Okay, let's take a real world look at working from home. I know a guy who is the game developer with a game designer working with him. The game developer does all the coding and the game designer designs the game while managing the art team.

Surprise!! Posted Image Everybody working on this game is working from home! The game developer is indy with a degree, but the rest of the team are all indy working from home with no degree! Said game developer has had big contracts in the past in his own right.

The point is that working from home is no indicator of education or indy status. Some indies have a team and work from home. Some corporate people are working from home, too! There are indy game developers using the worksite of their regular job in their spare time to make games. We need to be careful to keep ourselves free from quick assumptions. Posted Image

What isn't clear to me from my post is whether your intent is to become a lone-wolf dev (indie) that works from home and develops games for yourself or clients, or actually jumping straight into the industry afterwards.
