Jam Site Description: 

Event runs Jan 25-27.

Our site is partnering with the Oregon Asian Celebration, Feb 16-17! IGDA: Eugene will be showcasing local games at the Asian Celebration in a popup called Bitforest Arcade. Since this is the year of the pig, we'll be featuring games created at GGJ2019 that feature pigs, celebrations of Asian heritage, and nods to the film Spirited Away! More info on Oregon Asian Celebration here: http://asiancelebration.org/

Participants will receive a badge via badgr.io that links to their finished game project! Use these badges to boost your portfolio, show off, and have a handy record of your game jam projects.

The studio is always locked, so entry is only possible by getting the attention of someone in the lobby or messaging an admin who is on-site through Discord, Slack, Facebook messenger, etc.

All game jam activities need to stay on the ground floor, with at least one Pipeworks employee present.

Stay as late/early as you like, but please arrange to sleep off-site.

Parking is free downtown on the weekends in parking garages.

This site has WiFi access only. If you're bringing a desktop computer, you will need a WiFi dongle.
