The Portland Indie Game Squad will be hosting its fourth local Game Jam this coming August 25th at the East Portland Eagles Lodge! Participants will be challenged to make a game within an 18-hour period, following a theme delivered at the beginning of the Jam!
The schedule is as follows:
August 25th 7am - Lodge will open for Jammers.
August 25th 8am - Jam will begin.
August 25th 6pm - The Lodge will be closed to Jammers.
August 25th 7pm - Jammers are welcome to join others at 1718 SW 16th Ave., Portland, Oregon 97201 to continue work on their games, or Jam at home until 11pm.
August 25th 11pm - The 1718 house will be closed to Jammers.
August 26th 7am - Eagle's Lodge will reopen for Jammers.
August 26th 12pm - Jam ends.
The space we have available to us allows for an approximate 18-hour Jam. Because of this limited amount of time and Jammers' responsibility for their own equipment/supplies, it is strongly recommended that teams construct a board/card game, though any medium of game is allowed as long as it follows the prompt delivered at the beginning of the 18-hour period.
A majority of teams will be constructed beforehand, though jammers may participate individually, form a team the night of, or join an existing team. Jammers are responsible for their own supplies/equipment, food, safety, and transportation. There are numerous restaurants located in the area.
To assist in creating Jam teams, please post below with your preferred game development skillset or team interests if you plan on participating and do not already have a team formed. Please RSVP regardless; we have room for 60 jammers.
Big thanks to Jeffrey Sens, Sasha Orme, and the East Portland Eagles Lodge for their efforts and sponsorship! Also feel free to join PIGSquad for the Pwning Cancer game tournament and free play session after the Jam on Sunday in conjunction with the Hawthorne Street Fair!
