Play, Learn and Connect! 6:30-9pm at the Elliot Center, BarCamp
Come to a showcase of indie video games by local Portland developers. Games include entries from the 11th Annual Global Game Jam and by members of the Portland Indie Game Squad. This will also include a pre-release version of Johann Sebastian Joust, a graphic-less 8 player game using motion controllers,
and other games like PPPPPPPP.
Learn and Share at the Game Jam Discussion hosted by PIG Squad
This mini-talk and conversation looks at developers’ work flows. What are good strategies for getting past a simulation of producing a professional project within a strict deadline (essentially what a 48 hour Jam can amount to)? How are jams be utilized in other practices? Learn about why people jam and how it spurs us to innovate.

Mark-up their funding campaigns, jam with us on best practices for crowd-funding, and win some cool rewards.
