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.
Two weeks ago we've added the Merchants Guild army to the NSHex Counter app, and now it's time to catch up and implement Partisans.
It's that time of the year again when Portal Games releases a new army pack for the Neuroshima Hex board game and we're updating the NSHex Counter app to include it - this time it's Merchants Guild.
The past year was difficult for us on many levels, but the last two months were a little bit optimistic. Let's look at the details of the twelve months that passed in Enclave Games, see exactly how 2023 went, and make some reasonable plans for 2024.
Announcing winners, sending prizes, collecting shipping details - with no surprise at all, October still mostly revolved around the js13kGames 2023 competition.
The first half, or even two thirds, of September's time went straight into js13kGames 2023. The rest of the month was spent on trying to catch up on all the other things.
We've focused on the Gamedev.js Jam 2023 preparations in March, but some cool unrelated things happened last month as well.
Another year - another new Neuroshima Hex army pack. This time it's Pirates, and so the NSHex Counter app that allows the board game fans to track the current state of their stack of tokens left was updated.
After printing and shipping js13kGames t-shirts with different design every year since 2012 we finally did something Enclave-themed - check out our first ever hoodie!
