At thePixel Press Spring Game Jam your child will enjoy the experience of creating games with Pixel Press Floors and competing in groups for a number of prizes for best games created, best players, and most creative. To learn more about Pixel Press click here to view our videos.

The event will take place at the Pixel Press office, with check in at 9:30a and the day will end at 4p. You are welcome to stay and participate with your child, however all participants parents wil be required to sign a permission slip and photo waiver when the child arrives. Children will not be allowed to leave the premesis while they are at the event.

Children who arrive late can still participate but will be excluded from the competition and awards, and if your child needs to leave early we will do our best to accomodate but they may be ineligble for any awards.

We will provide food and drink throughout the day, and every particpant will recieve a game jam t-shirt.
