Let's make 3-Button, 3-Color Games!

The Creative Theme for this jam is "One More Time!"

Join us at our Opening Event on July 15th and Closing Showcase on July 22nd in Portland, OR!

A word on 3-Button, 3-Color Games:

  • Make a game that limits your creative endeavors in threes! Try making a videogame that only takes advantage of 3 inputs and a limited, 3-color palette. If you're making a tabletop game, limit yourself to three available actions, card types, or board pieces. If you're making a live action game, limit your players to three choices or three behaviors. Restrict yourself as a game maker and see what comes of it!

Summer Slow Jams:

Each summer, game makers get together to make a game project with friends and community members in just over a week! Summer Slow Jams is a collection of game jam events happening once a month this summer, providing structure and networking opportunities for creatives in Portland and remote participants. Participate in a jam to finish a creative project, learn new things, meet new people, and share your work!

Creative themes are delivered during each kick off event then shared online, and developers are able to showcase their game jam projects at each closing event in Portland, OR. In between the dates of the kick off and closing showcase, you are encouraged to meet up with others at public places or using online channels to complete a game over whatever in-jam time period you see fit: take it slow if you need!
