The last couple of months were tough, to say the least. They forced some changes in the plan I had for gamedev-related projects in 2020. The good thing is, given the diversification of our activities around Enclave Games, it shouldn't be that bad, although still an unpleasant shift in focus.
The first edition of the online Gamedev.js Jam ended about a week ago, so it's time for a recap. Long story short: it went well, even better than I expected!
April revolved around the Gamedev.js Jam 2020 that was held online between April 13th and 26th - submission time is over, and its voting phase will last until tomorrow, May 3rd.
Something I have planned for a few years already finally got launched. Because of the global Covid-19 situation, I got the final motivational push to actually do it this year, but interestingly enough, it also made the start date delayed by a month or two.
This is not going to be a surprise if I say we were affected by Covid-19 as well. It's not that bad as many other industries, but our daughter Kasia stays home and Ewa is taking care of schooling, so she don't have much time for anything else.
Even though 2020 is a leap year and February had 29 days instead of 28, it was rather slow and quiet month.
A little bit later than usual, but here's the quick report from our latest Gamedev.js Warsaw meetup #15 that happened last month, on Tuesday February 11th 2020.
First month of the year was rather slow when it comes to the number of completed Enclave Games related tasks, mainly because I was sick most of the time. There's still a few interesting things to mention though.
Tradition of laughing while comparing what I wanted to do with Enclave Games in a given year versus what actually happened continues. Let's recap the past year and prepare some plans for the upcoming one that probably won't happen anyway.
