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!
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.
We're having both the Gamedev.js Survey 2022 and Gamedev.js Jam 2022 - first is already open, while the other starts next month.
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.
We've wrapped the second edition of the Gamedev.js Jam last week, so it's time to do a little summary of how it went, especially given it ended up being way bigger than initially planned.
Most of April revolved around the Gamedev.js Jam 2021 - it was suppose to be a short and simple competition, but I wouldn't be me if I haven't tossed in two new categories, challenges, dedicated experts, partners, and $20k worth of prizes.
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!
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.
