Birthday Cake Portland. Within April 2013, with the help of one, 216 people, the team in SleepNinja Games surpassed their own $15, 000 Kickstarter objective for the “Monsters Ate The Birthday Cake” game. It had been the Portland-based indie video game studio's first game. The actual group raised $26, 096. But that was just the begin. The campaign brought the little studio to the attention associated with cable network Cartoon System. The network wanted to distribute the game.
Birthday Cake Portland. The studio, that counts three full-timers, is actually part of a growing number of indie online game developers setting up shop within Portland. As the community has exploded, members are organizing as well as charting a path to making a vibrant ecosystem. How they plan to do this is the subject of the week’s PBJ cover tale.
