Kongregate Offices

So I was just in Portland, and I discovered where Kongregate’s Portland/Developer office is! It was pretty awkward though, mostly because I’m assuming it’s a private office. It’s in a building that’s unmarked unless you go in and look at the list. Then you can dial a number and they ring you in.

I wasn’t quite sure what to say, especially because they didn’t know I was going to show up, and I doubt they accept visitors anyway. xD
It was still cool to see that a Kongregate office is so close.

Anyway, have any of you ever seen the San Fransisco or Portland office?
I’m sure they’re private, but I wonder if they’d ever mind if someone brought them donuts and visited them for a few minutes.

That’s cool. I’ve seen pictures of the San Francisco office.

I think they do accept visitors as long as you contact them ahead of time.

That’s the old office, they have moved since then.

I suppose their Portland office is private because it is Portland. xD
There are a lot of… interesting people around that Chinatown area.

It’s always fun when players visit our office. They come in expecting Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, only to be greeted with boring people in a normal office. They exude so much disappointment that people on other floors must sense it.

Ahaha I can see that happening.
Still, I think it would be pretty cool to meet the people who make the site run.

On a slightly-related note, I totally embarrassed myself today.
Some guy named Pete answered when I rang in, and I realized I had no idea what to say.
Of course they had no idea who I was or why I was there, so… yeah. xD

The Portland office is where a lot of the developers/programmers work, and as long as you let them know ahead of time, there shouldn’t be any problem poking around!

As for MadJedi’s pic, that is indeed the old office building in San Francisco, and the Kongregate banner has since been removed. The new office, though kind of indistinguishable from the outside, has a rockin’ interior:

(Yes, in case you were wondering, that is the Indian from The Village People)

(and YES, that is multiplayer Pac-Man!)
