Make a game project with friends and community members in just over a week! Summer Slow Jams is a collection of game jam events happening once a month this summer, providing structure and networking opportunities for creatives in Portland.

Join us in the Performance jam opening event, where we'll reveal the jam's creative theme, help you network, generate ideas, and learn about our pals Show Show Lab. If you're interested in working with people from Show Show, there are lots of opportunities to get your game shown at creative stage events around town!

Start making a game on July 14th and finish up to share on stage at our closing event by July 28th.
Join the jam online via Game Jolt to upload and share your game!
