Michael’s Answer

While an undergraduate degree related to the field you want to be in is going to help you get a job, its not always required if you have a great portfolio of games that you have completed on your own or with a team.
One of the best engineers I have worked with was self-taught, and while he did things differently he was super fast.

Simeon’s Answer

Generally, an undergrad degree is expected, but you could try your hand at video game development on your own. As a video game developer, it will help to develop your own portfolio of games you've made. I'd recommend checking out game jams like the one hosted by Game Maker's Toolkit on itch.io. He has a very successful Youtube channel and has had record-breaking numbers of participants in his game jams these past years. Game jams are multi-day events where entrants compete to make games that match the theme of the jam. You don't need any prior experience to participate and you'll find people, especially on Discord, who would be excited to point you in the direction of free resources. It helps to have a focused event like this to practice using a skill. It makes it easier to practice the skill and wrap your head around which parts of the coding process are giving you issues.
