Three years ago I wanted to make games... so I found this site and learned c++ and SDL and made some stuff for fun, got bored because I wanted to make some grpahics but I generally sucked in making it. Then I went to upper-secondary-highschool (or however it is written... I live in Finland you know...) and some time passed and I bought my self an electric guitar and so I became musician, too bad I started it too late so I won''t be able to get in any university to study musics and if I don''t get lucky with some band I won''t ever be a rock star. That''s not too bad, during this year we had two programming courses in c++ in my school and they were very easy since I had already learned that stuff and I thought maybe I am not that bad at coding anyway. Object oriented programming were piece of cake, actually I learned nothing new and its not because of unprofessional teacher (he writes books of "learning c++" and other stuff). So I am musician who can code c++, make stories (I''ve been writing my whole age), dialogue (poetry, philosophy and drama is something I can do...), map desing (but only desing, not actually drawing anything) and be great aid for game desing... I am very creative and full of ideas... Is here any use for this kind of crew, not very good in coding (ok I am not that experienced coder but I can make some stuff if needed but when it comes to hardware handling and engine building I am totally out... ofcourse I can always learn new stuff) but I am very creative and can add emotional compositions, philosophical dialogues and interesting story lines to your projects... nowdays there is a lack of good RPGs or games with something greater purpose than brainless time burners. P.S: Sorry for all this shit... made too long post =D but you know, when you get crap coming it comes. Also this post may be in wrong place...

The first most-important quality of a game programmer is programming skill. The second is creativity. If you have both, you will do very well.

BTW, don''t give up your day job

for a one-person team programming is most important, simply because a game by a good programmer with little creativity is a crappy game, but a game by a lousey programmer who is very imaginative doesn''t even ever get finished.
