We recently hosted a game jam as part of the grant we received from Grant for the Web. The game jam was hosted on itch.io and ran the entire month of November. The goal of the game jam was to create a game which uses Web Monetization in interesting ways and incorporates the theme "Secrets" into the game design. You can read more about the game jam here:

This is amazing Bjorn! I didn't know about this at all... but I love that it happened and I'd definitely be interested in participating in any challenges in the future! I'm following you here now so hopefully you'll let us know.
