What we're about
Bitforest is the home of Eugene Area Game Developers. Whether you are a student, indie, or professional, you have an open invitation to our welcoming community. We are people who motivated by -- and passionate about -- creating digital games.
Developers in the region were meeting on an ad hoc basis for several years, but in 2014 we kicked it up a notch and opened the doors to anyone interested in making games. You can (and should!) join us on our Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/eugenegamedevs/) and sign up at our official website (http://www.bitforest.co) (though it is a work in progress).
Each month, we have a First Wednesday Game Dev Dinner at Rogue, which is a social event where devs can talk shop, and one or two Art // Code nights, where folks can work on their projects in the company of others, or learn something new from a presenter.
We always host a Ludum Dare (http://www.ludumdare.com) event, which is three times a year, and a Global Game Jam (http://globalgamejam.org/) event, which happens in January.
Finally, we're the people who put together Epic Oregon Game Jam (http://www.epicoregongamejam.com) in the spring, and Indie Game Con (http://www.indiegamecon.com) in the fall.
Please contact any of the organizers if you have questions. Thanks!
