December is usually slower than previous months, and even though we tried working as usual, our daughter decided to break a record for the number of sick days she can have in a month, staying most of December away from kindergarten, which obviously didn't help with our productivity.
Last month was a weird one: we had a bunch of delays with our work and ultimately weren't able to finish planned tasks in time, got some bad news when we were counting on the good ones, but also got the awesome news faster than expected right after.
At the beginning of October we've announced the winners of the js13kGames 2021 competition during the online Awards Ceremony, and were steadily sending prizes and preparing the swag through the rest of the month.
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.
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.
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.
