Last week I had a great opportunity to meet with many folks from various companies at the W3C workshop on Web games which was held in Microsoft's office in Redmond to discuss the future of Web game development.
Google Campus in Warsaw was the place I visited a few times recently, and every single time with a slightly different role and approach, although all of them related to game development.
Another month passed by - I've continued my WebVR gamedev activities: writing, talking and demoing. There's still some js13kGames work to be done too.
Just like a year ago, I visited Poznań to give a gamedev talk. This time, instead of Firefox OS, I presented about WebVR.
After my talk at the RejectJS conference about Firefox OS and HTML5 games in which I showed Captain Rogers being ported to the Mozilla mobile operating system I thought I'll spend the rest of the month being an attendee at onGameStart and chill out with my friends. But in the meantime there was another event on the way.
It's less than a month to the next edition of the first and the best HTML5 game development conference on the planet - onGameStart 2013. There's also a contest where you can win one of the three tickets worth 79 Euro each!
The Few is an upcoming game from the famous Blackmoon Design - they've prepared graphic designs for onGameStart, Wizard Quest and many more. They're now working on an impressive project - one will have a chance to lead the Royal Air Force pilots in this RTS game during the World War II in the Battle of Britain.
In about ten days the first and biggest HTML5 games conference will travel from Poland across the ocean and visit USA. The good news? Ticket price dropped to zero, null, nada. If you're around New York on March 15th and love making HTML5 games it's the best place to be. Come join us (I'll be there), meet awesome people and have fun!
Website of the onGameStart US conference is online and it's awesome. Yet again you can play your way through all the information, for example meet the speakers in the game. Remember to visit the site using WebGL-enabled browser to enjoy the full potential of the technology.
The video of my talk from the onGameStart 2012 conference about the js13kGames competition is already online, so you can watch it if you like. I'm still a newbie when it comes to public speaking, but I'm trying as much as I can, so please be forgiving. Now, go check it out!
