Just before Christmas the Gamedev.js Weekly's email was used as the sender address to deliver some ridiculous amounts of random spam to folks who weren't even subscribed to the actual newsletter - I've received hundreds of hateful replies to my inbox on December 24th.
December was on a similar level to the previous couple of months, so not much has been done even though attempts were made.
After printing and shipping js13kGames t-shirts with different design every year since 2012 we finally did something Enclave-themed - check out our first ever hoodie!
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.
We're having both the Gamedev.js Survey 2022 and Gamedev.js Jam 2022 - first is already open, while the other starts next month.
February's TL;DR? Being famous for a day, having multiple design brainstorming sessions, starting client work, and still trying to catch up on our own delayed projects.
