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.
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.
This month's report is almost three weeks late, but I had my reasons: it was very busy recently, mostly js13kGames, MozFest, and WebBR.
I was lucky enough to be asked by Loup Design handling the Grant for the Web fund for Coil to showcase Web Monetized games at the Mozilla Festival's arcade booth - we were showing both Enclave Games creations and js13kGames entries from the Web Monetization category, and tossed in a WebXR game as it's always fun to play VR games at such events.
It looks like the W3C workshop about Web games in Seattle was crucial for the future of Enclave Games - we're going to invest our time and efforts into exploring Web Monetization opportunities with Coil.
It's not that Gamedev.js workshop #1 was my debut in a role of the workshop lead - I did run one at Mozilla Festival in 2013 and the other at BrazilJS in 2015 - but it was the first one in Poland and at the same time the first one ever organized by me. I wanted to do it for the past few years already, but it's better late than never.
It's this time of the month again - let's see if Christmas got in the way of doing some cool gamedev stuff in December.
I spent November writing gamedev articles for MDN, demoing WebVR in London and realizing I finished a game some time ago already.
It was my second visit to MozFest - the first time was two years ago at MozFest 2013 and I was amazed by the specific festival atmosphere. That's why I decided to go this year too, but this time with a different session.
