I'm 17, I turn 18 Sep.6th , and I Just graduated High school. My main goal is to develop games, but I also want to do art. I do not know how to get into the industry. I know code, barely, and I'm pretty good with art. I did some research, and a lot of sites tell me that I should play a lot of game's, volunteer for Beta's and attend Conventions and Trade Events. Those sound fun to do, but I don't really see how It can get me into the game industry. At home, Ive just been spending my days studying random topics about the world. I also started a free Japanese course on Busuu. I decided that since I'm trying to get into the Game Industry, I should keep all my character sheets and game ideas in separate folders. I am going to the NAVY most likely this year. I figured that this could help me somehow, I can use what I learn to get into the game industry, but I'm not entirely sure if it will actually help. I just need guidance, I'm sure you guys probably get these types of questions a lot, but I really need to know because I don't know what to do.
