Another bi-monthly online meetup of the W3C Games Community Group happened a few days ago, on April 15th, and this time two main presentation topics revolved around Unity and WebCodecs.
The ongoing pandemic and the end of the Mozilla Tech Speakers program accelerated my shift in focus towards more writing and coding, but this didn't last for too long.
I was so happy to see the projects I was rooting for in the first Grant for the Web open Call for Proposals were accepted and announced.
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.
