All Ages Game Making Workshop

Have you ever wanted to learn more about what goes into creating games? Join PIGSquad and our partners at Pixel Arts and find out! Pixel Arts is dedicated to open sourcing social transformation through games. They provide maker-based learning in games that support the building blocks of creative innovation: play, make and design.

Will Lewis will be teaching attendees how to use Scratch to learn the beginnings of computer programming and games. Some computers will be available and are first-come-first-served. Feel free to bring your own computer to follow along, but download the offline version of Scratch first, as we will not have access to internet.

Horror Game Marathon


We're ready for Halloween... are you? Join us to witness the scariest experiences in gaming today...
Note: Some games are rated M for Mature!

Virtual Reality Lounge


Play games and experiences in some of the most immersive technology to date with Vive, PlayStation VR, Cardboard, and more! Virtual reality companies recommend against use by children under 12 years of age.

PIGSquad at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo 2018 is made possible by PRGE and our Patreon supporters! Thanks so much for your support!
