I am starting this thread to keep a track of my progress and also get useful insights from good people of this forum. I learnt java in school , loved it and later after my college took job in an IT firm as Java developer. Now it has been a year in my job. I want to ponder into Game Development and learn , develop games and be successful as a Game developer. Then leave my job maybe. I already have this ---> 1. Java Knowledge (Intermediate) 2. Libgdx - Java game Framework Knowledge(Beginner) 3. Can arrange some funds to pay for this venture from salary but not too much as I have other expenses. Doing Currently: Learning Libgdx Framework as much as I can in after time from my job. Taking help from these books. LibGDX Cross-platfrom Game Development Cookbook by David Saltares Marquez LibGDX Game Development By Example by James Cook My company provides me with a free membership of SafariBooks hence was able to get these books for free. What I need ? Google Developer Account (25$) -- As I am still away from actually having completed a game to be published so not a priority as of now. Graphics /Art Work -- I either need someone to partner up with me for Graphics and artwork or I will have to use free ones or spend money on buying some graphics. Can do so not much issues. I have also opened a JV thread (Awaiting Moderation as of now) to bring up anyone else wanting to begin in learning Android Java Game Development .We can connect through skype and maybe speed up our learning. 3rd June, 2016 Took a off from office to think more about my whole plan and organize my journey plans.
