Summer Slow Jams: Full Summer Showcase

  • Vacasa (New Location) 850 Northwest 13th Avenue Portland, OR, 97209 United States (map)

Let's get together to celebrate and play games from each of this year’s Summer Slow Jams!
Free & All Ages

Everyone is welcome to come play awesome locally-made games and chat with their makers!
Games this year followed the themes of:

  • Arcade Games

  • 3-Button, 3-Color Games

  • Edutainment Games

Summer Slow Jam participants: Come show off your games!

  • Please RSVP via comment, direct message to a PIGSquad organizer, or by e-mailing You do not have to RSVP to attend, and we may have space for showcasers who do not RSVP.

  • Space is limited and will be reserved for developers who RSVP on a first-come, first-served basis, then offered to developers who did not RSVP. We ask that, when reaching out about showcasing a game, you consider showcasing only one of the games you made for the jams if you made multiple, though we understand that individual developers may be showcasing many games due to the collaborative nature of numerous Summer Slow Jams.

  • Developers are welcomed to polish their SSJ games before the showcase, but not required.

Note: We will be located in the same building and room as July’s Summer Slow Jams events: Vacasa’s NEW location (a block away from the old location). Please refer to address details on this post for clarification
