I just started C++, and i was just wondering, how long would it take, if i spent about 2 hours a day, learning C++ as much as i could, and as thoroughly as possible to learn C++ enough to make a basic indie game. Such as a platformer. Would i need to know more than just C++?
I don't want to discourage you, but learning c++ all day long is not all you will need to make a game. There is a certain level of mathematics that goes into game development and you will have to make use of certain game libraries (SDL is the only one that came to mind).
