All kind time of day. In my region in which I live is rather problematic to find and assemble a team of video game developers, I myself am a game designer and an artist, I turned to one of the only companies in my region involved in the development of mobile applications (Not games). Luckily, they responded, but said they were not engaged in earlier games, some of the companies have agreed to help me when I showed them the small trailer concept of your game. Want to know how difficult will it be for the programmers do not write code for the game?

Write code in JavaScript and many other languages. C# is not present. Basically it is the programmers WEB.
If you have the same programmers, please answer, it is problematic whether it would be for You to write the code?

Not to say that it would be straight difficult, but it absolutely another expertise.

To switch to another examination, by experienced developers, in my experience, normal-quality work will take a minimum of 3 months.

A couple of tips that may be helpful:
- if guys, of course, will offer a more direct solution, then approach it very carefully and, preferably, go to a meeting, if the decision is to solve the same logic

- if you have the opportunity to connect, at least remotely, one specialist with expertise in game dev-e, which will help you and the children, this will greatly simplify your developer life. You need it, increasingly, as a consultant, he should already be "beaten track". Ideal - if he could Tim-lidity

- divide the entire scope of work into small parts and develop from the General to the private

- in progress tasks "cut corners" and put the primary target for the MVP. After that, all the angles, "to lick". If you do not have even the MVP, then you have nothing to be MVP - would have something to go and do the following steps

Not difficult depends on the actual qualifications of the developer.

Let them write in JavaScript.

There are 100500 ready frameworks, you can even make a browser game.

Note the MVP - this abbreviation in the economy means minimum valuable product - create prototypes as often as possible. You can even start with a functional prototype - the team will have an understanding of the implementation.

Looking for a simple solution, put a small task, then we will succeed.

Game development is still very far from the typical vibratable although it is possible to make a game using js developers will have a lot to finish my studies. Just like there is a little crooked wrote three months will take.

Find the developer remotely. It all depends on what game, some gameplay programming: mobile hack and web developers will be able to do. But if something harder, then they will cry and You have different objectives of the plan and difficulties happen in game development.

Are you sure You want to "write" code? If You have a concept of the game, then maybe you should take on the role of the team leader and lead other programmers?
As for js, it is possible to successfully write scripts in unity. For the development of the engine is quite suitable lessons off site with educational projects. They are, however, performed with the use of C#, but I think for You it will be important to see the logic, and languages - it is interchangeable.

Started with php + js primitive (sites). Then released php + actionscript 3 (the game), then c# (game in flash and unity), then a little mobile apps (objective c), after he returned to the world of js, who at that time experienced significant changes (es6, webpack, react, vue...). Not difficult, though in my case, love to write is sites and games.
