What should one do?

This Question is based on what you should do to create your Indie game. Or in fact create any game. There is a simple answer really...

Do what you are best at, and try hard to avoid doing the parts you are not.

Now although the answer is easy. It does have the annoying logic that you must know what you are good and bad at to actually perform in this way way. Finding out what you are good at and not so good at takes practice. this knowledge can also be obtained by asking friends or family or workmates or even superiors at work. This seems obvious, but to be honest it is really hard to believe them, or even take the criticism from them, and mark my words. It will sounds bad to your ears to learn you are not an all-star at everything you try.

It is however really important to get help on the areas you are not great at. so you now know you need to fins out your strengths, but while you are at it. Look around at your friends and workmates to see what you think their strengths and weaknesses are.

The sign of a good and experienced manager is one that can discern this information, even when you yourself might not agree... at first.
