Roguelike games have been part of gaming culture for over 30 years and they have a deep and special place in our hearts. We thought it's about time we all get together and celebrate our love for these games - so we're holding a one day conference to get as many roguelike fans as we can into one place!
The conference will take place all day on September 17th in San Francisco. We'll have talks, a large space for people to play and share their favorite games, and breakout areas for smaller presentations or workshops. We have a bunch of really exciting speakers, but expect more to be added to the schedule as we get closer to the event - if you think you have something to share about roguelikes we hope you'll consider submitting a talk proposal. So far we have:
- Glenn Wichman, Michael Toy & Ken Arnold - All of the original developers of Rogue!
- Zach and Tarn Adams - Dwarf Fortress
- Nick Montfort - Professor of Digital Media at MIT & author of Twisty Little Passages (& more)
- Brian Walker - Brogue
