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.
September was quite intense when it comes to js13kGames, especially the first half of the month. It wasn't only about the competition though: I've updated an app, attended two meetups, and submitted a lenghty CFP.
The NSHex Counter app that launched two years ago, which serves Neuroshima Hex board game fans with the ability to keep track of the tiles used by them and the opponent, got its second update with the newest army - Beasts.
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.
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.
The beginning of May was all about the Gamedev.js Jam 2021 results, while during the rest of the month we were wrapping our already-too-many-times-delayed Grant for the Web grant work, which included NSHex Roulette, Body Guard, and Forest Cuties.
We're big fans of the physical board game Neuroshima Hex, and NSHex Roulette is a digital expansion to that game. We are offering a unique experience to all the fans, and it's free thanks to implementing the Web Monetization API as part of the Grant for the Web program.
February was all about working on the remaining Grant for the Web program grant projects - we've already got the deadline extended, so we have to finish our work as soon as possible.
Even though 2020 was overall a terrible year, we are really happy with how it turned out for us, given we received a grant from the Grant for the Web program to work on our projects.
