I feel way ahead of the gamers, but far behind the game. Pun not intended (but cool how it worked out that way).
I have been experiencing a flux of them, and perhaps some of you have also. My main barriers are:
How do you make a game? That is the basic question. Lot's of resources. Can you learn that API? Can't program? Learn that first. Which language? Okay, now how do I do this...? Too hard, too basic, and incomplete tutorials.
Even when you go to school, a GOOD education can still be hard to find. Tuition. I go solo, and that is even more true me. So that brings me to the next barrier:
If you are broke and unemployed like me, you can't buy half the tools, resources, information, that you would "prefer." But people "have to make a living right?" I don't blame them either. They say it takes money to make money.
No information and no money means you have to obtain that information the old school way. Trial and error? But I am broke now!
The main things that prevent me right now are information and skills. I am all free and open source right now. Blender, Godot, and finally a photo editor I can trust (sorry Gimp).
I am not a beginner, so to speak, so I posted it for discussion in the lounge.
What barriers do you, or have you experienced?
