It’s insane how the time flies. I recently started sending out Gamedev.js Weekly newsletter to fellow game devs, and now it looks like “recently” was almost two years ago!
I hope you enjoyed reading the newsletter so far. To celebrate 100th issue I’m giving away a special package with two unique js13kGames t-shirts.
To win it send me an email to email@example.com with the title #100 and the answer to this question:
Why have you subscribed to the Gamedev.js Weekly newsletter?
Be creative! You have a week, the winner will be announced as an update to this blog post on Friday December 11th. The best, most original answer will win - good luck and have fun!
It was great to see so many of you sent in your answers to the question above. It was hard to pick the best one, so I decided to give away two sets of t-shirts. The first one is for Adrián Arroyo Calle:
Because my sectarian leader forced me to study the best game that God has ever created in order to program it here. It was LIFE.
The second one for Robb:
Above all, there is still a lot of work to do and lines of code to write for me. I’m hoping to get opportunity to high-five with you one day and share some ideas, and of course thank you personally. Perhaps during next gaming fair or game jam. Keep on working, I can’t wait seeing next newsletter! Make awesome work helping former devs with learning how to make their dreams come true!
Congratulations! I also wanted to mention two other answers that make me feel the newsletter have a purpose and is doing quite fine:
I subscribed to the Gamedev.js Weekly newsletter because, even though I don’t make any games, I do a lot of work on the web, and I find the techniques fascinating and often relevant to the stuff I am doing. We all need to write fast code, and iterate, and everyone wants to make stuff fun, right?
I don’t really follow newsletters, and to be honest, I have no idea when or why I followed this one. However I’m genuinely glad I did. It’s my portal into JS/HTML5 news, and every few weeks I always come across an article that makes me drop everything and spend a weekend just trying stuff out.
The first one was from Blake Winton and the second one from K. Lemet - thanks guys!
Ps. The newsletter is open for advert opportunities, and you can also help me keep it going for at least the next 100 issues by sending a donation, thank you!
