Hey, I work and games and right off the bat, it’s important to learn what kind of games you like and what part of it you want to learn how to make. I usually say pick art or coding, though you can go into music, production, or testing. Then learn what programs they use and what tools you’ll need to learn to make those things. There are LOTS of videos online once you find out which part of games you like to learn those programs.

For instance, I make 3D weapons so I learned 3DS Max, Substance Painter, and Unreal Engine because I like guns, art, and sci fi. So those are the kinds of things I make for a studio that makes those kinds of games. If I wanted to make anything else in a kind of game I like, I’d be learning how to make that instead. Its all about practice and then you meet people that are developers and want to work with you.

My close childhood friends started the biggest video game companies. Activision; SEGA; EA to name a few.

Their biggest concern was that newcomers be able to communicate clearly. Example, if a director gives you a chunk to test you need to be able to test and write up your response in MS Excel in clear language directing them to the bugs you have found so they can be fixed. Clear communication is key. Learn English writing well and sign up for coding in Web 2.0 coding-courses. All html, or C++.

Good luck!! Let me know if you have any questions.
