Wondering where to find passionate people working on games together? Trying to find collaborators and begin that project you’ve been dreaming of?
Look no further than our own backyard in the Silicon Forrest. The Portland Indie Game Squad, or PIGSquad, is an open group dedicated to nurturing a supportive, welcoming community of diverse independent game makers.
Every month, they host a general meeting where you can meet like-minded enthusiasts, chat about recent game news and share your current projects and ideas. They also host a wide variety of local events including board game nights, game jams and exhibitions for local developers like OMSI After Dark.
What else do they do? How about game learning with a monthly Unity 3D interest group and monthly Art/Code nights. They’re a creative bunch and welcoming to all. As you can expect from a home grown Portland group, PIGSquad is geeky, fun, generous, friendly, quirky and diverse.
Our own Will Lewis is the founder of PIGSquad, and they have generously supported Pixel Arts Game Education at a number of events. Give Will a shout out and see what can happen!
