Announcing winners, sending prizes, collecting shipping details - with no surprise at all, October still mostly revolved around the js13kGames 2023 competition.
I haven't written a single line of code since the last game we've released more than two years ago, so I'm happy to report that in June I did join a game jam, and submitted an entry!
May still mostly revolved around Gamedev.js Jam 2023 - from preparing and announcing the overall winners and results of all the challenges, to sending all the prizes.
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.
