Eugene is about a two and a half hour drive from where I live. The Indie Games Con is put up by GarageGames which is based out of Eugene. They do a LOT of independant game development work/publishing. Their engine (Torque) is licensable for rather cheap. It was the game engine used to develop Tribes 2.

As far as I know the history of it, GarageGames is a company that actually group out of the closing of the game development studio Dynamix, which was based out of Eugene also I believe. At least, I believe that is what happened.

The only other *real* game development studio that I can think of in the Oregon area is Sony Bend, which (obviously) is a game development studio for Sony. I think they may have been the ones behind one of the latest Syphon Filter games.
