Hey guys, i've been wanting to make a game for a while now, but the hardest part is the initial step. I really would like to make a relatively simple 2d fire emblem-like strategy rpg game. I am pretty knowledgeable in Java and C# among other languages but would prefer to use those if i can. I have no idea what my first step would be though. I would eventually like to release it somehow on steam greenlight or xbox live. But seeing that XNA is no longer being developed i dont think i should go down that road. What are some of the standards for start up indie developers? Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
