The summary for November is not so good: fightnig with clients to get the money for my work, doing lots of unrelated stuff, fixing bugs, low interest of publishers in buying licenses for our games, no time for Wizard Quest development. At the beginning of 2015 I will have to revise my plans for the future.
After the successful visit at the ZTG Gamedev Convention I travelled to Budapest in Hungary to give two talks in one day at the Hungarian Web Conference. I was welcomed by the local community and enjoyed my time there.
The whole month was focused on the client work, closing the js13kGames competition and speaking at the conferences. It was a tough month – a lot of work and bug fixing, but nothing solid to show, almost no earnings and there are still so many things left to do.
I was invited to the ZTG conference a year ago, but Mozilla Festival event was already booked for the same date, so I said I'll try to visit them next year. I wasn't sure whether I'll be going to MozFest again this year, but I ended up traveling to Poznań instead of London.
The whole month passed so quickly, almost everything revolved around the js13kGames competition with which I still have a lot to do – print and ship the t-shirts, manage all the prizes etc. Here’s the detailed break-down of my work during September:
Most of the August activities revolved around the js13kGames competition. There was so much to be done and I’m not fully happy with the results. I didn’t have time to complete all of the plans I had, but overall I’m amazed by the growing community around the compo.
The js13kGames competition has started and with only a small delay I was able to finish Triskaidekaphobia, the game that promotes the competition. Triskaidekaphobia means the fear of the number thirteen, as for me it’s the perfect title for the game.
It’s time for the next Monthly Report, this time for July. Without any delays, let’s see what happened during that month.
The story behind Full Immersion is way shorter than those about Monser Wants Candy and Hungry Fridge, but I think it’s still worth writing a word or two.
