I'm new to the site obviously, but I'm also new to game development in general. Don't get me wrong, I'm not completely clueless. I do have some skill in programming, 3D animation, drawing, and writing, but there isn't much to show yet.
My problem being, I can never focus too much on one aspect without the fear of me putting too much effort in the wrong thing. Here are some examples:
I can code in C++ and C#, but can do little beyond making basic console applications. I stopped putting effort into person study for this because I will soon be returning to school to study computer science as a major and figured I could focus on it then. This just did not feel like I was doing anything relating to gaming. I did not see how to tie this in with the development. Is this even necessary?
Another example is I started working in Blender and started designing and animating 3D models. I also understand a little about the Blender game engine, but it just seems too... unprofessional whenever I view the other's finished projects. It's like the engine itself will lag up whenever someone makes something on par with the 360 and PS3 consoles. I dunno. I am still working on animating and modeling in this program as of right now. I am NO advanced user, but I can make a decent model.
The most recent thing I did was download the Lite version of Unity, because it was something that I learned of here on IndieGamer when I was browsing the forums. I am completelyh clueless on how to even get started using this, and each tutorial I find always assumes you have some idea of how the program works. The only thing I know about it is that models can be made in blender and imported into via fbx format. (I googled that to make sure I was not wasting time in Blender as well)
I'm also a fairly proficient writer, and my drawing skills are above the average persons.
What I am asking you fellow game developers is where should I go from here?
I want to be a game designer/developer/maker as both a hobby, and hopefully one day as a career. As of now I am trying to find some direction, but if you can't tell, I am a little lost...
