Hey guys, I'm a 21 years old computer science student, who happen to live in Egypt, and as much as I can find, computer scientists are not common in my country, we are 4 in class, none interested in game developing, our uni don't really have courses for game developing, and we don't have a single game-developing company...

Long story short, I can't really begin my career in my country, so my question is, can I somehow get a contract from a company abroad and be able to work there if I developed some good small games (if that's a correct term) for the next years? or should I start thinking about developing games as a lone wolf?

And just one last question, can money from... small games earn me good money to look into it as a career, or I'm better just going to a company as a web developer or something and forget about the game developing..

That's possible.

Are you a Renaissance man? (A great artist, a great musician, a great programmer, a great businessman)

My recommendation is that you take some time to read some of this forum's FAQs, like FAQ 64 for starters, then read some more.

.... no sad.png, I lost at the great artist part, but then I'm really looking into the management/low-graphics games, and I'm not what's called "great" at the other areas, but I can work it out I think
