Hey guys allow me to introduce myself first off. My name is Dan, I am 23 and have always had a passion for gaming (which everybody else also has...) I currently work in a factory doing 4 days in 4 days off 12hr shift patterns and I cannot afford to give my job up to go back to college then on to university to study game development. I am desperate for a career change and have realised it's now or never to start thinking properly about My future. I really do wish to study game dev and as stated previously I cannot give up my job. So I want to know where do I start and how do I begin my future career in this chosen subject? I have spent about 4 years from 14-18 using swift 3d and adobe flash player to make small animations but nothing major. If anyone can help me on this path with advice on how I start and where I look then I will be very grateful! I will be staying on this forum and it is a pleasure to be here and hello to everyone!
