We are happy to announce that we have been awarded a grant from Grant for the Web to explore the use of Web Monetization in games.
Grant for the Web is a fund to boost open, fair, and inclusive standards and innovation in Web Monetization. It is backed by Coil, Mozilla and Creative Commons.
The Defold Foundation will use the grant to integrate, promote and support the use of Web Monetization in web games created using Defold. We will integrate Web Monetization through the Defold plugin system, promote it through examples and tutorials and host a game jam focused on Web Monetization.
The Web Monetization game jam, which will be hosted later this year, will have cash prizes, a jury consisting of well known names from the games industry and it will be open to all game developers and game engines.
