Hey guys, I'm a 21 years old computer science student, who happen to live in Egypt, and as much as I can find, computer scientists are not common in my country, we are 4 in class, none interested in game developing, our uni don't really have courses for game developing, and we don't have a single game-developing company...

Long story short, I can't really begin my career in my country, so my question is, can I somehow get a contract from a company abroad and be able to work there if I developed some good small games (if that's a correct term) for the next years? or should I start thinking about developing games as a lone wolf?

And just one last question, can money from... small games earn me good money to look into it as a career, or I'm better just going to a company as a web developer or something and forget about the game developing..

That's possible.

or should I start thinking about developing games as a lone wolf?

Anything is possible.

My recommendation is that you take some time to read some of this forum's FAQs, like FAQ 64 for starters, then read some more.

.... no Posted Image, I lost at the great artist part, but then I'm really looking into the management/low-graphics games, and I'm not what's called "great" at the other areas, but I can work it out I think

"#64: Stuck In A Non-Game Country" I'm not really sure how I've missed that.. Thanks alot for your help, guess there's still a hope..
