January was full of various activities: from publishing the Yearly Report, through two js13kGames videos to watch, and Enclave Phaser Template being updated to 3.50, to the Global Game Jam 2021 invitation. And most of all, the work on the new js13kGames website moved forward significantly!
Since the latest Phaser release was the biggest one ever (not counting the major versions), I decided to give the Enclave Phaser Template an update as well.
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.
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.
September was (surprise, surprise) full into js13kGames, with me trying to catch up on everything else in the meantime, but with not much luck.
The NSHex Counter app launched last year, which serves Neuroshima Hex fans with the ability to keep track of the tiles used by opponents, got its first update with the newest army - Troglodytes.
