After the Warsaw Game Jam 2013

Last weekend was full of the game development goodness - I've organized Warsaw Game Jam, the first edition of the Global Game Jam. Thanks to our amazing sponsors - Mozilla and GitHub, we could provide cozy place with good Wi-Fi, food and drinks (mostly beer and pizza) for everybody during the whole weekend. It wasn't only the Game Jam itself, but we were working hard for the Mozilla Game On competition and thinking about fulfilling One Game a Month at the same time. On sunday evening we even had a meet.js meetup with some guys from the Firefox OS team!

Enclave Games - new HTML5 Game Development Studio

After the few years of doing HTML5 game development as a hobby it's time to go half-official. Half, because it's not a company (yet), but I want to start building the brand. There is only a splash screen on the official page, but I hope it will change in time. The first Enclave Games' game will be the Wizard Quest created with an awesome help from BlackMoon Design.
