More than a week ago I was speaking at the Game Industry Conference that was held during the Poznań Game Arena on October 5-8th 2017 in Poznań, Poland.
I was invited by the Mozilla's Developer Relations team to help with their presence at the Game Developers Conference and related events happening in San Francisco.
We have 127 success stories this year - that's the number of entries submitted in 2016. Finishing a game is not an easy task, even more with given constraints of size and time, that's why I appreciate every single one submitted for the js13kGames competition.
It's the fifth edition of the yearly, month-long online competition for HTML5 game developers, and I hope it will keep the tradition of being bigger and better than the previous ones.
The next, fourth edition of the js13kGames competition just started - you have a whole month to create an HTML5 game in only 13 kilobytes.
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.
As you may already figured out I'm lately more into HTML5 mobile games rather than front-end development. That's why Enclave Games was born - it is an Indie Game Development studio focused on mobile HTML5 games. It's one-man-army for now, I'll focus on mobile HTML5 games for some time and see what happens.
During the onGameStart 2012 conference in Warsaw this September I've met Robert Podgórski, the boss of the BlackMoon Design studio specialized in the pixel art. They are awesome and we figured out that we can try and make a simple HTML5 game to see if the collaboration will be successful. That is how the Wizard Quest HTML5 game idea was born.
The second edition of the first ever fully HTML5 games conference - onGameStart - has just ended. It was a great experience and I'm happy I was part of it. Thanks to Michał I had the chance to speak about the js13kGames competition which ended just a few days ago.
It's official and it's already waiting for you to come along and play! The new website for a second edition of the first ever and definitely the best HTML5 games conference in the world is online. What's so special about it? Well, the whole website is... a game!
