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.
As you might've imagined, April was 100% about Gamedev.js Jam 2023. Good news is we've finally launched Gamedev.js Shop with cool swag!
We've focused on the Gamedev.js Jam 2023 preparations in March, but some cool unrelated things happened last month as well.
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.
Monthly Report three-and-a-half weeks later than planned? Yup, if you mix handling js13kGames full time with being sick most of the month, then you end up with the chaos described below.
It's that time of the year again - fully focusing on the js13kGames preparations. This didn't stop me from giving a talk at an in person event first time since the pandemic started two and a half years ago.
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.
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.
