    Ages.

    You will get bored and give up for large periods of time continuously.

    I'd say between 500 and 1000 hours at least to make a good job of it.

    i will try and create a simple game next year. dont expect it anytime before jul 2004. that will be the minimum time. the game, might even come at 2005.

    i will be trying to create a game based on "Arcade Cricket" by Mat Clark. this game wont come anytime before mid 2005.

    creating a stats based game is too boring and u also tend to get bored playing it.
