Games are everywhere. Thanks to the Internet, everyone can upload small indie games onto the world wide web. But the big question is: How do I make these games? Do I have to join Nintendo, EA or Ubisoft to become a developer – or can I just do it by myself, and maybe with some help of my friends or other creative like-minded people?
