Event Description

*EDIT* - For those of you who are remotely participating, post in this thread or tweet at @PIGSquad with the #mayhemjam and #pigjam tags asking for the prompt, and I'll give it to you!

The Portland Indie Game Squad will be hosting its third local Game Jam this coming May 25th at the Art Institute of Portland!

We will be starting up at 7pm that Friday evening upon delivery of a game prompt, and our space will be available to us through the evening of Sunday the 27th. A majority of teams will be constructed beforehand, though jammers may participate individually, form a team the night of, or join an existing team.

Some equipment will be provided, including computers w/Unity, UDK, Adobe Suite, Maya/Max, and Office Suite. Jammers will be responsible for providing their own bedding (should they choose to spend the entirety of the weekend in our workspace), food, and additional equipment. Bringing food in the spirit of a potluck is appreciated (and please post below if you happen to plan on bringing a cooler).

To assist in creating Jam teams, please post below with your preferred game development skillset if you plan on participating and do not already have a team formed. Please RSVP regardless; we have room for 50 jammers.

Big thanks to Keld Bangsberg, John Wilkes, and the Art Institute of Portland for their efforts and sponsorship!

Welp I'll be out of town. Though to be fair I wouldn't have made it to it anyway this month.

Hey everybody. I'm a game audio guy. I both compose and do sound effects.

I might be able to show up on Sunday but I work Friday and Saturday.  I still plan on prototyping something, however.

Aighty, the most-asked question so far regards board/card games, to which the answer is, "Yes, any type of game is allowed, be it card, board, physical, video, mind.... etc."

So yeah! As I mention above, post your skillset if you don't currently have a team and want to work with one, and be sure to RSVP regardless!

I would love to try to make a board game or some sort of physical game.

If anyone is intersted say so.

Otherwise I am a programmer who would have fun making a game in any language :D

I'm a game/level designer, I'm a jack of all trades in the biz but my strongest skills are design and user experience. I would love to make some kind of browser/2d game.

Hey everyone. I'm a music composer, and I can also do sound design/sfx as well. www.soundcloud.com/nickdolanmusic.

I am down to be doing some game music as well as sound effects.

Also, regarding those board games – please try to bring most of your own supplies. I'll provide some paper, but I can't bring handfuls of scissors/marker/whatever else!
