    Default Which engine / coding language is currently the most promising in terms of sales?

    I need to make some money, but the only thing I wanna make is videogames.
    So, what is an engine / language that I can learn and use to make videogames and sell them ?
    I'm not talking about the present, but about the future as it will surely take some time to learn such language or engine and then probably do what I can do.
    So which language or engine do you suggest to learn so I can make some indie games and where / how to sell them ?
    Of course, I'm not planning to make big games, just indie games (if such term still makes any sense nowadays, of course).

    Oh yeah it'll take time alright. Going to school for this stuff is probably the best bet.

    C++ is probably a big one, also one of the hardest to learn apparently. Unreal Engine is written in C++. Then there's C# which the Unity engine is written in.

    Then there's Python which is supposed to be easier.

    As for selling stuff I have no idea.

    I agree, but you need to find a school where programmers teach practitioners who are actually involved in software development today, not just know the theory.

    To sell your wares you'll need a website therefore webmastering and server-side coding will be necessary unless you want to pay someone else to run your site. I agree with you on all points, C++ and Unreal Engine will suffice for software and game development, I'd like to mention learning PHP as well for webmastering.
