I'm a C# programmer and I want to be a game programmer. But I have some doubts about it.
1.how important is to know about concept art, character design, and all these others fields in game development?
2. I'm completely lost in what language i have to learn first...

2) You start with the language you know: in this case, C#. It really really does not matter what language you begin with, as long as you stick with it for several good years - plan to stick with it for 3-5 years to really understand programming at a deep level.

The greatest pitfall of all indie-teams is the lack of good "management". Knowing how to manage teams virtually might give you another advantage
