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.
This is big news: Enclave Games was awarded with the Grant for the Web, and we'll be focusing on Web Monetization in at least the next half a year. Read on if you're curious how it all happened.
I still don't know how exacly I ended up tech reviewing the book with C++ code in it, but this somehow happened, and I'm happy I was able to add another new 'first-time' item to my technical experience.
This month's report is almost three weeks late, but I had my reasons: it was very busy recently, mostly js13kGames, MozFest, and WebBR.
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.
I was invited to travel to Kraków and give a talk at the TechKlub meetup on April 4th - theme of this edition of the meetup was... games, obviously. I probably wouldn't write about it otherwise.
I'm happy to announce the book I was helping technically review is finally finished and available to be bought - HTML5 Games: Novice to Ninja witten by Earle Castledine and published by SitePoint.
September was a busy month, even more busy than August - you can tell by looking at how many posts were published between those two reports: exactly six.
