October was full of js13kGames tasks with a bunch of unplanned distractions, but we've managed to release a new Halloween level in Flood Escape, so it wasn't that bad eventually.
The Flood Escape game was released in June 2017, with the most recent Winter level being added in January 2020, so now it's high time to have a new one - Halloween!
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.
The js13kGames 2022 competition is at full swing, and all the time and efforts are put into it right now.
It's that time of the year again - fully focusing on the js13kGames preparations. This didn't stop me from giving a talk at an in person event first time since the pandemic started two and a half years ago.
Last month marked the transition between wrapping up Gamedev.js Jam 2022 and beginning the serious preparations to js13kGames 2022, with a short visit to Amsterdam in the middle.
Work on both the Gamedev.js Jam and Gamedev.js Survey took most of May - with Jam winners being announced in the first week, Survey report published in the third week, and Jam prizes being distributed to the winners throughout the rest of the month.
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.
