I'm always excited to see my gamedev related Open Source work being used by others - the most recent case is Monster Wants Candy demo (a base for the tutorial) helping with a master thesis about cognitive processes!
A few days ago, on Tuesday September 6th, the W3C Games Community Group gathered to talk about the Open Web Games Directory we've discussed in the past during some of the previous meetups and TPAC sessions.
I was invited to be the very first guest of the newly launched Dev Spotlight series of interviews with the developers having their games listed on the Arcadia platform created and run by the OP Games team.
I'm honored to be listed among the fine folks of the GitHub Stars program, which gathers shining individuals from the world’s largest open source community, though I still think I got mistaken for someone else.
I was so happy to see the projects I was rooting for in the first Grant for the Web open Call for Proposals were accepted and announced.
The last couple of months were tough, to say the least. They forced some changes in the plan I had for gamedev-related projects in 2020. The good thing is, given the diversification of our activities around Enclave Games, it shouldn't be that bad, although still an unpleasant shift in focus.
This is big news: Enclave Games was awarded with the Grant for the Web, and we'll be focusing on Web Monetization in at least the next half a year. Read on if you're curious how it all happened.
May was a tough month, with some work done, although I hoped more will be accomplished by the end of it. Still, things moved forward a bit further, so overall it wasn't that bad.
April revolved around the Gamedev.js Jam 2020 that was held online between April 13th and 26th - submission time is over, and its voting phase will last until tomorrow, May 3rd.
Coil website just got its Explore page refreshed to help discover and support Web Monetized creators, which was announced via their newsletter. The Gaming section include a few interesting links.
