Last month we've focused on doing one thing right - preparing and shipping the long overdue 130 packages with js13kGames 2022 swag: t-shirts, coasters, and stickers.
January was suppose to be a fresh start after not so successful 2022 (to say the least) - I can't say we did all what we wanted, since we didn't (flu season is still on), but we did some of that.
The first half of the year went rather ok, the second - not so good. From the current point of view it seems those were the worst twelve months since at least a couple of years, if not ever - various health issues of all our bunch made us fail to deliver multiple projects planned for 2022.
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!
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.
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.
We've spent January trying to catch up on things that were suppose to be finished last year already (mostly js13kGames-related), but got delayed by various reasons.
The past year was a solid one for Enclave Games. Not perfect, but definitely good - we've focused on Web Monetization the first half of 2021, while experimenting with Decentralization in the background the past twelve months.
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.
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.
