Hello to the users of the unreal engine forums.

As a precursor I have to say that I don’t have any kind of experience in game development. I mainly play the games that others develop. Though I have to say that I have some sort of technical undestanding. I use CAD software to design mechanical parts and program CNC machines in order to create those parts.
I have some ideas of my own and would like to give them a shot. I mainly like multiplayer games with roleplaying and strategic concepts.
My main idea is to create a turn based strategy game in the kin of 4x games like civilization. But with a focus on deceit. Like you would expect from games like secret hitler.

I would like to know from you people from where you started into game development and maybe what kind of project you are working on (I have seen that there is a forum for that and I will look into it).
