Lots of things happened in January: we've summarized 2023 and made plans for 2024, published Gamedev.js Survey 2023 results, I've prepared the first four weekly issues of the Phaser World newsletter after revival, W3C Games group had a meetup about generative AI, the NSHex Counter app got two armies (Merchants Guild and Partisans) added, and I published ten different news posts on NeuroshimaHex.pl.
December is traditionally rather slow, but we've managed to conduct (a shortened) Gamedev.js Survey, even including a warm-up week, so that's a second pretty decent month in a row.
As you might've imagined, April was 100% about Gamedev.js Jam 2023. Good news is we've finally launched Gamedev.js Shop with cool swag!
It's been almost a year since our Web Monetized HTML5 Game Development grant project was announced in July 2020, and even though we had quite significant delay of four extra months on top of original six, I'm really happy with how the project went for us.
Our Grant for the Web project was announced in the middle of July 2020 - it had a somewhat generic name Web Monetized HTML5 Game Development since it was actually a few (six to be exact) smaller projects revolving around monetizing web games: three Enclave Games creations, js13kGames competition, an eBook, and a Gamedev.js Survey.
