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.
July was mostly spent on preparing the js13kGames competition – sending hundreds of emails, acquiring sponsors, judges and prizes.
Wizard Quest is completed! I also flew to London for the Mozilla All Hands, and spent some time preparing the js13kGames 2016 competition.
I hate that game, literally. Almost four years ago I started working on it with BlackMoon Design, it was suppose to be the first serious HTML5 game from Enclave Games, but it ended up being a huge pain – here’s the story.
It was the first Mozilla Work Week happening outside of the USA, and it was in Europe – London, England to be exact. Interestingly enough it took place a week before BREXIT.
May was a relatively positive month even though I wasn’t able to finish any new game. I did a little bit of coding, writing and conference attending.
Originally planned for March, the new installment of the brave Captain Rogers in the form of a playable demo is finally here – better late than never.
It was a good month even though the gamedev work was highly disrupted by incorporating a new member into the team. She’s young, but I know she’ll be a great addition in the future.
As you probably noticed I’m trying to keep up building at least one game per month this year. It’s not that easy, but the game jams can help achieve the goal – that’s why I’ve decided to take part in Ludum Dare #35 last weekend.
