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.
Another month entirely focused on the js13kGames competition.
It's that time of the year again - preparations to the js13kGames competition are in full swing. It runs yearly since 2012, so this edition is actually the tenth.
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.
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.
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've wrapped the second edition of the Gamedev.js Jam last week, so it's time to do a little summary of how it went, especially given it ended up being way bigger than initially planned.
Most of April revolved around the Gamedev.js Jam 2021 - it was suppose to be a short and simple competition, but I wouldn't be me if I haven't tossed in two new categories, challenges, dedicated experts, partners, and $20k worth of prizes.
