This question might have been asked a lot of times earlier too, but after an intensive Google search I landed in a no-man's-land. So I am here to ask this.
I have a great interest in programming with C++ and I have even made a lot of university projects in C++. But now I want to start as an indie game developer but I don't know where to start. A lot of questions are arising in my mind and few of which are - Should I learn graphics API's first like OpenGL or Direct3D or should I start with some game programming book which covers both? Or rather I should start with a Game Engine like unity? (I don't want to be a game designer though)
Please provide me your suggestions or links to guides, tuts or whatever reference is available in this regard. My main target is to create games for PC's.
