Happy 5-Year / Site Re-Launch / Patreon Re-Launch Everybody!
With the re-launch of our Patreon page, the Portland Indie Game Squad will be able to continue providing better events, resources, and networking opportunities for game makers and enthusiasts in Portland! We've reached 3 new goals for providing stickers/cards for members to spread the good word, we'll be able to create more signage to boost our showcase presence at expos, and we're getting a resources page on our new website to support devs when they aren't able to hang out with us in person!

And what a weekend... On Sunday the 10th, we welcomed 210 attendees to a great selection of 20 games from our community's current and past projects for our 5-year anniversary! In addition to announcing our new nonprofit board and officers, we hosted 12 tournaments and 12 raffles, making for 24 awesome prizes from our sponsors: Cartoon Network, Intel, Oculus, Razer, and the Northwest Animation Festival. This was an amazing way to celebrate how far we've come and mark a new standard for moving forward via fundraising!


We'll be finalizing our first month of the new Patreon with a streaming marathon, playing indie games from in and outside of our community while welcoming special guests and calling for more patronage :3 Put it in your calendar and come say hi!


We also started a newsletter so you can keep up on our event notifications - sign up to stay informed on what's going on!


See you all next time! Check out our new events page to see all that's going on this month in Portland game making!
