As Fernanda mentioned, It totally depends what type of game you're trying to build up and how much game development knowledge you have. If you're new to this field and excited to explore game development and you may start up with mini games development and share it with your friends & peers to have their feedback and make the improvements accordingly.

It depends. I would recommend exploring the gaming development platforms available. Some are free and some paid. Roblox is one popular platform available for game enthusiast to develop games.

Alex’s Answer

Something very basic could be developped in a couple of days, assuming you have an understanding / knowledge of a game design platform or appropriate language and library. My brother is an indie game designer and the skeleton of his first "real" game (part of an intro course he attended) was developped in about 2 weeks if I recall (but then of course you will probably always want to refine and improve so really it can go on forever !). Even kids can design (very basic) games in a couple of days using for example Scratch (for young kids) or even Python (lots of tutorials available). That being said, if you're intending on creating a game to sell it, you're probably looking at a much longer timeframe, different tools (ex: Unity, Blender, etc), even more so if you're not working on it full time or if you're on your own (or if you design your own assets vs. buying them)...

Alex recommends the following next steps:

Look into Scratch for basics of programming concepts (with blocks) if age appropriate

Fernanda’s Answer

It depends what type of game, usually multiple years if it is a huge game like the latest New World. You don’t have to buy anything for starters, maybe you should check some online pages where you can make your video game with and introduction to programming languages. That sound like fun!
