Forming Teams & Community Engagement:

PIGSquad is typically an in-person community based in Portland, Oregon, but we are going totally remote with this jam in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. We encourage anyone online to participate in the jam and form teams with each other regardless of where they are located.


  • Jam from home!
  • All participants, in person or remote, must follow PIGSquad's Code of Conduct.
  • We encourage you to jam with new people or on a team, but it is not required. We will be providing resources for team forming at the jam kickoff and throughout the jam timeline.
  • You may use pre-existing tools to make games, but please start your jam at the official jam start date after the theme is revealed.
  • Jammers retain full ownership of the games they make during the jam.
  • Late submissions or submission updates can be accepted - just get in touch with an organizer.

We are hosting this remote game jam in place of our annual pub crawl and our usual April Drink 'n Draw.
