After announcing the Web Monetization category in the upcoming Gamedev.js Jam 2021, now it's time to reveal the second, Decentralized one, organized in partnership with Protocol Labs and NEAR Protocol!
March was a crazy month on so many levels - we were extremely busy, had health issues, unexpected problems, and couldn't work as much as we wanted. We didn't even have the time or energy to celebrate Enclave's birthday that happened March 10th, but I do hope April will be better.
We're happy to announce the Gamedev.js Jam 2021 that will run online between April 13th and 26th 2021 will have a Web Monetization category this year, with cash prizes and Coil memberships for the best entries.
The Mozilla Festival 2021 is slowly coming to an end, and so we decided to recall last year's MozFest Arcade experience and prepare a totally subjective list of five games that utilize Web Monetization API you can play right now and support its creators.
We're starting the countdown to Gamedev.js Jam 2021 - an online competition for HTML5 game developers, running for thirteen days between April 13th and 26th. It's the second edition after the Gamedev.js Jam 2020 hosted last year.
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.
