Make games and help save lives through organ donation!

Pixel Arts presents the Guts for Glory Game Jam in association with Gaming For Social Good's first game summit!

In a 20-hour challenge, you will work with fellow game developers to create a game prototype for the purpose of furthering the goals of a Portland nonprofit organization!

We will be working with Donate Life Northwest for this game summit. Participating developers will be creating a game prototype dedicated to aiding the mission of this organ donor registry nonprofit, the goals of which are outlined in the immediate link! http://www.donatelifenw.org/content/what-we-do

General schedule: Friday, October 19th: 6pm-10pm (Team Formation and Brainstorming) Saturday, October 20th: 9am-5pm (Production) Sunday, October 21st: 9am-5pm (Production) Sunday, October 21st: 5pm-7pm (Postmortem)

Facilitated by Corvus Elrod, this Game Jam will be focused on creating a deliverable for Donate Life in the long run; the event will be set in a production environment, allowing developers to consider aspects of game development such as budgeting, client input, marketing, and their own quality of life on a day-to-day basis. That being said, production managers, marketers, and advertising agents are welcome to sign up as participants!

We have room for 45 participants and will not be counting RSVP's in other locations, though walk-ins are welcome if space permits.

Light breakfast and full lunch will be provided; provide restrictive dietary information on your registration.

Please also consider bringing $10 for a suggested donation to Pixel Arts!
