About 90% of the time in April was spent on running Gamedev.js Jam 2022 with very little left for other things, so plans made a month ago are still valid for the one that already started.
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.
We're having both the Gamedev.js Survey 2022 and Gamedev.js Jam 2022 - first is already open, while the other starts next month.
February's TL;DR? Being famous for a day, having multiple design brainstorming sessions, starting client work, and still trying to catch up on our own delayed projects.
We've spent January trying to catch up on things that were suppose to be finished last year already (mostly js13kGames-related), but got delayed by various reasons.
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.
Last month was a weird one: we had a bunch of delays with our work and ultimately weren't able to finish planned tasks in time, got some bad news when we were counting on the good ones, but also got the awesome news faster than expected right after.
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.
