February was all about working on the remaining Grant for the Web program grant projects - we've already got the deadline extended, so we have to finish our work as soon as possible.
We're conducting a Survey as part of the Gamedev.js initiative to learn about the current state of the HTML5 Game Development in 2021 - where the developers work, what tools do they use, how much do they earn, and much more.
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.
December was quite intense, especially from the tech speaking and networking point of view - I was actively testing my new audio/video setup.
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.
October was quite an active month: handling js13kGames, giving a talk at an online meetup, and writing lots of blog posts.
We're excited to announce that we were awarded a grant from the Grant for the Web program to focus on exploring Web Monetization within indie game development!
