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.
So there was a week in Berlin that was fully packed with front-end events: RejectJS, CSSConf.eu and JSConf.eu. I was lucky enough to be invited to speak at the first one – it was a satellite event before the main JSConf.eu event. There was also a lot of parties around to integrate with the community.
It’s less than a month to the next edition of the first and the best HTML5 game development conference on the planet – onGameStart 2013. There’s also a contest where you can win one of the three tickets worth 79 Euro each!
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.
I had the pleasure of speaking at the Web-5 conference in Béziers on June 14th about Firefox OS and HTML5 games – here are my quick notes about that event. I really enjoyed it, spent few lovely days in sunny France and met a lot of interesting people!
The guys from Clay.io (supporters of the first js13kGames competition) have started their own compo for students that are (or want to be) also an HTML5 game developers. There’s over $10,000 in prizes, so it’s a good idea to check it out, learn making games and actually finish one.
The Few is an upcoming game from the famous Blackmoon Design – they’ve prepared graphic designs for onGameStart, Wizard Quest and many more. They’re now working on an impressive project – one will have a chance to lead the Royal Air Force pilots in this RTS game during the World War II in the Battle of Britain.
In about ten days the first and biggest HTML5 games conference will travel from Poland across the ocean and visit USA. The good news? Ticket price dropped to zero, null, nada. If you’re around New York on March 15th and love making HTML5 games it’s the best place to be. Come join us (I’ll be there), meet awesome people and have fun!
Last weekend was full of the game development goodness – I’ve organized Warsaw Game Jam, the first edition of the Global Game Jam. Thanks to our amazing sponsors – Mozilla and GitHub, we could provide cozy place with good Wi-Fi, food and drinks (mostly beer and pizza) for everybody during the whole weekend. It wasn’t only the Game Jam itself, but we were working hard for the Mozilla Game On competition and thinking about fulfilling One Game a Month at the same time. On sunday evening we even had a meet.js meetup with some guys from the Firefox OS team!
