Welcome to the Portland Indie Game Squad! We are a game development and enthusiast community located in Portland, OR, dedicated to providing the area with game related events, networking opportunities, resources, and fun!

Follow us on Twitter and join up on our Facebook page to get connected to our great game developer group, and feel free to direct any questions to pigsquad at gmail dot com! Just a heads up – we'll be updating our web presence very shortly; these forums are not very active and we will be moving into new methods of displaying events, inviting you to events, and communicating via a forum! Until then, our Facebook group is the best forum to use.

We now also have a funding project on Patreon, helping us reach community goals and thanking patrons with cool rewards!
