Hi, I'm trying to become an indie game developer. I'm learning directX atm and I'm trying to figure out what direction to take.
I'm wanting to develop intensive 2D and perhaps some simple 3D games.
I've looked into the windows store, but I'm not sure that's the place for me. Are the retailers to sell games for real, or are there a lot of scams out there?
How do I find a trusted retailer to sell my games? Should it cost money to sell my game? What programming API's should I be looking to develop with that will encompass 2D and 3D desktop games? What do I do if I want to go mobile, the API's seem unrefined for beginners?
I know these are a little bit scattered questions, I'm just full of questions, I really want to make games.
