Event description

Description

Roguelike games have been part of gaming culture for over 30 years and they have a deep and special place in our hearts. Over the last two years hundreds of roguelike fans got together to celebrate these games and their rich history and now we're ready to do it again! We loved getting together and celebrating - so this year we're holding a two day conference to get as many roguelike fans as we can into one place! For the third year in a row!

If you didn't attend last year's event you can read all about it here: https://roguelike.club/event2018.html
