I haven't written a single line of code since the last game we've released more than two years ago, so I'm happy to report that in June I did join a game jam, and submitted an entry!
Monthly Report three-and-a-half weeks later than planned? Yup, if you mix handling js13kGames full time with being sick most of the month, then you end up with the chaos described below.
Even though I dropped a few talk opportunities to focus on Gamedev.js Survey and Jam preparations, I still ended up attending a bunch of events and even speaking at some of them.
The past year was a solid one for Enclave Games. Not perfect, but definitely good - we've focused on Web Monetization the first half of 2021, while experimenting with Decentralization in the background the past twelve months.
We've focused on completing the Grant for the Web project and publishing the final report through the first half of June, and spent the other half of the month catching up on the rest of the work.
Wait, what? Yes, you read that right: there's going to be a one-day Forest Cuties tournament where the main prize is 50 NEAR.
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.
This game's story started a couple of years ago on a wall above our daughter's bed as a cute poster, only to evolve into a physical card game, and then a mobile one that implemented Web Monetization's receipt verifier service, and even offered an NFT to the mix.
