the marketing campaign and also the social media. With all these profiles you can create a video game and cut the procedure in diferent pieces.
