    Hello there, I couldn't find an introduction topic on this forum, so I thought i'd post one here. :)

    So, My name is Josh, I'm startig to teach myself C++ as of today.
    I've been studying Python for a bit and want to move up :D
    I hope to start developing indie games in a few years. :)

    Any questions, just ask.

    Hi Joshua

    Welcome to the indie gamer forums.

    Can I suggest that you learn C# rather than C++. C# is a simpler more structured C-based language and won't let you make the mistakes that C++ will that can be extremely frustrating to a new player.

    If you know Python you can start making Indie games now using PyGame.

    Start by picking simple game ideas and implementing them. No need to wait a few years.

    That's a good plan. I've made a few commercial games with PyGame. It's mainly limited to PCs (mac,Win,Linux). C# is good for a wider range of platforms, but python/pygame is great for prototyping!
